"Caregivers are in demand as America's seniors increase and the Caregiver Photo Contest showcases the benefits of working as a senior caregiver."
Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) July 22, 2013
Caregiverlist, the nation’s online career center for professional senior caregivers, announces a summer photo contest highlighting senior caregivers and the seniors in their care. As professional senior caregivers turn to Caregiverlist for career advice, caregiver training and employment, this summer photo contest showcases the valued services senior caregivers provide.
Caregivers, Certified Nursing Aides, and Certified Home Health Aides can submit a photo of themselves with their senior client to the Caregiverlist Summer Photo Contest for Senior Caregivers. The contest will start Monday, July 8, 2013, and be hosted on the Caregiverlist Facebook page.
Contest winners will be chosen based on popularity via voting. Caregiverlist will award $100, $50 and $25 Amazon gift cards to the top 3 voted pictures and free t-shirts to the runners-up.
Photo submissions that feature some creativity and uniqueness will bring competition to this contest. Caregiverlist expects that the caregivers, Certified Nursing Aides and Certified Home Health Aides who submit "fun" photos will gain more votes.
Senior caregivers provide emotional support and socialization for seniors, enabling many families to continue to support grandparents and parents with quality care in their home. Adult children often do not live in the same city as their aging parents which means caregiving often becomes much more than a job for senior caregivers.
Caregivers may submit their photo on Facebook and vote for caregiver and senior photo submissions here.
"Caregivers have many great stories about how the wisdom seniors share with them and we know the photo contest will feature some of the activities caregivers enjoy with their senior clients," says Kristin Kruk, Caregiverlist Community Manager. "Caregivers are in demand as America's senior's increase and the photos will showcase the benefits of working as a senior caregiver."
The 2013 Caregiverlist Employment Index profiled the 40% growth in the senior care industry since 2008. Senior care will be one of the top employers in the next decade, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. As senior care companies hire from 3 to 6 caregivers and nursing aides each week, more senior caregivers are needed.
Caregivers perform the essential job functions for their senior clients—from seniors who need 24-hour care to those in nursing facilities. Working as a professional caregiver provides employee benefits along with a fulfilling career.
Certified Nursing Aids continue to be in high demand. Long-term care insurance companies often require senior caregivers in the home to also be certified as a nursing assistant. Becoming a certified nursing aide, or C.N.A., will guarantee ongoing employment and begin a career in the senior care industry.
