To me, being a caregiver is about passion, love, caring, and being selfless.

Caregiverlist, the nation’s premier online career center for professional senior caregivers, announces the winners of its summer photo contest highlighting senior caregivers and the seniors in their care. Professional senior caregivers turn to Caregiverlist for career advice, caregiver training and employment, and this summer photo contest showcases the valued services senior caregivers provide.

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 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 o 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.
