Caregiver Jobs

Caregiver Job Overview

Caregivers are the men and women working with clients in their homes as opposed to clinical settings. Caregivers often handle a number of tasks and duties around the house, including washing dishes, shopping for groceries and assisting patients with brushing their teeth and taking care of their personal hygiene. Though they cannot prescribe medications, some Caregivers can dispense medications and ensure that patients take the medications.

Caregiver Job Education Requirements

Unlike other jobs in the healthcare field, Caregiver jobs do not require an advanced degree or even a college degree. Some working in the field have a GED certificate or a high school diploma. Caregivers usually go through some on the job training with a licensed nurse or an experienced Caregiver. Though some work with the same patients every day, others find themselves working for two or more clients throughout the week. They must be strong enough to help patients get out of bed, into the shower or into the bathroom. They must have strong communication and time-management skills.

Caregiver Job Market

The number of Caregiver positions will increase more quickly than average rate of growth. Between 2012 and 2022, the number of positions will increase by 49 percent, which equals more than 580,000 new Caregiver positions. In 2012, there were more than one million men and women working in the field. As the number of baby boomers and others reaching an advanced age increases, those patients will need assistance at home.

Caregiver Job Salary Information

Caregivers typically make an hourly salary that is just above minimum wage. The range of salaries starts at $7.25 per hour and rises to $15 or more per hour. Those with a nursing license often make a higher amount than other Caregivers make because they can take vital statistics and dispense prescription medication under the supervision of a doctor. Home Health Care Aides and Personal Care Assistants are other similar jobs. Those working as home health aides often work with patients coming home after a stay in the hospital and with those who have serious medical conditions.
