Healthcare for Caregivers!
It is with great pleasure that we announce that we are now offering medical benefits to our caregiver team! This has been a goal for Aware Senior Care for years and we are proud to say that they will go into effect September 1st for all employees that qualify

We all know that it is difficult to find medical insurance that is both affordable and has the benefits that can actually be useful to both employee and their family.

Aware is always on the lookout for perks and bonuses that we can offer our employees. Over the past few years we have been able to offer vision, dental, critical illness as well as accident insurance. It has been our longstanding view that our caregiver’s health and wellbeing is just as crucial as the care that they provide to our seniors. Now we are happy to be able to be able to take care of them the way that they deserve! Logo
6 Ways to Manage Multiple Senior Care Jobs
While rewarding, being a caregiver for seniors is a demanding career choice. Countless responsibilities are required for the role, not to mention your full attention and patience, and that is just caring for one person. Many caregivers have to take on multiple jobs to make ends meet, or to manage a full-time schedule with a care agency. Somewhere in between their busy schedules and desire to give their all, caregivers have to carve out a little personal time for themselves, their loved ones or their children. Balancing caregiver work and a personal life can, at times, seem impossible.

If you’re a caregiver who is juggling multiple senior care jobs, you know your day-to-day tasks can sometimes seem overwhelming. You may be feeling the weight of stress and obligations on your shoulders or wonder how you’re ever going to get it all done. However, with careful planning, organization and self-care, it is possible to do it and in a healthy way. Here are a few tips to help.

Our Families
“How would you rate the impact of the services on you daily life?”

Paulette T.
“It is a very difficult thing to care for my mom, and it was extremely stressful, but the two people in particular who stayed with my her were very very good and lovely people. My mom really grew to like them a lot.”

“The most helpful part is just having eyes and ears on her and having interaction with her when I am not in the room because I am fixing food or doing laundry.”

Our Caregivers
How likely are you to recommend working for Aware to an interested friend?

“They are very professional and open. They love the caregiver, and they know we are a big part of their business.”

We met Bruce and Robin when we first started out at a Chamber of Commerce Expo in 2014 and we quickly realized they share many of the common values we do – providing quality exceptional service while taking time to give back to the community. This year was very special in that both were recognized by the Chamber of Commerce with 2019 Excellence Awards.

Appropriately Mr. Handyman of Western Wake was recognized by the Chamber for exceptional Community Service. Bruce and Robin opened Mr. Handyman of Western Wake County in September, 2010 servicing Cary, Morrisville, Apex, Holly Springs, parts of Raleigh plus surrounding areas. They provide a range of both residential and commercial repair and maintenance services

At the forefront is their “Done Right Guarantee." You can relax knowing they guarantee their workmanship and products they purchase. If there is a problem with the workmanship performed by a Mr. Handyman technician or with a product provided by Mr. Handyman, just give them a call and they’ll send someone out to make it right.

Focusing on supporting our Seniors, Mr. Handyman of Western Wake can help seniors stay longer and safer in their home with services to install grab bars in showers, widen doorways, build handicap ramps, and more.

The loss of independence can be devastating to a senior and families often go through the difficult process of helping this loved one come to terms with it. They’re not helpless, however. You and your loved one have the decision-making power, resources, and support available to make the best of the situation.

The important thing is constant communication and listening to your loved one’s needs. If you work together as a team, it will most likely result in an optimal outcome
