Design your own professional private caregiver business

Working with seniors can be a life enriching experience. Bring attention to your passion to help seniors, make a difference in your community, and make good living while you do it. Get the word out that you are ‘the’ private caregiver, or private caregiver business that offers superior home care support services in your area. People in search of caregivers need to be able to find you, and be able to learn about what caregiver business services you have to offer. 

You have to demonstrate to potential family members in charge of hiring that you are committed, reliable, loyal through not just your words but your actions as well. When contacted, be transparent and share some information about yourself and your abilities as a caregiver, as well as what makes you unique. One of the most obvious ways for you to be unique is to find out what your local competitors are up to and turn their weakness into your strength! 

You can offer your new clients the same conveniences such as a terms of service agreement, care assessment, job description, visit reports, invoicing, and taking care of your own payroll tax and deductions (click link to see Shopify store for all these templates). To top it all off you can offer a year end statement breaking down month by month your service costs for them to present to their accountant. This year end statement will be key sales point when it comes to applicable senior tax deductions and direct credits, why? because what it means is that even after you are paid your rate in full, your overall hourly rate could be less for the senior client after deductions and that means that you can charge more per hour!. 

Your responsibility as a caregiver will be register your non-medical senior care business,  keep files/paperwork organized, send paperwork when required to your clients/ government, as well as see an accountant once a year. If all caregivers knew how simple this is, more would be doing it which is the reason Wise Caregiving was born, to help as many caregivers as possible see their own potential.

In order to have an exceptional private caregiver business you must have good communication, physical strength, endurance, patience, resourcefulness, creativity, awareness, kindness, attention to detail, good common sense, and willingness to take initiative.
