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 offer superior senior care services in your area. People in search of caregivers need to see you stand out and get an immediate feeling that you are without a doubt a caregiver worth their time to learn more about what private caregiver business services you have to offer.
You have to let people know you are eager to work, committed, reliable, loyal, and most important that you are working in this field because you have the utmost respect for your elders. If you can communicate this in your profiles on care sites, and social media then you will automatically stand out from the other local caregivers.
When contacted, be transparent and share enough detail 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 what they have to offer. 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. 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.
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.
