Why work in long term care?
While a paycheck may be enough reward for performing a job, your life’s work deserves more. Fulfillment. A sense of purpose. The knowledge that you are making the world just a little bit better.
Service to others meets all those criteria – fulfillment in knowing that you making a difference in the lives of individuals not related to you, purpose in focusing on other people rather than yourself, and often immediate evidence that you are improving the world one smile at a time.
Geriatric caregiving provides even more. You will assist a population that has already done its best to make the world a better place. You will establish long term relationships and enrich your own life as well as others. And you will work in an environment with other compassionate, like-minded people who share your desire to make a difference.
