Senior Caregiver Resume Samples

Senior Caregivers are not medical professionals, but they are involved in providing support to clients with their physical and cognitive health. Such tasks may include assisting them in walking, exercising, and being supportive to them during emotional breakdowns. Some common duties associated to this role and included on the Senior Caregiver Resume are – understanding the mental and physical condition of the patient, assisting with personal care, handling home management tasks, providing companionship during walks or other recreational activities, participating in case reviews, monitoring and assessing patient’s condition, and educating family members about patient’s condition.

Apart from depicting proven work experience, Senior Caregivers should as well showcase these attributes – excellent knowledge of CPR, knowledge of housekeeping tasks, good time management skills, physical endurance, and knowledge of health rules. While some employers want only a high school diploma, many want to see in the resume completion of a state-mandated training in caregiving.
