Caregivers

Caregivers in IndianapolisExceptional caregivers mean exceptional care

SHC caregivers are part of an exclusive group. Fewer than 20 percent of applicants meet our stringent criteria for honesty, competency and dependability.

Our caregivers aren’t simply looking for work; they’re answering a call to serve others and make a difference. They’re experienced, mature adults—many of them retirees—dedicated to helping make our clients’ lives as rich and satisfying as possible. It shows in their devotion to our clients and their willingness to go above and beyond.

The right match makes the difference

We carefully match you with a caregiver based on your needs and personality. That means we take time to listen to your story, learning as much as we can about who you are, who and what’s been a part of your life, what you enjoy, what you don’t, and the type of services you’re looking for. Our unique matching process prioritizes your needs and matches you with caregivers whose strengths will best meet your needs for the long term. We believe exceptional care is about trusting, meaningful relationships, so you can count on consistent care from the same caregiver as long as you like.

Hiring only the best caregivers has helped make Senior Home Companions Indianapolis’ premier service for providing in-home care for nearly two decades. Our caregivers know that being a part of the SHC family comes with a long-standing reputation for excellence. It’s why nearly half of our caregivers have worked for us for three years or more and many for over 10.

Meet a few of our experienced, exceptional SHC caregivers:

 

Katie, Caregiver

Katie enjoyed a career as a dental hygienist then answered a call to care for others. SHC clients describe Katie as “delightful” and “just lovely,” someone who cares for them with extra helpfulness and resourcefulness. Warm, thoughtful and engaging, she taps into her varied interests to engage clients in thoughtful conversations.

She started a book study with one of her recent clients to get her involved in a meaningful activity that engaged her intellectually and emotionally. According to the client’s family and friends, the activity helped the client feel more positive and encouraging, giving her a new lease on life.

Jennifer, Caregiver

Jennifer Calwell spent 18 years working as a personal assistant for an agent of a local insurance company. She’s been with Senior Home Companions for a number of years and is very experienced in providing personal care, for our clients as well as for her own loved ones. She cared for her mother for several years at home and later when she moved to nursing home.

Her joy for caring for others shows in all she does. Whether it’s cooking, helping with housekeeping or simply spending time with her clients, Jennifer’s compassion is at the heart of her work. It’s why she has long-term relationships with her clients, who consistently endorse her work. One client says, “SHC will continue to do well as long as you have caregivers like Jennifer.”

Clarissa, Caregiver

Clarissa worked with Normal Life of Indiana for 6 years as a Direct Support Professional. She was responsible for aiding disabled individuals both young and old with independent living skills.  Clarissa has had a heart for caring for older adults since she was a little girl.  She is very family-oriented and loves spending time with family, friends, and attending church. Clarissa is married to Joseph, who is also a tenured caregiver with SHC. She and Joseph are committed parents to 4 children.
