You’ve got a big cleaning bill to sort out, but don’t want to spend all that time trying to find the right housekeeper.
And with an ever-increasing number of nursing homes across the country offering housekeeping services, there are plenty of jobs to be had.
But what are housekeeping jobs?
There are two types of housekeeping work: housekeeping staff, which typically work in a home’s kitchens, bathrooms and kitchens, and housekeeping assistants, who help to care for elderly or chronically ill residents, as well as families with children.
How does a homekeeper’s career start?
Most nursing homes offer both paid and unpaid housekeeping positions.
Some, like the state of Washington’s nursing home program, are part of the U.S. Department of Labor.
But you can also start your own job as an unpaid housekeeper if you’re willing to take a few extra hours of unpaid leave to find a job.
Caregivers, like housekeepers, typically earn a base salary of $10 an hour, which can increase to up to $12 an hour with overtime, depending on your experience level.
Here’s what you need when choosing a nursing home to work at.
The first step is to determine if your home has a nursing facility, and if so, how many nurses and home health care aides are available.
You’ll also need to determine whether your nursing home has an active housekeeping program and how many residents are enrolled in it.
Then, it’s time to get your resume ready.
This resume will tell you everything you need about a nursing care home.
But first, you’ll need to check with your home’s manager or administrator to make sure your resume meets the requirements for an unpaid job.
Your job as a housekeeper will require you to perform tasks in a variety of different areas, such as keeping a refrigerator stocked and cleaning a kitchen sink.
And you’ll also be expected to make periodic visits to the home, clean and maintain areas, or supervise others, such the nursing home’s staff.
A home’s nurse will also be responsible for keeping the house’s food and supplies in order, as they’re not allowed to leave the home without the proper permission.
What kind of nursing home are you looking for?
Most home care programs are based on the type of nursing facility you live in.
However, there’s no rule that says that nursing homes have to be the only nursing homes available.
That’s why home health aides can work in nursing homes as well.
