Being a Caregiver

Being a caregiver at New Perspective is rewarding. One main reason is our residents. As a caregiver, you will get to know some amazing older adults who have chosen to live life with purpose in one of our communities. And they’ll get to know you. You’ll form deep connections as you go about each day, caring for residents and assisting with activities. Through those relationships, you’ll make a difference in their quality of life – and realize they’re doing the same for you.

“I love people. I’m a people person. If you want to change the world, it is one random act of kindness. The residents give you so many memories and stories, which makes my job more rewarding. It’s a great environment.”

Fionte Steward, New Perspective Team Member

“I get to build relationships with people, instead of having a patient for a day. In college, nobody wanted to do long-term care. They still don’t believe me when I tell them how great it is. No day is the same. We have fun with the residents and I love the team members – they’re awesome.”

Juan Rodriguez, New Perspective Team Member

“I like the people – the residents and staff. It’s an ideal place to work.”
