Back in the day, as healthcare professionals, we often had to choose between a rewarding career and a flexible lifestyle. Thanks to major advances in technology and more varied career options, that’s no longer the case. Today, those of us on the Medex Homecare Team get to enjoy both.
As a career choice homecare is about as rewarding as it gets. The ability to make a meaningful difference in the lives of an entire family— to see that difference transform before your very eyes and know in your heart that without you, their lives would be somehow lesser—is a reality that rarely exists within a hurried confines of a hospital or nursing home, or any other institution, for that matter.
The bond that exists between patient and caregiver is sacred. It’s something that’s impossible to explain to those who labor in other professions. And in homecare, that bond is so much closer. You literally become part of an extended family.
Homecare can be more challenging, too. There are times when you have to think on your feet to solve a problem or get things done in conditions that might not be ideal. But for many of us, that’s part of the fun. Every day is different from the next. Homecare is never boring.
For those of us who are part of the Medex Homecare team, it’s also comforting to know that we are never alone. We may be flying solo, but we know if the need ever arises —day or night— help is never more than a phone call away. There’s always a clinical supervisor or specialist available to answer a question or give advice.
Medex is one of the oldest and most respected professional homecare organizations in our community, and those of us fortunate enough to be part of the team are darn proud and really good at what we do. And we function like a team. We get together regularly to share our experiences, learn new skills and techniques and kick back and laugh a little.
Face it…we spend the better part of our lives at work. Why not make the best of it? Being part of Team Medex means we can do what we love most, with a flexible schedule that fits our busy lifestyle. What’s better than that?
If you’re a dedicated healthcare professional or someone aspiring to be, there just might be a place for you on our team. Give a call, let’s talk about your future.
