How Yashoda found her calling as a caregiver

How Yashoda found her calling as a caregiver

Every person in this world has dreams and aspirations. If not for themselves, then for their loved ones. But not everyone gets those dreams fulfilled due to various reasons. It could be due to a lack of opportunity, lack of education, or resources.

Yashoda is one such person who has big dreams for her children. Belonging to a family that had to think a thousand times before spending a single penny, she was an Anganwadi worker with a meager income of Rs. 2000 per month. Her husband works in a security agency and his salary did not provide them with enough funds to give their children a life she dreamt of.

Yashoda and her family

One day she met the YouCare team during a field visit of their team at her Anganwadi. YouCare is an organization that provides professional training to marginalized women like Yashoda and then provides them with employment as babysitters and nursing assistants at home.

Just as any parent, Yashoda wanted her children to study in an English medium school, get proper education, and pursue higher studies. She wished them to have a future that would be much better than what she saw as a child. She needed a job that would provide her with a better salary and dignity so that she could save for her children`s future and instil in them a sense of confidence and determination.

Their five-stage process includes interviewing women to make sure that they are compassionate and capable of handling the loved ones of others. The second stage empowers them to be assertive and trains them in the tasks they would need to perform at home. Administrating medicines, handling the diet chart, personal care and hygiene, etc. are covered in the program. Once the candidate is evaluated for their potential, the trainees undergo a medical check-up to ensure they are in good health. They are then put on multiple assignments to gauge their performance on the field before being hired to become full-time or part-time caregivers and work at multiple assignments matching their location, expertise, timing and nature of the job.

Yashoda has successfully cleared all the levels of the program and with her experience as an Anganwadi worker, she has been voted as the best caregiver multiple times. She has been working with YouCare for the past two years with a monthly salary sufficient enough to pay for rent, school fees and her children`s tuition fees. She has recently also bought a smartphone and is learning how to use Whatsapp and Facebook.

She is happy that her children can have a future she dreamt for them. Today her confidence can be seen in the eyes of her children who are proud of their mother and are confident that one day they will fulfill the dreams she has for them.

Testimonials

We had hired a patient care attendant for my wife who was recuperating after a hip surgery and was completely bed ridden. Youcare carefully analyzed our requirement and understood the preferences and nature of my wife before attaching a caregiver to us. Our caregiver was very caring, punctual and always had a smile on her face. She not only attended to my wife`s needs but also encouraged her to become independent. Within 6 months my wife could actually start walking. I will really recommend YouCare to everyone in need of professional care services.

I have been a client with YouCare for the past 2 years. Their babysitter is now like a member of our family who we can trust and rely upon for taking care of each and every need of our 4 year old daughter. This is a professional organisation managed by well educated professionals wanting to do good work and provide exceptional services. Will certainly recommend to all working couples to reach out to them.
