Caregiver interview questions and answers

It is very crucial to know your profile’s selling points before appearing for a caregiver interview and it is equally important to know the employer’s preferences. Since there are no definite questions for a caregiver interview, you can prepare by seeing the specific job description, sample interview questions and answers and general duties associated with caregiver position.

Think about your real life achievements to support the qualifications mentioned in resume. For instance, if you have claimed you have exceptional skills in bedside care, be prepared to quote an instance where you devised and implemented some productive activity.

Following are some sample caregiver interview questions along with appropriate answers.

Caregiver Interview Questions and Answers

Why are you interested in this job ? OR Why do you want to be a caregiver ?
Possessing a nurturing nature, caregiving comes naturally to me. I have worked in different personal care capacities for more than 7 years. I am a compassionate individual who enjoys providing exceptional care to people of different ages. It gives me great satisfaction to help someone and the job actually enables me to bring a positive change in the lives of my clients.

Tell me about yourself ?
I am a sociable person with a natural capability of providing continuous care. Empathy is embedded in my personality and I am a good listener. Moreover, I have a track record of providing elderly and child care and immensely enjoy each moment of my work.

What are the main responsibilities of caregiver ?
The main task of a caregiver is to provide companionship. In addition, a caregiver provides assistance in activities of daily living such as personal hygiene, toileting assistance, feeding and changing, prescribed medicine administration, housekeeping and laundry.

What does the work of a caregiver encompass according to you ?
Caregiving is not just providing physical care to the patient assigned to you. Providing emotional support to patients or clients is also very important. In addition, ensuring that the patient surroundings are organized and safe is also the responsibility of a caregiver.

What is your experience as a caregiver with children ?
I have looked after children of ages 6 months to 10 years. I understand and can cater to their differing emotional and physical needs, as well as provide them with support in homework and special projects. I have also been extremely successful with children suffering from ADHD and Autism.

Speaking of special needs, what is your specific experience with children who need specialized care ?
I have been especially trained to assist children with special needs so that they can integrate into society without problems. I have assisted therapists in helping children come to terms with their conditions and learn to build up on their strengths. And I have also provided special needs assistance in a number of situations.

What is your caregiving experience with geriatric patients ?
Working with the elderly is actually more challenging than working with children. However, I am trained in handling emotional upheavals, medical emergencies and administration of medication.

How do you handle patients with dementia ? Do you have a special plan ?
Patients with dementia are the most difficult to handle – unless you delve into what they are feeling and thinking that makes them act the way they do. I try to understand their disease and put myself in their place. Once I understand – for instance, if a patient has Alzheimer’s, I will know that he doesn’t remember half the things I tell him and will be impatient with me – I can easily formulate a care plan in my head and let him take the lead. Unless of course, what transpires hurts him physically or mentally.

Have you ever come across a situation where a patient with dementia tested your patience ?
Many times. But there was one such incident where the patient refused to take her medication. That was alarming as she was suffering from many underlying physical conditions as well. No matter what I did or said, she wouldn’t open her mouth. She would just sit there and sulk. It was extremely challenging to provide her with any kind of care.

What are the typical skills necessary to perform caregiver job ?
Caregivers need to be patient, empathetic and extremely dedicated to their work. If you are doing it for the money, you will never be able to get it right. You also have to be very organized so that you can keep the patients’ timetables in check.

Do you believe that caregivers need medical training ?
Yes, I do. Medical training is extremely important in a caregiver’s job. Whether you are handling children, adults or the elderly, you may come across emergency situations. With a little medical training, you can save someone’s life.

What are your strengths ?
Compassion and actively listening are my major strengths. I am bilingual fluent in Spanish and English and possess remarkable rapport building skills. I have demonstrated ability to involve clients in social activities and to provide exceptional daily living services with high regard for their privacy.

What are your salary expectations ?
Tips : You need to do some research before answering this one. Check the competitive salary in your area and never mention a fixed figure say around--- or plus ----- try not to negotiate too much at this point to leave your options open however if you want to set a minimum limit this is the time to clarify it.

Do you have any questions ?
Tip : Interviewers generally like proactive candidates. Ask some relevant questions such as typical schedule or routine tasks, total number of clients, branches of the company, total employees and the like.
