Tips For a Successful First Day at Work 

Feel Prepared and Confident On Your First Day 

Whether you are meeting your client for the first time or beginning to provide care for someone you already know, these tips can help.


Dress professionally.
Consider wearing scrubs, minimal makeup and avoiding strong scents in case your client has scent sensitivities.


Gather your supplies, such as:

  • Closed-toe, non-slip shoes.
  • Care plan / task sheet.
  • Water bottle.
  • Snacks.
  • Work bag.


Go over your client’s care plan together
This is the care plan specific to your client that was given to you by your employer. Make sure you both understand your role.


Share a little about yourself and get to know your client by asking questions, like:

  • What are your expectations of me?
  • Do you have any restrictions I should be aware of?
  • What food / shows / activities do you like?


Learn how to submit your work hours accurately and on time, so you can make sure you get paid on time.


Call a Peer Mentor.
Peer Mentors have years of experience caregiving as well as coaching other caregivers, and can help answer questions or concerns you may have.
