I am glad to have someone here who thinks caring and business can go along very well. Let me throw some light on caretaker of babies and old ones business idea.
We have often seen families where there are old people who need special attention and care. The youth of the house may not be able to provide that which I believe is not their fault. There are commitments to be met such as education, career, and other relationships. It doesn’t mean their care is any less for their aging parents. Similarly, there are infants in the house which also need continuous care and monitoring. Especially for working mothers, there is a need for an assistant who can share the burden. Nobody can replace a mother’s care but a helping hand is always appreciated. There might be a case where there are both a needy old individual as well as an infant/toddler. Things can be really difficult to manage in such a situation.
If you happen to be someone who can take care of babies as well as old people, you can surely consider this business. Things which are necessarily required in such a profession are:
- Patience- Dealing with old age people or toddlers can be a test of your patient. You are required to be cool tempered and patience for such a job.
- Soft-spoken- A harsh and loud speaking individual can never be accepted for such a job. You can train your voice, if required, to be eligible for it.
- Good stamina- Taking care of others can sometimes be really a tiring job. You are expected to have a good stamina to excel in this business.

Do the self-analysis. Find out if you have the above qualities and most importantly, the heart to help others. One thing you should keep in mind that the mentioned qualified should come naturally from you. You cannot fake for long.
