Ways To Improve The Caregiver/Patient Relationship
Whether a patient has hired a home caregiver for general in-home care or help with recovery after surgery or illness, the patient/caregiver relationship is an important one. At Premier Personal Care, we strive to provide each individual with the in-home, nonmedical support they need.
In order for quality in-home care to take place, seniors need to be comfortable with their home caregiver and be able to form a genuine bond. Your home caregiver helps to ensure you’re receiving the support and assistance you need.
Ask For Help
Asking for help is an important first step toward high-quality communication and understanding with your caregiver. Seniors need to be able to ask for help when they need it, and the home caregiver has to be comfortable with asking you for help when they need clarification on something new or a specific preference you might have.
Part of your home caregiver’s responsibilities is to provide you with companionship and a compassionate listening ear. At Premier Personal Care, we encourage you to tell stories, swap recipes and enjoy the friendship a home caregiver brings.
Understanding Your Home Caregiver’s Responsibilities
Our caregivers are specially trained and qualified to assist you with whatever aspects of life you might need help with; whether it’s washing dishes, sweeping the floor, playing cards or companionship, our home caregivers are trained to help make your life better. A home caregiver can help you maintain or even regain personal freedom to lead a more dignified life at home.
Caregivers can even go grocery shopping for you. For this task, it’s important to provide them with a specific list of items you need. Other important household chores your home caregiver can do for you include preparing meals, walking dogs, watering plants, and cleaning and folding laundry.
Requesting Specific Services
Since your home caregiver’s job is to make your life easier by helping and assisting with household tasks that can help you lead a better life, it’s important to communicate with them about what your needs are. You can always request specific services from your home caregiver to ensure all your needs are being met.
