Every caregiver has their own merits and areas for improvement. How do you find which one to hire for your loved one?
Aside from ensuring your home care needs are matched and addressed with the skills of a caregiver, there are other qualities that you can also consider.
- Attention to detail
A live-in caregiver has to be aware of all the details of the patient’s daily activities. They must be observant – subtle changes in the person’s appetite or sudden limping can be a sign of something else.
Care at home can get complicated and your caregiver should be able to be on top of all these activities. They must be able to manage important records and keep track of your loved one’s condition.
Proper communication with the patient, the family, and the healthcare community is important. Being able to effectively convey a message can save time and resources.
Being able to relate to the patient can help improve the caregiving process. The patient realizes they are not alone and they have someone they can trust.
Does the caregiver deliver their promises? Can you count on them to show up and deliver what they have mentioned? Reliability is a must in providing care.
