At its foundation, in home care for elderly patients is a statute of care that is centered around the needs and wishes of the senior. Prior to the completion of a task, caregivers question the importance of the task, the impact it has on the senior, and in what manner the senior wishes to accomplish the task. Caregivers enhance interaction with the senior by assessing their likes, dislikes, things they enjoy, their passions, and more. This provides the necessary tools for social, emotional and intellectual interaction with the senior.
The process of senior assessment is an essential tool that Comfort Keepers rely on to better care for their seniors. Too often, caregivers spend countless hours talking about their lives, children and things that they are involved in or doing. While caregivers are encouraged to share things about themselves with their seniors, the ability to establish a more meaningful connection with the senior will provide a foundation for a lasting and trusting companionship.
