About Our Caregivers
We understand that caring for people in their own home is a different challenge than caring for people in a hospital or nursing home.
In a hospital or nursing home, speed is often the biggest challenge staff members face. Typically staff members struggle to keep up with their "patient" load. In homes, this is not our biggest challenge, as our caregivers typically focus on caring for one or two people.
At Benefits of Home, we think our biggest challenge is making sure that your family constantly feels like our caregiver is attentive in learning about your unique interests, likes, and dislikes, and that they are being honored and respected at all times. After all, when we enter your home, we are entering your sacred ground.
We Pay Attention to Detail
When we interview caregivers, we are looking for people who truly love seniors. We find that many people who possess the clinical skills necessary often fail as in-home caregivers because they don't have a passion for learning about "the little things" that make in-home care successful. These "little things" can be as simple as learning how someone likes their coffee, or how many ice cubes they like in their water glass. However large or small the detail, we have learned that caregivers who show an interest in making your family member's day better often receive rave reviews from families.
As caregivers pass through our initial orientation program, they are taught to look for the details. We explain the difference between in-home care and nursing care, and we ask them to constantly look for ways to brighten the day of their client.
When we combine all of the elements listed above, the results are wonderful. Our standing goal as a company is not to simply make families happy. Our standing goal as a company is to make families so happy that they tell their friends and acquaintances about us.
