At Skillcare, we know how important it is for your loved one to be comfortable with their carer, so we have a dedicated matching service which helps to ensure this – matching carers with families based on individual care needs and personalities.
As they’re often going to be caring into your loved one’s home, and become a fundamental component of their life, it’s essential you take the right steps to choose the right carer for you. As part of this, you should consider personality as well as experience and training.
A carer should offer a set of skills relevant to their tasks, friendly face and gentle encouragement, . Above all, they should be someone with whom your loved one is comfortable and that they trust.
When considering home care for your loved one, it’s crucial that a carer respects personal boundaries. The carer should be respectful of the care recipient’s wishes and work to support their independence and dignity.
Skillcare will work with families and your loved one to create an individual care plan based upon specific instructions. They’ll spend time getting to know your loved one’s likes, dislikes – such as their preferred products – and will follow their particular guidelines.
