How Caregivers Offer Patients More Than Just Healthcare, Hebron, Connecticut

Many families rely on caregivers to provide a sick or aging relative with health services. But the relationship between caregiver and patient goes beyond meeting basic health care needs. Staff Mates Homecare is here to explain the added value caregivers can provide. The home health care agency in Hebron, CT, is dedicated to providing compassionate in-home care for elderly patients. 

How Caregivers Offer More Than Just Health Services

  1. Companionship: Caregivers can build a deep relationship with their patients. In addition to helping clients stick to a medication schedule and maintain their personal hygiene, home care providers also engage in conversation to keep seniors’ minds active, will take them to appointments, play games. The patient knows they have a companion in their caregiver. 

  2. caregiversHousehold Support: While health and hygiene are priorities for caregivers, they also offer added support around the house. Seniors may face a bigger challenge completing household chores than they once did. Caregivers will help them with light housekeeping and cooking.

  3. Communication With Families: As much as you might want to be there for an aging relative every day, work and life obligations may keep you away longer than you’d like. A caregiver can be a link between you and your loved one, providing regular communication and updates on their condition. You will never be left with doubts about how your relative is doing.
