When it comes to caring for the people we love there’s a fine line that we have to walk between too much and not enough.
This is a hard balance to find when you’re caring for someone on your own. Are they feeling smothered by attention and cornered by your constant nagging to take prescriptions? Or are they missing meds and feeling lonely? But, because you are probably spending so much time with them, you’re more likely to see the signs of either occurrence and adjust your care, or call in reinforcements, as needed.
Calling in the reinforcements adds an added weight to balance on that line you’re walking though. If you’re not around to see all of the care being provided then how do you know how much care is being given? Of course, part of the reason that you call us for help is because you need (and deserve!) a break. But taking a break shouldn’t mean you lose touch with your loved one’s care.
That’s why we have developed multiple procedures and systems to communicate with the family members of our clients.
We know how much you care about the people in your life. We care about them, and you, too. We work to make sure that our clients, and their families, are well taken care of and happy. We want to make sure that everyone involved in the care of your loved ones is on the same page to maintain your loved one’s optimal health and happiness. We are happy to work out any additional methods of communication that you might want. If you ever have any questions, we’re here 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to answer them for you.
