Downey Live-In Care for Elderly & Senior

a-1 home care









Performing the duties of a caregiver isn’t easy work and not everyone is cut out for it.  When you have an Elderly loved one who has lost some independence or all of it and needs living assistance, it’s common for family members to begin providing temporary care.  More often than not, the family member providing care will get burnt out because the duties of care were more time consuming and exhausting than expected.  Home care agencies strive to find caregivers who have the right set of qualities to provide compassionate care.  This article titled Characteristics of a Good Care Giver point out that a caregiver should be compassionate, understanding, reliable, dependable, patient, and flexible.  Keep those qualities in mind when you interview potential caregiver candidates.  When interviewing, be sure to look out for certain red flags that may hint at their inability to provide compassionate care.  For example, if your loved one is present and they act as if they’re not there or treat them like a child, you might want to keep looking.  If they have trouble answering your questions about experiences in the past, you might want to keep looking for a caregiver who has been able to successfully find effective solutions to problems.
