The Caregiver Bond

Caregivers can spend anywhere from a few hours a week with their clients, to 24 hours a day.  Either way, it is essential that the two parties form a bond.  Consider participating in a few of these activities that will help develop a bond between the caregiver and client, courtesy of Complete Home Care Services of Tennessee.

Converse

Conversation is a simple tool that helps build trust between the caregiver and client, and will aid in developing a strong connection between the two parties.  Conversation allows you to learn more about the other and find similar interests, which will only make for a greater bond.  Companionship is a crucial part of everyday life, and conversing is a great way to build a relationship while providing in-home care.

Bingo/Trivia Nights

Games like bingo and trivia will drive conversation and is a fun way to interact.  Whether it’s a friendly in-home caregiver-client competition, or a game at the town’s community center, this is an easy way to have fun while providing companionship.

Caregivers are Relationship Oriented

Odds are your client has friends and family that they want to keep in touch with.  Whether you communicate through phone calls every so often, or hand written letters, the caregiver should aid the client in keeping up to date with their close friends and family.  This is a great way for the caregiver to learn more about the client, and a perfect time to open up to the client as well.  This will further build the relationship, all while putting a smile on the clients face.

Building a strong bond will make the day-to-day operations easier and more enjoyable for the client.  Whether the caregiver sees the client for five hours a week, or provides in-home health care around the clock, consider partaking in these or similar activities to build a stronger bond.  If you are interested in learning more about in-home care for all ages, contact Complete Home Care Services of Tennessee today!
