Matching your loved one with the right caregiver can be a long evaluation process. You want to ensure the right criteria is being met, and you are able to trust that caregiver to give your loved one the best care. Here are some tips on what we look for when identifying the caregiver that would work best with your loved one.

 

How does your caregiver’s personality pair with your loved one?

 

This will come through heavily in trying new activities, self care, and working together in unison on staying healthy. Trying new activities and getting your loved one involved with communal activities is a great addition as well. Fortunately, their resistance/comfortability to get involved with those activities will rely on the caregiver. Can the caregiver enforce it’s importance? Will they get engaged with the right activities for them?

 

Do their goals mesh well?

 

Caregivers will need to set goals for those they are caring for and, again, enforce the necessity of its impact on health. Also, their ability to keep track of those goals and work on them with who they care for. This can make all the difference in the long run, and getting the right caregiver is crucial.
