Caregivers are the backbone of care for their loved one. They are the people who understand the wants, needs and normal routines of those they look after more than anyone else. Because of this close relationship, the caregivers voice is also important for decision making and sometimes trying to balance your personal life with your loved ones needs can be a daunting or seemingly impossible task. In such situations, the caregiver sometimes needs care too; someone to speak to about your concerns,
or to be instructed on how to attend to a recovering or newly incapacitated loved one. We offer in-person counselling sessions and over the phone ‘check-in’ support programs for your wellbeing. To be an effective caregiver, you must also be strong mentally and emotionally and our support is geared to help you recharge and prevent burn-out.
Some of the key concepts that caregivers will learn with our program include:
- Personal care such as grooming, dressing bathing, toileting
- Safe ambulation/walking
- Safe transfers
- How to socially engage with
