Being a provider of daily living support to another requires a deep level of thought and understanding. Mindfulness of both the physical and emotional state helps to establish a more positive and effective care environment. Tending to someone’s everyday needs may appear almost mechanical, as if the routine of it all would involve more automatic responses than thought. While some day-t0-day routines may be completed without much complexity, deeper insight is necessary when it comes to caring for another person. Having a keen awareness of one’s behaviors, moods, personality and abilities aids in the quality of care that is given.
Throughout the years, our Aqua Home Care team has had the pleasure of referring trusted caregivers from our registry to individuals seeking in-home care. Compassionate, mindful caregivers take the time to get to know their clients, paying close attention to behaviors, mood, and more. We strive to help foster positive in-home care experiences for all, and having a care professional nearby who truly cares benefits daily living for those in need of support. Alongside assisting in everyday tasks, a mindful caregiver will be attentive to even the subtleties. Taking time to know the client especially helps the caregiver be aware of both sudden and gradual changes. Taking note of such enables the caregiver to react accordingly. This can include noticing:
- Shifts in behavior
- Mood changes
- Decreased or increased level of abilities
- Decreased or increased appetite
- Reactions to medications
- Personality changes
- And more
Mindful support involves a more profound level of awareness. Clients benefit when the time is taken to truly understand them as a person. We at Aqua Home Care believe that the wellness of all clients should be supported throughout their in-home care experience. This is why we carefully and mindfully make caregiver selections for each unique individual in need of services. For a team that will work to find you the mindful care you need, please give us a call here at Aqua Home Care.
