CAREGivers and Client Relationships

by michellerogers on November 18, 2009

This morning one of our CAREGivers stopped by my office to update me on one of our client’s who recently fell during the night.  Unfortunately his wife had to call 911 and he is recovering in a rehab facility.

Yesterday she stopped in to visit with the client and found him sleeping.  So she sat down and waited until he woke up.  When he woke up he grabbed my CAREGiver’s hand and just smiled at her.  He would not let go of her hand.  His wife was so pleased to see him happy and smiling. 

My CAREGiver told me she thought while he was rehabbing there would be no work for her but his wife insisted she continue to come and visit as well as help her at the rehab facility.  The wife told my CAREGiver “you are our rock”.

The bond between a client and CAREGiver can be very special and this is what we strive for when helping and caring for our clients. When we hire people we focus on learning about the individual and how compassionate they are as individuals.  Their compassion and passion makes the difference.
