Planning in Areas of your Life

There are different ways to plan and many things in your life to plan for. Take steps on planning in areas for your life. Take small steps and start with short goals to not overwhelm yourself. If you want to get in shape start planning a fitness program. Start a business develop a business plan. Learn a skill or get a degree start planning the process to get started, etc. Yes, planning takes work and consistency, so you may start planning to make a plan for those that procrastinate. Schedule a date on your calendar and set a reminder to gather your resources and start planning something special for your life. Remember you do not have to start planning every detail of your life at one time, start in one area at a time, until it becomes routine and a desire to plan.
Planning for Purpose
This also helps if you are caring for a loved one. Set a date for you to plan out the areas of life your loved one may need to accomplish. For example, life insurance, power of attorney, advance directive, vacations,
and etc. Setting time to accomplish these most important factors can release the panic when issues may arise unexpectant.
Proverbs 21:5 The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes only to poverty. #silvercare4u

How Does A Home Care Agency Be the Best for Seniors?

How does a home care agency be the best for Seniors?  That is the question I ask myself today.  As one of the Owners and an active leader in daily operations at Silver Care, I take time to ask myself each day, “What can Silver Care do to help our seniors that we serve today?” As I surfed the internet I came across another blog that listed the (6) best qualities of a In Home Care Service.  This is what was listed…

  1.  A skilled Team
  2. Caters to Special Needs
  3. Experience
  4. Commitment and Dedication
  5. A Strong Reputation
  6. Adapts to the Changing Needs of a Senior

As I read each one I contemplated if Silver Care is reaching the target on all those areas!  The results that I came up with is “YES”, Silver Care is making great strides in providing the best caregivers to provide care for our partners.  This in itself creates a skill team. Do we miss the mark sometimes? Of course we do, but our goal is to keep going until we get it RIGHT! Silver Care was birthed from life experiences and each day has its challenges but also great rewards serving others in need!

Common Problems with Home Health Care Agencies

While home health care can be a real life-saver for those with elderly parents who need assistance working with providers is often a daunting task that can be difficult for both the senior and their caretaker(s). It can be a difficult journey finding the home caregivers or nurses that are right for you.For those just starting the journey into the home health care system, there may still be a lot you don’t know yet.

 

Top Clients Complaints about Home Care Agencies

  • Communication Problems Between Client and the Agency
  • Insufficient Caregiver Training
  • Too Much Technology
  • Irresponsible Caregiver Behaviors
  • Cultural differences

Communication Problems Between Client and the Agency

The most common problem lies in poor communication. There are many times when you resort to home health care because your loved one is not able to adequately take care of themselves on their own. For many day-to-day activities, it is up to the caregiver and you to have good communication, so they know what has to be done. It can be especially difficult when you are working with multiple caregivers at a time.

Insufficient Caregiver Training

One of the biggest challenges facing the home healthcare industry is the fact that there is insufficient training. Although certain certifications and titles require that you go through specific training or schooling, you will find that not everyone is as prepared for the tasks as others. Cooking and cleaning abilities may be something you want to evaluate before hiring a potential caregiver.

Too Much Technology

With the growing role technology plays in our daily lives, it is no surprise that the internet poses a huge distraction to caregivers. Clients often complain that their caregivers spend too much time on their phones or laptops that could be better spent paying attention to their clients. It’s very challenging to expect employees won’t use their phones or computers while at work. But you can manage it.
