There is great strength in a family coming together to care for someone — and the definition of “family” can extend to hiring caregivers who care for your loved one the same way a good daughter would!
Take Claire’s* situation, for example. Claire had a positive, loving family of several wonderful daughters, but when she was assessed with dementia, her daughters wanted to be able to spend quality time with her, rather than spending all their time taking care of her.
They wanted what so many adult children want — to savour every moment they could together. So when Claire needed assistance with household chores and personal care, her daughters hired Comforts of Home – Care to help out.
One of the most important things is to find a caregiver who is a great fit for every client. Claire wanted to maintain independence and have a companion who she trusted. We paired her with a caregiver who was just right! Claire was pleased and her daughter said that they couldn’t have chosen a better person to care for her mother.
“She was an angel,” Claire’s daughter said. Having a strong, positive relationship between client and caregiver is of the utmost importance.
