Home Care In Cheltenham & Gloucestershire
There is no hard and fast rules for caring for the elderly. Often we have to think on our feet and take every day as it comes. However, establishing a routine can provide a reassuring structure to the day when the world outside is maybe becoming an increasingly confusing and hostile place to live.
This can be a powerful tool to use when we are trying to establish a bond with the person we are looking after. This is important because a relationship based on trust and warmth is likely to be successful. Once the elderly person being cared for feels secure and comfortable, life becomes a lot easier for both the cared for and the carer.
A good, effective routine is always based on mutual interests and we are always prepared for compromise. We never impose a routine upon the person we care for and always remember that people are individuals with likes and dislikes.
Once our carers really get to know the person in our care, we can begin to build a solid relationship based on trust and mutual respect. Therefore, we specialise in keeping the same carers visiting your loved one to build this relationship and to keep the routines in place.
This type of relationship is essential – one based on anything else is doomed to failure.
