Finding a caregiver who is a perfect fit for our clients is a top priority at Assisting Hands of Schaumburg, to ensure a lasting relationship that is not only beneficial but also rewarding. We first interview the future client and their family regarding their interests and hobbies.
We’ll talk about each of the following:
- Medical needs
- Client’s physical ability
- Client’s home environment
- Frequency of services needed
- Location of client’s home
- Personality traits of client
- Caregiver gender preferences
These are all extremely important factors taken into consideration before placing a caregiver in your home. It is also a part of our business in which we take great pride as it creates long lasting relationships and even friendships.
Creating the Perfect Match Between Client and Caregiver
A great example of a perfect match between client and caregiver is the friendship of Gertrude and her caregiver Maria. Maria has been taking care of Gertrude for over 2 years and they enjoy each other’s company immensely. Gertrude and Maria are both avid sports fans, and every week they make a schedule of all the games they want to watch.
They also enjoy politics and frequently watch debates together. Maria knows what and when Gertrude likes to eat. Maria will also put on Gertrude’s favorite TV shows when it is time and they frequently read the paper together. Relationships like that of Maria and Gertrude are the reason we do what we do at Assisting Hands of Schaumburg.
We value creating long term relationships for our clients and caregivers to ensure stable ongoing home care that clients can count on with a caregiver that’s like family.
