Useful tips

When working with a new individual or family, it will take some time to learn what the family needs, how they communicate, and what their expectations are of you. To make this transition smoother you may consider the following things: 

  • Respect privacy and differences. When working in someone’s home or with a family member it is essential that you respect the privacy of the entire family. Do not talk about the individual or family outside of work. Keep in mind that each family is unique and may not function the way that you do. Family dynamics are unique and at times you may hear or see things that you should not get involved with.
  • Keep appropriate boundaries. Even though you may be providing care in someone’s home, remember that this is a working relationship. Be mindful when asking personal questions about the individual or family. Find a balance with friendly conversation and avoid overly disclosing information about your life.
  • Ask questions. Find out as much information about job responsibilities and the person you will be providing care for as possible. Do they have a care plan? Do they have allergies? Are there any special medical circumstances? Are there any special tactics for calming down the client if they become agitated? What are their likes and dislikes?
  • Be honest about your comfort level. Are you comfortable dressing an individual? Bathing? Feedings? If you are not comfortable, be honest with the family before accepting the position. It’s important that you are confident in your responsibilities and provide quality care.
  • Be dependable. Your dependability impacts many people! Individuals and families who need care are dependent on you to be available and on time for work. Remember that often times caring for an individual is a full time job for these families and they rely on your care!
