Building Trust Between Caregiver & Senior Patient

Collaborative Post

Care assistants or caregivers, work in a role which is both challenging and rewarding. I think it takes a special person to work in these jobs. If you have an elderly relative who requires a full-time carer, you want to feel that they are in safe, compassionate hands. It can be hard to see a stranger assisting a relative you remember being fit and able previously. So, it’s important that they have a good bond. I was sent this infographic which discusses how carers can create a good bond with their patients. The infographic makes simple suggestions – things like good communication and listening to the patient – but they seem like sensible ideas to me.
