How to age well

Growing old can bring challenges, both for the person who’s ageing and for their family. It can be frustrating for our loved ones because they can’t do everything they used to and feel like they’re losing their independence. At the same time, it might be worrying for their family as they might not be able to be there whenever their loved ones need them.

CAREGiver Recognition

CAREGiver Recognition! This time Anna, a fantastic CAREGiver who joined us in Sept 2018. Anna was matched with a male client who is living with dementia and as his journey has progressed, he has had difficulty sleeping at night. Anna sits up with her client on overnight visits to enable his wife, who is his main carer to get some rest. Anna does this at least 3 times a week and has always taken this in her stride. Anna has a wonderful, calming and reassuring nature and this helps her client to appear at ease and comfortable and this makes all the difference to him and is also a huge relief to his wife. She has peace of mind that his needs are met during the night and he is being well cared for. Anna is so conscientious in her role as a CAREGiver and her only thought during her visits is for her client’s needs. She is patient, kind, considerate and treats her client with dignity, respect and compassion. Anna, you have embraced the role of CAREGiver, taken the lead and shared your heart. You have demonstrated outstanding dedication to CAREGiving and embody the culture and values of Home Instead. We are so proud to have you as part of our team and thank you for making such a difference. Well done and congratulations Anna! Here she is with Luisa and Trish and Sarah from Home Instead National Office

CAREGiver Recognition

It seems we celebrate outstanding CAREGiving every day, such is the wonderful care our team provide day after day. All our CAREGivers are outstanding but we are recognising Carolyn, a long standing CAREGiver. Carolyn has been a Home Instead CAREGiver for nearly 4 years and had never done anything similar in her working capacity before. Carolyn has fond memories of supporting a dear male client living alone, where she cooked him breakfast every day she visited and knew exactly how he liked his bacon and eggs. She supported him until he was transferred to a hospice where she visited him in her own time. There have been a number of other clients that she has supported where her positive impact has made a huge difference. Recently, Carolyn really ventured outside of her comfort zone. She was introduced to a lady shortly before she started to deteriorate and her needs increased dramatically to end of life care. We didn’t know if Carolyn would continue to support her because of the unique situation but there was absolutely no hesitation and Carolyn was in fact willing and keen to step up to the challenge. Carolyn was absolutely amazing with the client. We are so proud of you for your achievement and well deserved recognition. Well done and congratulations Carolyn.
