Caregiving is a uniquely human experience, and at one point or another, most of us will have some experience with it. As we age, our needs change. Whether you care for a loved one or client, your experience in caregiving is unique to you; no two experiences will be the same.
What to Expect as a Caregiver
When you become a caregiver, you should expect the unexpected. Your caregiver experience ultimately depends on the needs of your client. While your day-to-day routine will stay mostly consistent, as your loved one or client ages, their needs will change. If they’re diagnosed with conditions like Alzheimer’s or Dementia, their needs will increase dramatically. You’ll need to be well versed in proper communication, compassion, empathy, patience and other caregiving skills so your client gets the care they need.
What’s most important to remember about caregiving is that you’re not alone. It can be easy to feel overwhelmed and alone in your duties; however, there are support groups and systems in place to help you. Home care agencies, like JEVS Care at Home, provide support and resources for it’s caregivers.
