A-1 Home Care has been in business since 1991, and we have heard about the frustration from some of the caregivers about difficulties in communication they experience. We want to help shed some light on the art of communication in these circumstances. First and foremost, try to listen carefully. Listening is often more important than speaking when it comes to communication, and it cannot be more true when you are providing care for someone. We understand that there may be multiple tasks to complete while caregiving, but try to set those aside and strictly speak to the care recipient so you are not distracted. Finally, seniors and elderly might be more grouchy than other people because they are experiencing different ailments and health conditions, so don’t argue with them to avoid further irritation.
Despite some frustration in communication, caregiving is a rewarding experience because you can make a difference in someone else’s life. A-1 Home Care has provided thousands of clients with satisfying in home care service, and many caregivers are still working with us because of they simply enjoy helping seniors. We cover the areas of Malibu, Hollywood, Westwood, Studio City, Burbank, Pasadena, San Marino, Whittier, Torrance, Cerritos, Newport Beach, Tustin, Costa Mesa, and many other communities in all of Los Angeles and Orange County. With both 24 hour live-in and hourly live-out jobs available, we can be flexible to your schedule and location.
