What You Need To Know About Caregivers In Central Ohio
Personal care, in-home care, respite care, assisted living care, and all other forms of senior care have one thing in common: they are all provided by caregivers. But who are the caregivers of Central Ohio and how can they help you?
Caregivers Are Healthcare Workers, But They Are Not Medical Professionals.
Who do you think of when you see the term, “medical professional”? Doctors? Nurses? Well, that makes sense. Doctors and registered nurses are both medical professionals and both are imperative to healthcare both for seniors, for younger people living with disabilities, and anybody else. But while doctors can diagnose problems and refer specialists, and nurses can take blood samples and dress wounds, they don’t actually provide most of the care that seniors receive.
Caregivers do most of the work of actually caring for seniors and younger people living with disabilities. Caregivers help seniors everyday in senior care facilities, such as senior living communities. Caregivers visit clients in their Central Ohio homes and help them live their lives every day and, in some cases, multiple times a day. And caregivers are the ones who accompany and escort seniors to appointments with medical professionals. But just who are these caregivers?
Caregivers Are Non-medical Healthcare Workers With Their Own Qualifications.
Just because they don’t have medical degrees and they haven’t gone to nursing school doesn’t mean that caregivers don’t have their own set of standards to meet. At Always Best Care of North Columbus, all our caregivers are bonded, insured, and have undergone a comprehensive training process. Crucially, all our caregivers are employees of Always Best Care of North Columbus, not freelancers or independent contractors. This means they have to have passed our stringent pre-employment background check and reference verification. We provide our caregivers with extensive training upon hiring as well as ongoing training to help them keep up with the evolving demands of caregiving.
