At Happier at Home, we are honored to have an incredible team of professional, compassionate, and dedicated caregivers who serve our clients day in and day out. One of our favorite quotes by John Rohn is, “One person caring about another represents life’s greatest value.” Our caregivers are more than employees and provide more than just a visit to a client. Our caregivers go above and beyond daily for our clients, and we are proud to share what makes us and our team unique:
1. We keep the same caregiver with the same client for each visit!
This provides for continuity of home care. Your loved one will develop the sense of security that comes with a trusting relationship. As the caregiver gets to know your loved one, the caregiver will be able to anticipate their needs. As a friendship develops, both our client and the caregiver will look forward to visits. We also do our very best to assign the same caregiver for backup care in the case of vacation time or sick calls.
2. We have a great employee retention rate!
We believe our caregivers enjoy their work and know that we value them. They like the fact that they keep their assignment with the same client because it enables them to form relationships. They have a consistent schedule, enabling them to live a full life outside of work.
3. We empower our caregivers.
Our caregivers are the eyes, ears, and heart of what we do. They are empowered to advocate for our clients because we trust their instincts. We encourage our caregivers to monitor our client’s health and well-being, and to report back to us if they notice something out of character for their client, so that we can communicate and coordinate with the family to make sure information is shared, concerns are heard, and we make a plan to ensure the safety and well-being of our clients.
4. We encourage open and honest communication.
Our caregivers have open lines of communication to us—whether it is by phone call, text or email, we are on-call 24/7 for our clients, and for our team of caregivers working around the clock to serve seniors in our community.
5. Desire to help others.
Our caregivers truly have a passion for caring. We look for and hire mature-minded caregivers who have real-life experiences in caring for their own loved ones and have a desire to continue to help others. They often tell us that they benefit from knowing they have made a difference in the lives of others.
We are devoted to providing the most professional, reliable and friendly caregivers in the industry. We are honored to have such a wonderful team of caregivers who serve seniors in our community. We are grateful for the work our caregivers do day in and day out for our clients.
