A single touch can mean so much.
Our caregivers are exceptionally empathetic, loving individuals who trained for this work because they truly care about other people. Most of them have taken care of mothers, grandmothers, fathers, aunts, uncles in their own family, and they know from experience what the family is going through.
They also know how much a senior, who may be feeling a little frightened, disoriented, or having trouble getting around, desperately needs care, tenderness, and a gentle disposition. Over and over again our home health aides seem to become a member of our clients’ families.
