Working with families is an integral part of home care agencies do. Unlike most other forms of healthcare, their work is done in their clients’ residences and often alongside the 65,000,000 family members, friends, and neighbors who help care for an elderly or disabled person at home.
To help care providers understand what an agency can do for their loved one, the Alliance has produced a series of short, instructional videos with ElderCareSKILLS.org. The videos feature a variety of home health professionals including nurses, therapists, owners, and home care aides answering the most common questions families ask.
Each Monday, we will feature a new video here on the newsfeed. In the first, Geoffrey Abraskin, PT, DPT of Amedisys Home Health discusses the basics of choosing a home care agency:
There are currently nine videos available both at www.thinkhomecare.org/videos, and on the Alliance’s YouTube channel, with additional ones planned. You can also subscribe to ElderCareSKILLS to access these and hundreds of additional videos designed for family caregivers.
