Good communication with the family of a senior client is an essential part of any caregiver business!

communication with family

Caregiver communication with the family of a senior client who requires care services, is the second most important part of your caregiver position, the first is the quality care that you provide for the senior.

The family is always curious to know how the care is going on a daily basis, and if the caregiver business services are being provided as promised.

Good communication is extremely valuable, and provides so much comfort for the family. A great way to stay in touch is virtually, especially if your senior client does not live in close proximity to their family.

  • It is very important that  your computer connection is stable
  • Check that your audio is working and that you do not get any feedback or echo sounds.
  • Test the connection before the call, and set up a simple, clean (uncluttered) background, and where your senior clients will be most comfortable. 
  • Set up the video chat at least 30 mins to 1 hour before your scheduled meeting.
  • Enjoy the happiness that surrounds you on the call-you made this happen!:)
