Why is a caregiver job description so important?

The importance of written agreements-senior care-wisecaregiving

A caregiver job description provides detailed information about the senior’s daily routines, and what is expected of the caregiver while on duty 

This caregiver job description template can be customized and tailor to specific senior care needs, and provide a clear picture of what the caregiver job expectations will be. The simple act of putting the job requirements in writing lends assurance and clarity for all parties involved. The information gathered in this form will also help to create ease in the first visit with the senior. By having a few key information points the senior will feel a lot more comfortable in this new situation with a new caregiver in their personal space. Keep in mind it takes 2-3 months in order to really get to know a person and how well the new caregiver position will work out. 

Often times one person is left in charge of the seniors care, but in most cases siblings of the person in charge want to be involved, and see what value a hired caregiver will add. Sending a job description to siblings by email is a great way to make them feel involved and on some level a part of the care decisions.
