Who is a Home Carer?
A home care worker, also known as a professional home carer, is a trained individual who provides care for someone, typically an older adult, in their own home. The length of care required can vary greatly, with some individuals needing only a short visit of 30 minutes per day, while others may require visits of two hours at a time, and others may need three one hour visits throughout the day. Each situation is unique and can be customized to meet the specific needs of the individual receiving care.
What are some of the responsibilities of a Home Carer?
Home carers have a variety of tasks that they may be responsible for, as each client has different needs. However, some common tasks include:
- Providing personal care such as assisting with bathing, washing hair, managing incontinence, and dressing. Some clients may also require help with moving or gentle exercise.
- Performing light housekeeping tasks such as changing bed linens, making beds, cleaning the kitchen and bathroom, ironing, and preparing meals.
- Reminding clients to take their medication as prescribed.
- Running errands for clients, such as picking up prescriptions, returning library books, mailing letters, or shopping for groceries or clothes. A home carer may accompany the client on these errands or complete them while traveling to and from the client’s home.
- Accompanying clients on walks to the park or shopping, and spending time with them doing their favorite hobbies such as crosswords or looking at old photographs.
- Providing respite care for family carers, and building a positive relationship with them.
- Helping those with dementia on a short-term or long-term basis, completing the above-mentioned tasks.
- Providing companionship, being positive, and engaging in conversation, and listening to their stories.
