Live In Care Kent: How To Choose The Right Carer For You
If you have chosen to have live in care Kent for yourself, or for a loved one, then you’ve made a great decision – it’s a wonderful way to keep people in their own homes for as long as possible, and to give them as much independence as possible.
There are some things to take into account before choosing the live in care Kent worker who will be with you or your family member for the foreseeable future. Each person is an individual, just as each carer is, and so it’s important that likes, dislikes, and personalities in general all work well together. Matching with someone who shares interests will make your time together work much more smoothly, and will give you someone to talk to, who understands exactly what you want to talk about. As well as having similar interests, it is important to choose a carer who is able to work with your level of disability or illness. Do they, for example, have specialist training in your area of health? If this is required, then it is important to have the right person caring with you, otherwise, no matter how well you both get on, if they can’t provide the help you need, it’s not going to work out in the end.
If you have pets, it’s essential that you find live in care Kent carer who will also be able to live with your animals. They may even need to walk your dog, clear out your cat’s litter tray, change the water in your fish tank, or any number of other tasks associated with having a pet. If they are not comfortable or confident doing that, then it won’t be a good match. Other considerations to take into account include whether or not you need your carer to be able to drive, whether they can make the food you like, and whether you would prefer a male or a female carer (particularly important if they need to bathe you).
