The Family Care to a child and to an elder are almost similar. One needs to understand their likes & dislikes, praise them, act according to their wish as much as possible and above all have patience to deal with. Elders needs empathy not sympathy.
The Family Care executives are properly trained enough to provide proper care and comfort to the elders in absence of their family members. Their job is to visit the elder on regular basis, support them in their routine activities, create routine activities for them, providing them positive atmosphere, create regular outings – health support etc.
As each and every elder mindset will be different – the care executive will be competent to cope up with them and also co-ordinate with family members about the regular updates of the elder whom he-she is serving.
