You rely on your direct caregivers to provide ADLs and iADLs for your patients.
It sounds like a simple job but it isn’t.
Non-licensed caregivers spend many hours every day with your patients. They are the eyes and ears of your licensed staff.
Your aides are responsible for:
- Providing accurate, professional, and compassionate care
- Identifying and reporting changes in patient condition
- Proper documentation
- Infection control and maintaining a safe, clean home environment
- Maintaining professional boundaries
- Promoting patient safety and fostering independence.
- Understanding personal, cultural, and ethnic issues in caregiving and communication.
- Understanding and providing appropriate nutrition and hydration; including special diets
- Understanding common disease processes
- Measuring, recording, and reporting vital signs
- Performing personal care, toileting, grooming and range of motion
- Thinking critically and reacting appropriately in emergencies while working alone in the home.
Your non-licensed caregivers have a lot of responsibilities!
