Reporting client status and changes to family members and professionals

services_inner

It is difficult for family members to continually monitor the health status of their loved ones if they live far away or work and can’t check in on them. Having a caregiver with the client can ensure that the client has this continual monitoring when they need it.  On a day-to-day basis a caregiver can help ensure:

  • The client avoids falls and accidents
  • The clients take the appropriate medications at the right dosages at the appropriate times
  • The client eats healthy, well-balanced meals
  • The client obtains assistance if they are feeling ill

If the client is not able to do the above, a professional caregiver will recognize this and be able to inform the family members and medical professionals. Caregivers can also help ensure that the client is not feeling stressed or overwhelmed, monitor that they are not sleeping too much and missing meals, and help them avoid gaining or losing a lot of weight due to inactivity or a change in medications.

Some ways that a caregiver can check in with the family and/or medical staff of the client include:  Routinely scheduled phone calls or sending text messages with status updates to the family member or a nurse.
