Matching a Caregiver to the Person's Needs

It is important to match the caregiver's personality and skills to the needs of the client. For example, if the person who needs a caregiver has a broken hip, then a caregiver who has previous training taking care of someone with a broken hip will be more familiar with the situation.

A person who likes to visit will enjoy a friendly caregiver who will chat and provide companionship. A person who needs a lot of house cleaning will appreciate a caregiver who likes to polish the furniture and straighten up the house.

Matching the skills and interests of the caregiver with the client's needs will create a harmonious situation.
