Caregiving can be a truly rewarding career. At the same time, the responsibility for someone else’s personal care needs is a responsibility that can also be challenging. That’s one reason Help at Home created a program, called HealthyMATCH. One of the goals of the program is to help caregivers with the support of “a village”, making sure they don’t feel alone in the responsibility.
According to Help at Home caregiver, Grace, she “knows that she is not alone in the job” because she has access to a virtual team of nurses and social workers to rely on for questions and concerns. Another aspect of the program is that caregivers, like Grace, can also significantly contribute to the clients’ overall health and wellbeing by doing their part to help track data tied to Social Determinants of Health. This can help identify trends and insights that help their clients safe, healthy and at home, and out of the hospital or nursing home.
Caregivers act as an extra set of eyes and ears to help the team create action plans that help clients remain in their homes to have more Great Days.
Latia, another Help at Home caregiver feels more confident in her role with a team to support her. “I would suggest the program as it really helps you give your client the best care.” HealthyMATCH nurses and social workers adds another resource to give the extra help to make sure their clients stay happy and healthy.
