Housekeeper carer qualities

THE QUALITIES OF A HOUSEKEEPER-CARER

When it comes to making the decision to get a housekeeper-carer in the home for your loved one, you need to be sure that your personal carer can provide you with the highest quality of care. Guardian Carers has been in the industry for over a decade, and during this time period we know exactly what qualities to expect from a housekeeper-carer.

WHAT QUALITIES SHOULD A GOOD HOUSEKEEPER-CARER HAVE?

When we hire our experienced temporary private carers, there are some important qualities we look for in order to fulfil the role to an exceptional standard, as they will be performing duties of both personal care and housekeeping tasks. This is a very important role so it is crucial that we recruit the very best and qualified housekeeper-careers that are suitable for the position. The housekeeper-carer must have experience in order to provide fulfil this role and provide you with additional support if you or a loved one require any needs. We strongly believe some of the many aspects a good housekeeper-carer should have is being respectful, patient, reliable and qualified.

All of our private housekeeper-carers must be understandable and respectful to you and your needs. You may find yourself not being able to do everything that you used to be capable of doing, and therefore people may start to treat you differently, or at times, can come across as patronising. At Guardian Carers, we ensure that all of our housekeeper-carers will treat you with the respect that you deserve, and also ensure this is maintained throughout your placement.

An exceptional housekeeper-carer is guaranteed to be patient. It can be frustrating at times when everyday and easy tasks are taking longer to complete than usual. Therefore it is hugely important that your private housekeeper-carer is patient and calm in any situation that may arise.

At Guardian Carers, we believe that the perfect housekeeper-carer should be reliable. As time goes on, the client may need to start relying on your carer for more important tasks, for example, taking you to your doctor’s appointment or maintaining household cleanliness. Your personal, private housekeeper-carer will have to ensure that every duty is completed and they are done in the correct manner, and timely fashion.

Our private housekeeper-carers are also a source of emotional support, companionship and friendship, so no matter what your situation is, or what you and your family are going through, you can have full confidence in knowing that you have someone standing by your side and offering a helping hand.

As you or your loved ones needs can change and evolve over time, the care can also evolve with you. Therefore, while you may have started with someone popping in for a few times a week, you may also find that you gradually require more and more help, which could be a sign that you need a housekeeper-carer who can be with you full time.
