Temporary Carer Qualities

THE QUALITIES OF A TEMPORARY CARER

When it comes to making the decision to get a temporary 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 carer.

WHAT QUALITIES SHOULD A GOOD TEMPORARY 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, especially if they are caring for someone with more complex care needs. This is a very important role so it is crucial that we recruit the very best and qualified carers that are suitable for the position. The temporary 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 associated with challenging behaviour, complex health needs or additional disabilities. We strongly believe some of the many aspects a good temporary carer should have is being respectful, patient, reliable and qualified.

All of our temporary private 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 carers will treat you with the respect that you deserve, and also ensure this is maintained throughout your placement.

An exceptional temporary carer is guaranteed to be patient. Particularly if you are suffering from a medical condition, 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 carer is patient and calm in any situation that may arise.

At Guardian Carers, we believe that the perfect temporary carer should be reliable. As time goes on, and your age or medical condition can progress, then you may start need to start relying on your carer for more important tasks, for example, taking you to your doctor’s appointment, or managing your medication. Your personal, private temporary carer will have to ensure that every duty is completed and they are done in the correct manner, and timely fashion.

Another important quality that the temporary carer should have is the ability to be observant. If you have a medical condition, you or your loved one may not notice specific symptoms becoming more and more frequent. However, is it up to your specialised private temporary home carer to notice this such as this, and act accordingly. Along with being observant, it is also important that your temporary carer must be compassionate. If it comes to a time when you or your loved one start to deteriorate, it can be a very emotional and difficult time, but having a carer there to support you and be there to cheer you up on your bad days, is very important.

Our temporary private carers are also a source of emotional support 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 set period of time, you may also find that you gradually require more and more help, which could be a sign that you need a carer who can be with you full time.
