Our Well-Being Approach
Well-being Approach to Home Care Services At RedBud Home Care, we believe that person’s value and worth should not be connected to their ability to access a specific kind of memory. Anyone living with dementia should be respected as a complete person and honored as an individual. It is important not to look forward with fear, but to embrace each and every moment in the present as a gift.
Truly knowing and learning how to best communicate with the person with dementia is essential in supporting activities that nurture a sense of well being. A sense of well being is what makes life enjoyable for everyone, and this does not change with a dementia diagnosis. Many of the negative behaviors we might associate with advanced dementia – anger, wandering, anxiety, distress and helplessness – can be greatly decreased and alleviated by fostering a sense of well being.
Why RedBud Home Care Services
Being a small, family run agency, RedBud is fortunate enough to get to know and work closely with each of our caregivers. We employ a variety of caregivers ranging from young nursing students and certified nurse’s assistants (CNAs) to more mature and experienced caregivers. Due to this variety, RedBud is able to match you or your family member with a great caregiver that suits your/their needs and personality.
About Our Caregivers
RedBud caregivers are licensed through The Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) to perform personal assistance services. This means we can help with light housekeeping, meal preparation, medication reminders, transportation for errands and doctor’s appointments, as well as with toileting, brief changing, showers/baths and bed baths.
Our caregivers also assist with day to day hygiene such as brushing teeth, doing make-up and hair, and applying lotion. In order to ensure continuity of care as well as the appropriate caregiver for your needs, RedBud requires a 4 hour minimum.
Before caregivers are scheduled for their initial interview, we check their qualifications to see if they are a Certified Nursing Assistant or have at least a year of direct care experience with the elderly. During their interview, we rank their training and prior experience in all the specific areas they may working with us – bathing, transferring, cooking, medication reminders, toiling, dementia care.
In addition to meeting basic criteria, we also look for caregivers that show a genuine interest in the elderly and are passionate about their work. Since our company has a well being approach to caregiving, we seek out caregivers who have interests that can help support our clients overall quality of life.
