Hands-on care involves physically touching the person, assisting with meals, getting up and down (for disabled people), making beds, cleaning, prompting for medication, shopping, bathing, changing, or feeding. Companionship care is a matter of being there, making conversation, and keeping a person feeling comfortable.
No it doesn't. Shampoo and style is personal care. But it's up to each individual provider/caregiver if they feel comfortable doing it.
Hi I Am New To This Site And Just Purchased A 3 Month Membership. I Am Looking For Help For My Father. I Reached Out To 6 Or 7 People That I Am Interested In And Not One Responded. Is This Normal?
I'm a caregiver. I respond to all emails sent to me. I feel like I'm advertising for myself and if I can't help maybe I know someone who can.
I don't know about other caregivers but I update my own account information. I also check my messages at least daily. Otherwise I don't think that care.com will know.
