FC CAREPARTNERS are
dependable, compassionate, and dynamic. As motivated professionals, they enter our program with the hopes of becoming life long learners in the field of home health care.
The mentality of a FamilyCARES! CAREPARTNER is "Always Be Learning." We have an ongoing training program that our CAREPARTNERS voluntarily participate in. CAREPARTNERS earn qualifications after taking exams that are specific to identified disabilities and chronic ailments. We match our clients with CAREPARTNERS that have studied and passed their relevant disability-specific-exams.
HOW IT WORKS:
CAREPARTNERS can be considered for client-matching if they currently hold the required qualification for your particular needs. For example, if you need a CAREPARTNER who is confident in working with an ALS patient, only those who have passed their ALS exam will be considered for matching.
DISABILITIES, CHRONIC ILLNESSES, and REHABILITATION Qualification Exams:
ALS (Lou Gehrig's) Parkinson's Dementia
Alzheimer's Multiple Sclerosis Osteoporosis
Hip Fractures Stroke Cancer
Hypertension (High BP) Heart Disease Cerebral Palsy
Blindness Hearing-Loss Autism
Down Syndrome Anxiety & Depression Glaucoma
WHY DISABILITY-SPECIFIC-CARE IS IMPORTANT:
As you know, we provide non-medical personal care, companionship, and housekeeping services. At FamilyCARES! we believe that it is important for our CAREPARTNERS to be experts on your loved one's disability. When CAREPARTNERS learn about a specific disability/ailment, they approach their clients with an increased level of confidence. When they have an understanding of the cause of systems, CAREPARTNERS support your family member with a knowledge based purpose.
While CAREPARTNERS are not permitted to diagnose or treat illnesses, they are vitally important to your loved one's overall well-being. It is the job of our CAREPARTNERS to notice changes in physical and psychological baselines and to recommend changes to their client's CAREPLAN. When they are trained in disability-specific-services, they become hyper-vigilant towards specific symptoms and understand how to provide extra support in the form of personal care.
Depending on your loved one's disability, they will require our CAREPARTNERS to be trained in supportive technologies. For example, If a bi-pap is part of your loved one's daily care, it is important that your CAREPARTNER knows exactly how it functions.
