3 Qualities to Look for in a Caretaker

July 30, 2018

At some point in everyone's lives, they rely on another person to care for them and provide for them. As a loved one of an elderly person or someone with a special need, it can be difficult to find the right person to care for them when you're unable to. Whatever your specific need, it's important to find someone you can count on. So here is a list of qualities we at Easterseals Alaska suggest you look for in a caretaker in order to make your relationship a success.

They Listen

A good caretaker is someone who listens to your loved one and gets to know them as a person rather than a client. They hear what your loved one needs or is simply someone for them to talk to. Easterseals Alaska believes caretakers are someone who can connect with your loved one and offer the support that they need.

They Care

At Easterseals Alaska we believe that caring for others is a calling. A good caretaker is someone who cares about what they do and the impact that they have. They take pride in their work, and it shows in how they interact with your loved one and yourself. They understand that every person is an individual, with their own preferences and style.

They're Trustworthy

At Easterseals trust isn’t just a word, it’s a way of life.  All of our services and relationships are based on trust and understanding. We know that you rely on us to care for your loved one with kindness and compassion.  We take this responsibility seriously.

As your loved one ages, they are more likely to injure themselves during their daily activities. Statistics show that more than 50% of falls for the elderly occur at home, therefore it's important to have someone there who will care for them in an attentive and loving manner. Individuals with a special need will find comfort in having a caring Easterseals professional there to assist them with whatever may come their way. Providing qualified, and professional caregivers is what we’ve been doing for almost 75 years.  Let us assist you in finding the perfect caregiver for your unique needs.
