One aspect of a well-seasoned in-home nurse is that they are consistently patient in almost any situation. For example, when it comes to elder care, it is important to allow the person being cared for to maintain independence in their daily lives. This can be difficult, as some tasks that may take a few minutes for you will likely take much longer for them. Thus, staying patient and allowing them to work at their pace can ensure they remain independent and comfortable with their caregiver.
A nurse who is able to clearly and understandably communicate with the ones they are caring for is another positive trait to look for. When they show that they are willing to listen, they ensure that all their patients’ needs are consistently met. The nurse’s communication ability is also important because they are likely going to be the first ones to observe and identify a developing illness and must accurately explain every detail to your loved ones doctor or physician.
Another positive aspect of maintaining your loved one’s independence, as well as for a home care nurse, is when they are able to be flexible over the course of their care. Your elder may often want to change plans in their routine from one day to the next, which may be frustrating to some. However, part of a nurse’s experience comes from being able to work through these irregularities and continue keeping your loved one’s ability to be independent and self-reliant.
