Why Did We Move?
In addition to making room for our growing home health care business, Home Instead Minneapolis CAREGivers, our clients and their families will now be able to comfortably attend training sessions and other important gatherings. For instance, our CARE: Changing Aging through Research and EducationSM program is a unique training program that works to change the way people live with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. It involves:
- Capturing Life’s JourneySM – Gathering past stories and experiences helps the CAREGiver give comfort and customized care; all the while honoring who the senior was earlier in life.
- Techniques to Manage Behavior – CAREGivers use techniques such as giving simple choices and redirecting, allowing the senior to remain calm and safe at home.
- Encouraging Engagement – Engaging seniors throughout the day builds self-esteem, enhances physical strength and reduces behaviors that need to be managed. Using techniques and activities, CAREGivers focus on the seniors’ mind, body and soul.
- Supporting the Family – CAREGivers understand the struggles and challenges that accompany caring for a loved one. They are trained to work closely with the family and have open communication, which results in quality care for the senior.
Home Instead Minneapolis CAREGivers trained in the CARE program have a passion and desire to work with Alzheimer’s or dementia clients. Our new facility accommodates ongoing classroom training and testing they receive prior to caring for a senior with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. CAREGivers also receive multi-phased safety and caregiving education programs, so our new training room will be busy and well used so that you can rest assured your loved one is with a trusted, well-qualified, home health care professional!
