Who Are the Caregivers


Thank you to Home Healthcare Adaptations for sending us this infographic, “Who Are the Caregivers,”  which highlights who the caregivers are, who they care for, and what care they provide. One note of caution: if I were creating this graphic I would change the section titled, “Characteristics of Good Caregivers” to, “Characteristics of Perfect, or Paid,  Caregivers.” Family caregivers should not be expected to “know intuitively how to treat.” They should not be expected to, “consistently put the patient’s needs ahead of their own.”  They can be expected to do what is fair, reasonable, safe and humane. They should also be expected to have a life of their own that needs tending to.Home Healthcare Adaptations IG v4 Nov_USA
