Nurse & Caregiver Training
Why is there a need for nurse and caregiver training?
Caring for the elderly or those with disabilities can be an extremely rewarding experience. However, with nurses and caregivers working alone in the home setting, it can also be stressful as caregivers are often faced with new challenges and responsibilities.
Having a strong support system and relevant training, nurses and caregivers can have the confidence to provide care at home. Patients and their loved ones will also have a peace of mind, knowing that they will receive appropriate care at home.
Having worked with a number of nurses and caregivers, our physiotherapists are equipped to guide and train your nurses and caregivers to continue care for your loved ones in the comfort of your home.
Our physiotherapists will tailor the training according to your needs, and ensure that your nurses and caregivers continue to provide quality care, by checking in with them after training. These are some of the areas of training provided by our physiotherapists:
Mobility / walking
Exercises – contracture prevention
Falls prevention – home environment assessment and modification, equipment advice
Respiratory care – chest percussion, suctioning
We will bring quality standards and care to your home. Contact our team today to arrange for training for your home care team.
Thrive Healthcare will help you manage the challenges in home care that you might encounter, because we provide:
Quality Follow-Up Care
We work closely with the doctors and the home care team to set goals and report the patient’s progress.
Work as a Team
We ensure a close integration with your processes, supporting your direction for providing comfort for your patient’s progress.
Our physiotherapists will train your nurses and caregivers on the steps towards recovery, and how to operate medical equipment where necessary.
How does it work?
1. Connect us to your patient
We will visit the patient, analyse their medical records, and optimise the environment for their rehabilitation.
2. Work closely together to provide care for your patient
We will discuss a plan with the home care team, and explore ways that we can work together to provide the patients with quality care.
3. See Results
See consistency in an elevated standard of care, with the patient’s comfort as a top priority.
You do not have to worry that your patients are receiving consistent, and quality care when we work together.
