As an elder care service, we stress the import ance of commu nication when caring for seniors. Proper verbal and non-verbal comm unication can improve the com panion ship that you provide. We have collected three tips for you today that will improve your relationship with seniors and the non-profit elder care that you provide for them.
Encourage engagement: When elders respond to questions that you ask them, it lets you know that they understand the message that you are conveying to them. It helps you become a better elderly caregiver when you actively ask open-ended questions and allows the elder to feel better about their own communication methods.
Re-state main points: Many great writers or speakers will include conclusions into their presentations or literature to help readers remember the key points. When serving as a volunteer caregiver for the elderly, you can improve your communication and increase the ideas remembered by simply re-stating them.
