Using simple explanations and clear examples, BEING A CAREGIVER IN A HOME SETTING teaches all aspects of caring for individuals in the home. It explains how to accomplish the daily tasks involved in home care; emphasizes the importance of both efficiency and a caring and sensitive attitude towards patients and family members; and helps home health aides understand their roles in the home health care system. All activities are geared toward encouraging and creating an atmosphere of patient safety and independence, while helping caregivers build confidence.
