A recent blog post from Providentia Marketing entitled, "How to Keep Your Caregivers Happy: 5 Tips For Boosting Morale" shares a number of helpful suggestions for keeping your home care staff happy, motivated, and thriving in their roles.
Finding great employees can be tough, as we all know, but keeping them engaged and challenged in their work over the long term can be just as difficult.
The more folks can share ideas and learn what works and what doesn't for others in the home care world, the more our industry can thrive and the more value we can bring to our clients, patients, and caregivers.
Here's a short quote from the article, that I feel sums things up nicely:
At the core of every good home care agency are its caregivers. Without them it is impossible to provide high quality medical care to patients and therefore impossible to have a home care agency. That’s why keeping your caregivers happy is of utmost importance.
As usual, I suggest that you read the entire article here, but as a way to pique your interest, here are the bullet points of what is covered:
Safe Staffing Ratios Are Key
Stability Builds Relationships
Setting Clear Expectations Avoids Confusion
Training Opportunities Give Employees Pride In Their Career
Bonus: Recognition For A Job Well Done
