As a Social Worker, I have always strongly believed in person-centered care, so that is the philosophy of Caring Companions. Person-centered care is a focus on our client’s emotional needs and care preferences, consistent with their lifestyle. For example, a caregiver using a traditional approach might come in and prepare meals for someone who can no longer perform the various and potentially dangerous tasks in a kitchen—from cutting foods to handling hot pans on a stovetop. With the person-centered approach, the first step is finding out if this person used to enjoy cooking for themselves, what their favorite foods are, and where they prefer to eat in their house; their abilities to participate in making a meal can be determined from there. In other words, the caregiver is getting to know the person and not just their limitations due to illness or age.
Perhaps the client can be driven to the grocery store and select the foods they prefer, or they can talk someone through the making of a favorite meal so that both people are participating in the process. This focuses on what this person is currently able to do, not on what they are unable to do. For people who have long enjoyed cooking, this can contribute to a boost in their self-esteem. The simple act of making a meal becomes an engaging, enriching, and empowering experience for the client, rather than a reminder of what they can’t do for themselves.This approach creates the opportunity for a two-way street in the relationship as well. The caregiver is not just giving care to someone, but also learning from him or her. The dynamic shifts and allows both people to have a meaningful and even joyful experience as they learn together.
