"Who is a carer"

hope this is of some interest to some of you kind people out there.
Many of us find ourselfs in a possistion of being carers for someone.We give our care willingly because
we love those nearest & dearest to us, or it could
be our friend/neighbour."does it matter" NO.
Lets use the word "Clients".
For some of us it takes up most of our time,it may
also affect every aspect of our lifes.work,family life & free time, depending on the level of care required.
Your client may be self sufficient in many ways,
but unable to cope with the tasks of shopping/cleaning.In more extreme situations your client may require basic needs, such as Bathing/feeding & cooking.In these circumstances you would be required to provide constant care.
Short term care,High level.
A client recovering from an opperation /major illness,
will require a high level of care.
initially care plan is advisable outlining your clients needs gain advise from clients GP.
E.G....Activity=Assessment.
Mobility=Walking stick/wheelchair,ect.
Washing/bathing/dressing.
Special diets.Medication.
Remember your aim should be to care without depriving
the client of his/her independence & dignity.
Now important advice for the carer,you have needs too.By Maintaining your own physical & Emotional health,as you will be proned to illnesses under stress.Dont be afraid to accept help,not just from
family & friends but social services & other voluntary organisations/societies.
Why not gain your first aid certifcate a must for all of us weather a carer or not.
ST Johns Ambulance is highly valued for giving care & support in the community as well as offering first aid courses,contact your local ST Johns Ambulance office listed in phone directory.
I wont bore you any more but i feel i must end by saying this to you all
Take pride & satisfaction in the fact that your client is receiving the best care you can provide.

    Can you do me a favour? Could you work on your layout. It is such a shame that your ops are written with such sincerity that people may ne rating low because of this. Please work on the layout and thank you for the advice. SCALAY.

    Hi, sorry bout the low rating, your op seemed good but I kept getting lost. Spacing it out a bit and explaining the assessment=activity (or whatever it was) bits a bit better (I didn't get what you were talking about) would improve this. Please leave a message in my GB if you edit this and I'll be happy to re-read and re-rate. Love, Corinne.
