This book is designed to foster quality care to home care
recipients. It is written for companions, home health aides, and
other care givers who deliver non-medical home care. Prieto
provides information, tips, and techniques on personal care
routines as well as additional responsibilities that are often
necessary in this work, including home safety and maintenance, meal
planning, errand running, caring for couples, and making use of
recreational time. Going beyond standard nurses' aide training
manuals, the book focuses on the psycho-social needs of home care
recipients, stressing the need to maintain the house as a home and
sustaining the recipient's way of life throughout caregiving
situations. Prieto stresses interpersonal skills that benefit
recipient and caregiver, creating a systematic, easy-to-follow plan
for delivering quality service and maintaining, or improving,
quality of life.
