Senior health care assistants are the people who provide the necessary support and care to the residents of senior health facilities. These trained professionals are indispensable to care centers like Senior Health Care Solutions. Without their cheerful, helpful presence, such facilities could not provide the necessary care for their residents.
At Senior Health Care Solutions, our health care assistants have two general duties: to provide care to residents and to help build a sense of community within our facilities. Our staff can do the job if you or a loved one needs the care we provide at Senior Health Care Solutions. Learn more about a senior health care assistant’s role below.
Senior Health Care Assistant Responsibilities
The two primary responsibilities of a senior health care assistant are to provide care and help build a community that is safe and respectful for every resident. To better understand these general duties, it is best to break them down separately and explore how these efforts might help every resident as an individual.
Provide Care to Residents
Many residents that come to Senior Health Care Solutions need specialized attention, and we always provide exactly what is needed. If, for example, a resident is staying at one of our skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities, they may be placed on medication they are unfamiliar with. Our senior health care assistants can guide these unfamiliar medications and ensure the recovering resident takes the proper doses.
The care provided by senior health care assistants is not what most people think of when they imagine what health care looks like. Assistants are there to interpret what a resident needs and then help to execute the care plan in the most efficient manner possible. Organizational skills and managing multiple tasks are essential for a senior health care assistant.
Help to Build a Community
When a resident enters a facility run by Senior Health Care Solutions, they step into a community that is there to support and help them recover and live everyday life. This community is built by an entire team, from the administration to the support staff. However, perhaps no one sets the tone for our welcoming community more than our health care assistants.
As the piece of our team that communicates the most with residents, our health care assistants are tasked with offering a bit of brightness every day. In addition to providing medical guidance to our residents, assistants are also supposed to form a bond with each resident on a deeper level. This is a special relationship between the caretaker and resident that we fully encourage and work to develop.
