Thank you for posting Martha’s story. Her ability to recognize her mother’s subtle needs is exactly why a care giver’s resume should be secondary to a care giver’s heart.
At Hanson Services, we provide in-home care for adults. We also provide the training and skills one needs to care for an older adult.
But kindness and empathy are as important as physical skills, and have to come from the heart, not a classroom.
Our care is moment-to-moment and one-to-one, based on our client’s needs, mood, energy and personality at that particular time.
This has been our philosophy from the beginning. We don’t use the term “person-centered.” We just call it “care.”
