Because chronic disease management is a daily endeavor, we believe that it is essential to offer daily content for the home health workers and family caregivers who bear so much responsibility. Teaching points are repeated - regularly, frequently, and for years. No one learns much from single or infrequent exposures to information. TheCareGivingLife asks caregivers to revisit specific disease management lessons repeatedly, and over time, to perpetually review and reinforce learning.
A Job Without a Supervisor
In light of their considerable responsibility, family caregivers and home health workers are in an unusual position: They are almost rarely supervised, or even observed working. This leaves them extremely vulnerable to ad hoc disease management protocol revisions stemming from self-perpetuating and progressively worsening inaccuracies, forgetfulness, or even a desire to improve their performance. Put more simply, left to their own devices for months on end, home health workers and family caregivers don’t have anyone to correct their mistakes. We guard against ‘slippery slope’ patterns of deviation. On a daily basis, Century Tree Content endeavors to get caregivers to recognize that first deviation, and nip it in the bud.
