Caregivers With Advanced Training
Your Home Team Care’s Advanced Care training program ensures that our staff aligns with our mission to provide safe compassionate care that fosters happiness and peace of mind.
We require special training programs that exceed the training requirements for a home care organization to make every day a great day for your loved one in their home.
Some of our Advanced Care learning programs are;
Nutritional needs for the elderly and disabled adult – Because our services include grocery shopping and meal preparation, our caregivers have a good knowledge base to best identify healthy foods and prepare attractive and nutritious meals. Many elders are on special diets that are crucial to their health and well-being. Our nutritional training program provides caregivers the knowledge base to understand the importance of compliance with these diets and to make them enjoyable for the client.
Your Home Home Team Care’s Advanced Care Nutrition program is supported by our Registered Dietitian who is also available to visit our clients in their home for nutritional consultations,
Verbal Interaction and Therapeutic Companionship – Studies show that Elders who experience loneliness are predisposed to depression and other serious health problems. Sometimes an elder can be lonely even when another person is present in the home if there is a lack of interaction and stimulation. Your Home Team Care caregivers learn techniques to engage, create and explore interests that bring meaning to an elder’s life every day. Our caregivers establish caring and respectful interactions that maintain our client’s self-esteem and dignity and bring joy to their life.

Proper nutrition is an important and often neglected detriment to health for the elderly and disabled. Malnutrition is often underdiagnosed. Many elders have a poor appetite or have difficulty preparing nutritional meals. The memory-impaired are especially prone to nutritional deficiencies and feeding problems that can be worrisome. Poor nutrition can result in;
- Poor skin integrity or wound healing
- Weak immune system
- Muscle weakness
- Loss of bone mass
- Increased risk of hospitalization
- Poor adherence or lack of understanding of diabetes or other special diets can have a significant impact on health.
To help your loved one maintain the best health possible, Your Home Team Care offers a nutritional assessment in your home by an experienced Registered Nutritionist. If your elder has a poor appetite, is losing weight, has trouble preparing meals, isn’t adhering to a special diet, or any other concerns, call us at 856-332-5000 to schedule a nutritional assessment.
