Thoughts on Covid’s Impact

Recently, research began coming out about the terrible impact isolation has on seniors health. Just in time for the world to be hit with being home and isolated to varying degrees. Foe some at home means being with several family members or friends. For some it has meant being home alone with limited community sources or family/friends able to come into your home. Or maybe you are in a facility of some type and you are limited to seeing just the staff (in person).It is so important for us all to have social interaction in our life for physical and mental wellbeing. New technologies and some no so new are trying to help us all adjust in healthy ways to this new way of living. Such as phones, shopping apps, house party app, zoom etc. We are also learning new words like Social distancing, window visits, zooming, tele- health visits, and new normal.We are all being forced to look at our world a little if not a lot, differently. We are integrating old school types of communicating and going about our day. Writing letters, checking in with neighbors, sewing (masks), making bread and soup for ourselves and others. Some are learning new hobbies and expanding interests. Music, pets, board games are all being used to help us maintain the balance in physical and mental health we all need!Handwritten letters are being passed between seniors in facilities and school children. What a wonderful connection for both generations. This reminds me of stories from senior clients who persevered WW2 and made personal sacrifices for the wellbeing of fellow citizens and the country. There was a recent picture in a paper of a 1918 photo of people at a baseball stadium. They were all wearing cotton masks! How did they phase into regular life again? Somehow they did and we will also. The seniors I have known who have already lived through many changes and adversaries, have the best wisdom and patience.Reach out to one another. You will find you get more back than you ever gave!Editors Note: This article was submitted by Paula McCormick, MSW, LSW.Paula is Care Manager with Elder Quest and may be reached at 970-985-5950 or email at elderquestgj@gmail.com

Qualities and Skills of a Successful Caregiver

Caregiving is a growing career option for many Americans looking for rewarding work. It gives people a sense of purpose and lets you see your works benefits in real-time. While there are many perks to working as a career, many qualities and skills set successful caregivers apart.Qualities of a Successful CaregiverA few innate qualities most caregivers tend to have that help them have a successful career include compassion, empathy, dependability, and drive. CompassionOne of the top qualities we look for in caregivers is compassion. Compassionate people go out of their way to physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually support others. Someone with compassion is also sensitive to others needs and knows how to make people feel comfortable in any situation. As a caregiver, you must put your clients needs first and do whats required to ensure they receive the proper quality care they deserve. EmpathyMany challenges come with aging; as a caregiver, its important to practice empathy when working with clients. There may be days when clients get frustrated with themselves for not being able to do something they once did, and they may take that frustration out on you. Try not to take reactions personally. Instead, put yourself in your clients shoes and let them know you understand where theyre coming from and that its okay to feel emotional about aging. Sometimes, that small act of empathy is enough to turn the situation around.DependabilityAs a caregiver, you must be dependable. You are responsible for showing up to shifts on time and performing all tasks to the best of your ability. Clients rely on their caregivers to help with daily tasks such as showering, dressing, grooming, and meal preparation. If you are not reliable, your clients likely wont feel comfortable with you caring for them and may refrain from asking for further assistance when they need it. However, showing up on time and providing quality care builds respect and trust so your clients can feel safe and comfortable in their homes. DriveCaregiving is a unique job in that youre responsible for your work without direct supervision from a manager. When youre working, its only you and your client. You need to have drive and take the initiative to complete your work. You should observe your client and step up and offer assistance without waiting for them to ask or for a care coordinator to ask you. Skills of a Successful CaregiverQualities of a successful caregiver are often something people have or not. The skills of a successful caregiver are learnable and tend to improve as you develop in your role. A few essential skills of a successful caregiver include time management, leadership, and communication skills.Time Management One of the benefits of working as a caregiver is the flexibility in scheduling. However, if you have a flexible schedule with non-traditional work hours, you must have good time management skills to ensure you are at each clients home on time. You also need to utilize your time management skills while working with clients. If you only have a few hours with each client, you should understand how to prioritize tasks and get everything completed in the given time frame. LeadershipLeadership is about your ability to influence others. As a caregiver, part of your job is helping seniors make healthy and safe choices. If you have good leadership skills, youll have an easier time convincing clients to eat more nutritious foods, be more active, or ask for help if they need it. Good leadership skills also help you build trust with your clients because theyll see you as an expert in their care and feel confident in your ability to help them. Communication Communication is about how you share and receive information. As a caregiver, you need to communicate with your clients effectively so they understand your role in their life. Strong communication skills also play an essential role in building relationships. The better you communicate, the easier itll be to connect and make a connection with your clients. Getting Started with Visiting Angels At Visiting Angels Grand Junction, were always looking for compassionate, dedicated caregivers to join our team. Were hiring part-time and full-time positions to help seniors in Grand Junction and the surrounding communities. A job with Visiting Angels comes with competitive hourly pay, paid training, flexible scheduling, bonus opportunities, and one-on-one client interactions. If youre interested in starting your caregiving journey, send us your application online or call 970-254-8888.

Understanding PTSD in Seniors

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) develops in approximately 1 in 3 people who go through serious trauma. This can include anything from the death of a loved one, military combat, car accidents, illness or injury, natural disasters, a disease diagnosis or other events that may have significant physical or psychological impact.Many people experience negative feelings after experiencing a traumatic event. However, when these negative feelings last for a long period of time, cause someone to relive the trauma or have daily impacts, that person could be suffering from PTSD. For seniors, its not uncommon for symptoms of PTSD to be a result of traumatic events that happened earlier in their lives or to occur after a major fall, a heart attack or other serious health events.For seniors with PTSD, symptoms can include flashbacks, depression or anger, fear, self-isolation, outbursts or trouble sleeping. These symptoms can be difficult to identify or mistaken for other age-related conditions.There are treatment options for seniors experiencing PTSD. It is recommended that anyone experiencing PTSD symptoms consult their physician to establish a plan of treatment to successfully manage symptoms.Lifestyle changes for some, keeping active and engaged can help manage PTSD symptoms. This can include anything from starting a physician-approved exercise regimen, volunteering, getting involved in community activities, or finding ways to increase mental stimulation.Medicine there are medications that can help seniors with PTSD. For seniors that are prescribed medication, its important to schedule regular check-ins with a physician and to be open about the positive and negative effects of medications.Therapy individual or group therapy can be a great resource for seniors with PTSD. There are multiple types of therapy, with different goals and methods for each. Cognitive Processing Therapy, Prolonged Exposure therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, and Stress Inoculation are types of therapy specifically created to help with PTSD symptoms. Seniors that are interested in starting therapy should talk to their doctor about the type of program that might work for them.Sharing experiences talking about the traumatic event that caused the PTSD can also bring relief and foster connections that may be beneficial for a seniors physical and mental health. This can be a conversation with a friend or joining a support group its important for people to share in an environment where they feel supported and understood. It can be difficult for someone with PTSD to talk about their experiences, but for many this may be a necessary step for managing symptoms.One on One Care is essential Options such as home care has shown to be uplifting to seniors and their families. The individualized care plans created for the clients consider physical goals as well as emotional and psychological needs. Care plans for PTSD clients should include activities such as transportation to community events and appointments, support physician-prescribed exercise regimens, provide companionship and help families stay connected to the care team and connect their families through use of technology. Elevating the human spirit is the focus of the care.ReferencesMayo Clinic. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Web. 2018.Psychiatric Times. PTSD in Late Life: Special Issues.
