We encourage you to tune in to this fascinating podcast interview of Jeff Salter, CEO of Caring Senior Service. The interview focuses on non-clinical care of the kind provided by Caring Senior Services and it all just went live Tuesday, February 2.
Jeff tells Stan Massey of Transcend that a lot of education is needed to help the general public know a different kind of support is available – and help the healthcare system advocate for nonclinical support.
“Ever since I started our company in 1991, I’ve been really challenged with defining what home care is and helping people understand that there’s this whole different segment that is the non-skilled services or the custodial activities of daily living,” Jeff said. “Things we all take for granted that we just do day in and day out – simple meal preparation can become a challenge, keeping yourself clean, getting a shower, brushing your teeth even can become difficult as you age. And those are all home care things that a caregiver would help provide for an individual who requires that type of assistance.”
The interview gets into some important details about custodial home care that most people, including referrers, rarely if ever think about.
During this conversation, Jeff, points out three areas where change is necessary to increase the role of nonclinical home care – and what this valuable service can offer in return.
