We Are Caregivers
The traditional dictionary definition for caregiver;
1. An individual, such as a physician, nurse, or social worker, who assists in the identification, prevention, or treatment of an illness or disability.
2. An individual, such as a parent, foster parent, or head of a household, who attends to the needs of a child or dependent adult.
I believe that working for a home health care organization which exists for the caring of the patient makes every employee, from janitor to medical records clerk, from bookkeeper to the Chief Executive Officer, a caregiver. Our job functions are for the betterment of the patient.
Accordingly, I advocate adding a number 3 to the above;
3. An individual, such as an employee or independent contractor, who works for a home health care organization.
