Personal Safety for Case Managers, Home Health Caregivers and Hospice Caregivers
This holistic training empowers case managers and home health caregivers, home health care workers and hospice care givers with practical strategies necessary to enhance their personal safety at the office, while working in the field and during activities of daily living. Home health caregivers and home healthcare workers face the same challenges of other lone workers.
Although challenges may arise while visiting with client at their homes, facilities or clinics, the reality is your field based staff may encounter a wide variety of other threats or problems traveling to and from members homes for which they also need to be prepared.
These could range from something as seemingly mundane as a breakdown on rural roads out of cell phone range, to attempted armed robbery or carjacking. Having a game plan tucked away in our back pocket for a variety of “What If” scenarios allows us be more proactive when there is very little time to think the problem through.
We refer to our holistic approach as the “Safety Mindset” the foundation of which is intuitive and actionable.
