Anticipate Needs & Hazards

Caregivers need to find a balance between being vigilant and attentive. I have found it helps to chat with the client and their family to discuss what assistance is needed, wanted and expected. This helps me know what situations require my help and when it is time to help. At the same time, it can guide me away from being too cautious and interfering with a person's sense of independence.
