What are the Common Complaints of Patients at Home

Many seniors receive care from paid caregivers, resulting in various complaints when receiving care at home.

Some of the most common complaints of patients at home involve:

  • Unreliable caregivers
  • Poor communication with a caregiver
  • Confusion in communication due to having more than a one caregiver
  • Inconsistent quality of care
  • Caregivers with a lack of caregiving training
  • Caregivers who are not punctual or flexible
  • Unaccommodating caregivers
  • Language barriers

Home care involves many aspects, from medication management and personal care to transportation and household chores.

Dementia and other chronic health conditions can make caring for the elderly at home very challenging. If you decide to be a caregiver for an aging family member, it is important to understand that caregiving can be demanding and stressful at times.

Devoted Guardians'
Response to COVID-19

Devoted Guardians is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus, COVID-19, to ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information on the threat of the virus. As you know, this situation continues to develop rapidly as new cases are identified in our communities and our protocols will be adjusted as needed.

While most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a very small percentage of cases become severe and may progress particularly in the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that Devoted Guardians serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
