Here at Home Caring, we appreciate that support is not a one-size-fits-all practice. Whether you are looking for care for you or your loved ones, it’s important that you find someone that is the perfect fit, that doesn’t just provide help with the essentials, but has support on a more deep-rooted level. Culturally, we are all different, and if you are concerned that you or your loved one is going to feel isolated while going through the aged care process, this can be further compounded if they are from a different country, or may not be able to communicate properly in their native language. We provide numerous support workers that speak different languages, making it an easier process for you or your loved ones who hail from a different culture. Our Ghanaian NDIS support workers are here for you or your loved ones in whatever capacity you need.
What to expect from our Ghanaian support workers
If you are looking for a mental health support worker, support worker, or an aged care support worker, we can help you with a Ghanaian care support worker to meet you or your loved one’s needs. We provide a significant number of services, not just to meet the basic needs of the individual, but to ensure that they have their needs met in a cultural capacity.
When it comes to finding a home care support worker, it’s not just about getting someone who can complete basic duties, if your loved one has come from Ghana and hasn’t settled before needing healthcare support, our Ghanaian support workers can ensure that your loved one doesn’t feel as isolated in an alien setting. It is never easy, but this is why our Ghanaian home care support workers and our social support services can provide that all-important help to make sure your loved one or yourself feels properly supported.
We appreciate that Ghana is a country with 52 different languages and hundreds of dialects, not just English. This is why our Ghanaian support workers work hard to emphasize the cultural values of Ghana as well. If your loved one is deep-rooted in the traditional values of Ghana, we understand that the value of speaking to older people requires extra effort. Our Ghanaian support workers realised the importance of pleasantries and treating older people with more respect, for example, not gesturing with the left hand when talking to an older person. It’s important that these little cultural cues are recognised, as this can help build a level of support between the support worker and your loved one.
What will a Ghanaian aged care support worker do?
Our Ghanaian support workers provide all-important support to you and your loved one on two key levels, linguistically and culturally, but they are trained to provide services in a home environment or an aged care facility. If you or your loved one is looking to get support in an aged care facility or at home, our Ghanaian support workers can assist with a number of different tasks. This consists of domestic tasks, nutritional needs, and specialist palliative care.
It is also important to note that our support workers offer companionship and emotional support. We appreciate that support workers can be there for the basics, that offer little else. As Ghana is a country of many different cultures and holidays, it is important for you or your loved one to experience public holidays with someone who understands them, but is also looking to celebrate than with someone like-minded. For example, the Feast of the Sacrifice, Eidul-Adha, taking place in July, or Farmer’s Day in December are important holidays in the Ghanaian cultural calendar. When an individual is far away from everything they know culturally, that emotional support provided by our Ghanaian support workers can be everything to you or your loved one.
Live-in Ghanaian social support services
We don’t just provide aged care as and when is required, but we can also provide around-the-clock services. Some people prefer to have a carer with them on a 24/7 basis, and our Ghanaian support workers can help with many different aspects of a Ghanaian’s daily routine:
- Hygiene support, like dressing and bathing.
- Mobility support.
- Help with medication.
- Cooking meals. For example, popular Ghanaian dishes like banku and tilapia and kelewele.
- Companionship and emotional support.
We cannot underestimate the importance of a live-in support worker. If you or your loved one are looking for a Ghanaian support worker, we can ensure this makes a difference to you or your loved one’s quality of life.
