Cathy

Nurse Assistant,

"Chief Motivator"

Cathy is our go-to person when someone is down or refuses to get up and out. She'll start them with a quick trip to the store, then a full shopping trip. Soon enough, she has them excited about a dinner date or show tickets at a local dinner theatre. For seniors struggling with isolation, Cathy's focus on engaging with old friends or making new friends is entertaining and motivating.

She's also a superb cook, involving her clients in organizing shopping trips and making special meals. One day while cleaning, Cathy found $1400 forgotten by a client under his mattress. Because of experiences like this that demonstrate her trustworthy, loving character, deep friendships develop between Cathy and her clients.

How Cura Elevates the Profession of Care

At Cura, we invest in our professionals, health aids, and personal care assistants. All caregivers receive paid professional training on a variety of topics including:
 

• Person Centered Care and Service
• Effective Communication
• Bathing and Personal Hygiene
• Exercise and Appropriate Activities

Staff are trained in Understanding, Deescalating, and Redirecting Challenging Behaviors. We also provide specialized training on client-specific needs such as Alzheimer's disease and memory loss, diabetes, joint replacement and post-surgery/chronic care.  
 
Monitoring and Supervision:
All home visits are GPS-verified using electronic monitoring, tracking, and verification of on-time service. Every member of our care team is carefully screened via references, abuse registry, and criminal/drug and driving background checks.
 
Care partners receive ongoing supervision to ensure that each care partner is
individually and appropriately matched to the individual receiving care. Care
Managers (supervisors) maintain regular communication with individuals receiving
care, their families, friends, and the medical team as appropriate.
 
At Cura for Care, our care partners are on a career path: insured, bonded, fairly and
compensated. They receive employee benefits including financial support for
continuing education.
