Increasing Caregiver Retention #3 - Relieve Loneliness

With home care turnover being too high there are changes agencies can make to reduce turnover.

 

Relieve loneliness

 

Perhaps the biggest step home care agencies can take to reduce turnover is to foster a team environment. This is admittedly more difficult in a home care setting, as there isn’t a centralized breakroom or nursing station where friendships are cultivated. However, if caregivers don’t feel part of a team, leaving an agency is even easier.

 

Agency leaders can begin to build a team atmosphere and relieve loneliness by:

 

  • Scheduling regular team meetings and events.
  • Using technology, like a caregiver app, to strike up conversations and host digital events between caregivers.
