A GCM component offers support and education to your PDHC paraprofessional workers, giving them more skills, including professional one-on-one problem solving expertise. Adding a GCM can insure that paraprofessional home care staff do not feel like they are alone and can better work as a supported team member.
The GCM is a better in site trainer than the usual PDHC staff. They visit GCM once a week instead of the 90-day visit required by some states of home care agency professionals
They can train, orient, supervise and support in-home caregivers on each monitoring visit to the client.
If you do not have a paraprofessional training program or need it updated the GCM perfect expert to help with your training program
The GCM can offer on site training to the caregiver when reviewing client charting and talking paraprofessionals, one to one on site about their clients week.
They can find problems before they become crisis. For example if the client has been staying in bed for a few days and it was never reported, they can pick that up before it turns into a crisis or hospitalization, because they monitor each week. In addition they reinforce reasons to call them for problems , on each visit and build up the trust in the paraprofessional to follow through.
A GCM visit make caregivers feel they are a part of a team- someone that they can talk to get direction from. On site caregivers feel they are supported when a GCM visits weekly and calls regularly and is there to take their call and concerns about a client’s health or problems.
A GCM does better spot-checking if caregiver is not doing a good job or not even showing up,solve caregiver arguments before crisis, keep clients and families happy through great supervised home care so you are not losing cases.
