Key Factors to Keep in Mind
Those in the business of providing Home Care Services need to be mindful of some critical issues and concerns that will be key factors in the minds of potential customers. Unless they are aware of those issues they may very well fall short of expectations and fail to gain the confidence of the clients but they might also, unwittingly, be participating in spreading a negative image of their services to a wider community.
Understanding Your Customer
It is of critical importance to have a comprehensive and insightful understanding of the critical factors that will influence the customer. This will inform the thinking of the provider in shaping and constructing the type and level of service it is intended to provide in the first instance and so put in place something for which there are an identifiable need and demand. Providing an identifiable need does not necessarily equate with the assumption that there is or will be a demand for it. The latter will depend on other variables, such as price, convenience, standards, that may be the deciding factor is availing of the service. When it comes to the provision of Home Care Services there are more personal and perhaps, more intimate considerations that need to be factored into consideration.
The Human Side of Enterprise
Some of these considerations might include a situation where an elderly person cannot be properly or safely managed in their own home and may very well be reluctant to leave that home and go into a new and, to them, a threatening environment. They cherish their independence; they cherish their family and feel they are being cut off; they feel they will no longer have their own space and things around them; they cannot have their cat or dog with them; they will not see their family members that often. The reality is, of course, they are not clients or customers. They are fathers, mothers, grandmothers, brothers, sisters, soldiers, teachers, firemen, doctors, farmers. They are real live people it is important that the innate dignity of the human person is always respected.
