Managing Client Expectations Realistically & Respectfully


Managing expectations is a process of helping people know how to be right and when to be satisfied. In hospice and home care settings, patients and their families are often under tremendous stress. People may not be at their best. How can you manage unrealistic expectations in a respectful way?


For caregivers, the personal rewards of providing health care services are closely linked to the quality of relationships developed with clients and their families. How can you create a positive experience for every client, even when time is limited? Learn to strategically focus on two things that almost every person wants and understand the key driver of client satisfaction. Attend this session to learn and appreciate how you make a difference, even in brief relationships.
