Care: Human Tenderness

“Care is a state in which something does matter; it is the source of human tenderness." - Rollo May, psychologist

If care is the source of human tenderness, let’s make ourselves, whether a friend, a family member or a care provider, be the source of care. Let’s extend human tenderness to our loved one who is facing an old age, disability, or sickness.

Question of the Day

Why are you working in the home health care industry? Can you tell a specific story of your experience in any healthcare situation or setting?

The following story is an example:

“I’ve always loved the health care industry, but my interest in nursing really started when I volunteered at a neighborhood clinic. I knew our department capabilities were amazing but that the staff could practice better patient care. So I worked with management to come up with a strategy that increased our patient satisfaction rates by 25% in a year. It was great to be able to contribute positively to an industry I feel so passionate about, and to help promote a clinic I really believed in.”

Acute and Chronic Pain: How to Improve the Quality of Care

According to Nancy Wells, et al., acute pain, such as post-operative pain, subsides as healing takes place while chronic pain is persistent and is subdivided into cancer-related pain and nonmalignant pain, such as arthritis, low-back pain, and peripheral neuropathy.
