Get To Know Me

What is It?

The Get to Know Me tool is a customizable and printable form that can be displayed in the home. Home care providers can reference it to learn about the interests, needs, and care preferences of the person receiving care. 

How can it help me?

Developing positive relationships with home care providers can bring comfort and ease of mind to caregivers and people receiving care. The Get to Know Me tool quickly acquaints new and unfamiliar care providers with the abilities, needs, and preferences of the person they are providing care for. This also helps care providers become familiar with a person’s health baseline.
