Proxy Caregivers play a very important role in the well-being and health of a patient who
are in their personal home or in a community residential setting. As we know, family members
are usually the primary caregiver who takes charge of their loved ones’ health. However, they
are human too and they need rest. Taking a break every now and then prevents burn out is
critical to their survival.
Proxy Care Givers are trained to perform health maintenance activities, including
medication administration, infection control, documentation, communication skills and resident
safety. The proxy caregiver is an unlicensed person who has been trained by a health care
professional. The proxy caregiver must give a return demonstration and be checked off for the
particular skill. For your convenience, Good Nursing and Medical Training will come on site to
your facility and do the training.
GNMT will provide training for proxy caregivers in accordance to the rules and
regulations set forth by the Department of Community Health (DCH) and the Healthcare Facility
Regulations (HFR). The Training will provide the students with the skills needed to perform daily
health maintenance activities and medication to stable residents.
