Developing New Skills in 2019

By Home Care Heroes Team • January 25, 2019

With the new year under way, now is the perfect time to enhance a skill you have been looking to build on or to help someone else do the same. At Home Care Heroes, both Members and Heroes build skills when working together; such skills include communication, independence, social and physical. Meeting new people and experiencing new activities is the first step in building news skills and later building self-confidence.

As parents or guardians to someone who is looking to enhance their skills, finding someone to partner with them and to build a companionship is the perfect first step. Building confidence and getting acquired in the social world is hard to do when you lack skills that eventually hinder you from wanting to step out and explore. At Home Care Heroes, our members are accompanied by a multitude of heroes that obtain a vast variety of skills that can suit each individual member's needs.

Sometimes, the skill we all lack most is confidence. Confidence is not a skill anyone is born with, but it is a skill that we can all acquire as we build on our other character traits and skills. While too much confidence can be a negative thing, the right amount of confidence can get us very far. A little bit of confidence gives us the courage that we need to try new things and meet new people. It allows us to build a trust with ourselves, with others and with situations. 

However, to build confidence we must build on other skills first. Because in reality, mastering a skill such as how to overcome being shy in public is something that can boost our self confidence and encourage us to master another skill. Once these skills start to build upon each other, you have a wide variety of capabilities that motivate you to be more social and to get out and about without having any fear. 

All of this being said, sometimes it takes a friend or a loved one to encourage you to want to build on your skills. Heroes can do almost everything. Many of our Heroes love to go on missions with Members that revolve around:

  • Going to the beach
  • Taking a walk
  • Learning how to swim
  • Cleaning your home
  • Going to the theatre
  • Attending a public event
  • Learning how to use public transportation

This list could go on and on and on.  At Home Care Heroes, we are passionate about helping our Members to become the most confident that they can be and to acquire new skills that will help them to take on life. It is our goal to provide the resources necessary to let each individual member grow into their greatest potential. Building new skills and creating new companionships make the perfect pairing for building self-confidence and taking on the world.
