Firstat Nursing Services, a home health and in home care agency serving Rancho Bernardo, CA is participating in National Healthy Aging Month.
“With the month of September’s focus on healthy aging, it is a good time to consider the elderly members of our families, and their quality of life. Keeping older loved ones happy and healthy can be difficult when we have busy lives or live far away,” said Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services in San Diego, CA.
“Having a skilled nursing service is a great way to give us peace of mind that our loved ones are being cared for, while offering them the ability to stay independent and live in their own homes as long as they can,” continued Goodrich. Here are three ways having a skilled nurse visit regularly can improve senior lifestyles and help them age healthier.
Keeping Seniors Connected – For most people, it seems like getting older means getting more forgetful and many elderly individuals fear the onset of dementia. Dementia is a serious problem senior citizens face, and can make life dangerous as well. Keeping in touch with friends, loved ones and the community is a great way to keep senior minds healthy and working well.
Getting out to events or social engagements can be difficult for older individuals. If driving is a problem or mobility is an issue, find out if there are local services in the area that assist senior citizens in transportation needs. This can be a very helpful service for getting to doctor appointments, going shopping and other chores as well.
Call the local senior citizen center or community center for information on what each city offers for its elderly residents. A skilled nursing service can also provide needed transportation to important events, family get-togethers, doctor appointments and other social gatherings to keep seniors involved in their social circle.
It’s Never too Late for Seniors to Get Moving – No matter how old people get, and even if they never did anything that could be considered remotely active, it isn’t too late to start and get healthier. Moderate exercise is very important for senior citizens. Light exercises improve balance to avoid falls that can cause serious injuries. For seniors plagued with health issues even mild chair exercises helps improve circulation and sends extra oxygen through the system and to the brain.
When unsure where to start, ask a physician or health care giver for information on safe exercises and helpful tips for senior activities. A home health care provider offers skilled nursing services that can aid senior’s in safe exercise programs, and also offer regular checkups of vital signs with reports to the senior’s physician.
Stay Home with Help from a Skilled Nursing Service – Having the help needed for daily care can give seniors one of the greatest gifts they can receive, the ability to stay in their homes as long as possible. People have strong connections to their homes, and it becomes even more important as a senior citizen ages. Their homes are where all of their memories of family and friends are, and they usually do not want to leave. Having a skilled nursing service come and take care of an elderly person’s needs gives them the freedom and security to remain in the home they love.
