Firstat Nursing Services, a home health and in home care agency serving Coronado, CA is participating in National Family Stories Month. “Caregivers help senior citizens age with grace and dignity. Family members who give the older members of the family assistance as they age deserve the respect and help from their family members and friends,” said Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services in San Diego, CA. “Even when caring for a family member nearby is possible, it is a huge responsibility to provide all areas of care to an elderly loved one,” continued Goodrich. Here are three ways professional home nursing care can benefit senior citizens.
Aging in Place – According to the Caregiver Action Network, most elderly adults prefer to live in their own homes as they age. That means that most of the care that they need as they get older has to be handled by friends, family, relatives, or professional caregivers. Even though it seems like an act of kindness to bring an elderly loved one into another family member’s home, it can drastically reduce the freedom and sense of self-respect senior citizens have for themselves. Living with a son, daughter or other family member may be helpful to caregivers, but it can be a big contributor toward depression in the elderly loved one. A home nurse who is trained to take care of the health and hygiene needs of older loved ones for them can make sure senior citizens gets the proper meals they need, give them bathing assistance and even do menial chores to keep senior citizens healthy and in their own homes.
Help with Emergency Needs – It is wonderful if a caregiver is a member of the elderly person’s family. Having someone they know be with them in all situations can give the elderly person stability and a feeling of security. While being with a loved one at emergency hospital visits, during doctor’s visits and hospitalization situations is helpful, a professional home health care provider can also assist in making sure their elderly loved one gets to appointments on time, keep track of vital medical information between appointments and report to the senior citizen’s physician to make sure the older person is kept in the best possible health, and limit the need for hospital stays or emergency situations.
In Home Skilled Nursing Coronado Takes the Stress Off of Families – Full time senior care has a profound effect on all members of the family. It puts a strain on marriages, takes time away from young children in the home, and can leave the principle caregiver feeling drained. Having a home health care provider make regular visits can take the stress out of the situation by giving a family caregiver a break from the hectic routine of full-time care.
