El Cajon, CA 91911 – Firstat Nursing Services, an El Cajon home health and in home skilled nursing agency publishes “Three Ways Skilled Nursing Can Help Senior Citizens Stay Connected with Friends and Family.”
“Isolation is one of the most common causes of severe depression in senior citizens. Many older individuals become cut off by illness, decreases in physical function and even distance,” said Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services in San Diego, CA.
“While staying in their own home is one of the best ways to ensure good mental health in aging individuals, it is also a major influence in the separation that can occur. A skilled nurse who visits their elderly clients regularly can keep seniors connected and increase their social involvement to resolve loneliness,” continued Goodrich.
Here are 3 ways skilled nursing can help senior citizens stay connected to family and friends.
Home Nurses Can Arrange Regular Outings – Part of the regular services that a home health care nurse can provide is getting their patients out of the house. Just getting out into the fresh air has many advantages, and helps elderly people feel more in contact with their surroundings. A skilled nurse can make sure that regular visits to the outdoor area around the home are safe and activities are at a level the senior citizen is capable of.
Taking short walks just in the general area of the home gives a senior healthy exercise that is good for their body and helps them strengthen weak muscles. Best of all, getting outside allows seniors to communicate with neighborhood friends. For seniors who are not ambulatory, a skilled nurse can still arrange for their patient to get fresh air and meet with friends by providing wheelchair transportation. Sunshine and fresh air are important to anyone’s physical health and well-being.
Seniors Can Attend Social Functions with the Help of a Skilled Nurse – As seniors get older, they often miss out on regular functions in the community that they previously enjoyed. That loss can create a deep emotional isolation. A visit from a home health care specialist automatically gives seniors some outside interaction with another person, but even better, arrangements can be made easily with the visiting nurse to help elderly clients get to the meetings and community events they love.
Family Reunions are Possible with the Help of an El Cajon In Home Skilled Nurse – Skilled nursing is often associated with providing medical checks and keeping home-bound patients healthy. That is a large part of their value, but a skilled nurse can also make many social arrangements that allow elderly individuals to stay in touch with family.
Along with simply keeping older people in contact with family via phone and other forms of modern communication that can be troublesome for seniors, a skilled nurse can also arrange transportation to family events like reunions.
A home nursing service can be arranged for a few hours a day or 24-hour care. Having a skilled nurse available helps alleviate many of the fears elderly men have about getting older such as loss of muscle and strength, falling and memory loss. A skilled nurse will also help patients remember proper medication and make sure they are following prescribed treatment and rehabilitation schedules.
