Firstat Nursing Services, a San Diego home care and home health agency shares “3 Ways Home Health Care Can Encourage Family Wellness and Togetherness for Seniors”.
Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services in San Diego, CA said, “Keeping the family together and teaching new generations to appreciate the family unit are primary concerns for most people. May is family wellness month, a designation created to help people find new ways to connect with loved ones and ensure a healthier lifestyle.” Here are three ways a home health provider can encourage that family wellness and togetherness for seniors.
Keeping Seniors Happy, Engaged and Active – A San Diego home care service will provide personnel that are well trained in providing quality physical and mental care to keep elderly family members healthy throughout the year. The ability to stay in their own homes safely helps seniors feel good about themselves while giving their families the peace of mind of knowing they are safe and taken care of. Home health care nurses will develop and oversee a program of activity fitting their patient’s individual needs and abilities. They can also give seniors someone to talk to who will listen to their stories while providing stimulating conversation.
Home Health Care Services Help Seniors with Hygiene and other Physical Needs – During regular visits a home health care provider will make sure seniors are getting the proper nutrition, signing them up for local services such as meals on wheels, or creating well-balanced meals and packing them for the senior to use later. Families can also arrange a more intensive care provider who is with the elderly family member all day, and in more extensive cases 24 hours per day. In that case fresh meals can be prepared as needed at any time of the day.
Home Nursing Keeps Families Connected – A home health care provider can make sure family members always have access to their elderly loved ones. They can also help provide the transportation and assistance in getting seniors to local family outings, and even aide in travel arrangements for longer distance gatherings when possible.
A home care provider will work with the elderly person’s physician to make sure that all medical needs are met while outside the home, as well as always monitoring vital statistics at regular visits. This function can be one of the most important things a home health care provider can offer. Isolation and feeling cut off from friends and family is a major cause of senior citizen depression and loss of vitality.
