Firstat Nursing Services, a San Diego home health and skilled nursing agency shares “3 ways homecare can help seniors live healthier, safer lives”.
Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services says, “Living safe for seniors is more than just avoiding problem areas and hazardous activities. Elderly people face dangers and safety hazards at almost every turn in daily life”.
Here are three ways homecare can help seniors live healthier, safer lives.
Home Health and Home Nursing Provides Active Listening and Problem Solving for Senior Citizens – Families can be impatient when dealing with senior family members at times. Having someone to listen and help deal with difficulties is an important part of maintaining a healthy attitude with age. A San Diego Home Health specialist will listen to senior needs, helping them discover safe ways to get things done, as well as stay healthy by discussing potential problems with a family physician.
Relief from Caregiver Duties – When a senior lives with family members, there is often a misconception that they do not need outside help. Providing full time care is a strenuous job, and regular breaks ensure seniors get the attention they deserve while caregivers remain fresh and relaxed. A home care provider can schedule weekly or daily visits, allowing caregivers to get outside work done, or help with other aspects of senior health.
Bringing Patients and Physicians Together – By remaining at home, independent and self-reliant, seniors experience improved self-esteem. Home care professionals make it possible for an elderly individual to stay in the home they love – a proven advantage when it comes to senior healthcare. Modern technology enables portable equipment and the age of the house call is returning. Some physicians actually prefer to visit with seniors at home, performing tests and sending out home care professionals to conduct regular checkups.
By taking the medical show on the road, seniors receive more attention, more often than they would if they had to arrange transportation and physical assists to travel to the doctor’s office. A home care provider can provide those services, ensuring the home environment is safe, and seniors receive proper nutrition and hygiene required for healthy living. This makes seniors feel better and puts family at ease knowing their loved one is well cared for and happy.
