Firstat Nursing Services, a home nursing and in home care agency serving Kensington San Diego, CA is participating in National Social Wellness Month.
“As we get older, it gets more difficult to get out and be a part of the community,” said Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services in San Diego, CA. “Parents and loved ones that are growing older need help in making the important emotional connections that keep them mentally and emotionally healthy.”
“The stress of losing friends and family ties, the inability to travel or get around the neighborhood or to appointments and meetings make getting older more solitary and lonely, and we can’t always be there to help those we love keep active and involved,” continued Goodrich. Here are three ways skilled nursing care can improve the social wellness of the senior citizens in people's lives.
Staying In Touch with Family – A skilled nurse will make sure that the elderly in their care get out to family engagements, parties, and events to keep them in close contact with the ones they love the most. When a skilled nurse is there to help out, an elderly parent or loved one never has to feel isolated from children, grandchildren, or other nearby relatives. The nurse will help the elderly patient dress and get to and from the home safely as well as provide transportation to and from the parties and gatherings.
Keeping Up With Friendships – Along with the occasional family get-togethers, a skilled nurse can help elderly clients meet up with close friends who are nearby on a regular basis so they have daily or weekly involvement that builds the social relationships that are important to them.
When there are long distance friendships involved, a skilled nurse can help make arrangements for meeting when the opportunity for local travel comes up. Since the elderly are often less technologically inclined than others in their lives, a skilled nurse can also assist them in long distance communication via email, Skype, or messengers so friends and family do not seem so far away.
Many communities have regular senior events that loved ones can miss out on if they can’t get out of the house on their own. When a skilled nurse comes to help the senior citizen, they can help them get out and about their neighborhood to talk with neighbors and get to community events.
Keeping Up with Personal Care – A part of social well being is maintaining good hygiene so the senior feels comfortable and isn’t self-conscious about meeting with others. A home health care professional will also help the senior keep up with cleanliness, get dressed properly, and feel good about themselves so they feel good about meeting others. When seniors feel good about their appearance, they also feel good about themselves. That alone helps alleviate depression and medical issues that can occur from a lack of hygiene.
A home health care nurse will also monitor health and vital signs to be sure that the elderly client is physically well. When necessary they will communicate with the patient’s physician and make any necessary adjustments to daily schedules and get them to appointments to keep them healthy.
