Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

Watching parents age can be extremely stressful. We want to ensure our loved ones are not only happy as they grow older, but safe. When age related illness or diminished health impacts someone you love, a great solution is a top priority.

Here are three ways in home health care can benefit aging seniors.

Help Managing Self Care     
Seniors suffering with chronic pain often reprioritize self-care, neglecting hygiene and other self-care activities. Hiring an in home health provider is a smart way to ensure mom or dad has the help they need to successfully navigate self-care, such as bathing and dressing safely.   

Competent Medical Assistance         
Whether its help administering difficult care, or simply remembering to take prescriptions, in home care offers peace of mind. Reputable providers are happy to create a schedule that works on your time, whether it’s a few hours or full time care.

Encourage Safe Independence  
An aging loved one may not have the skills necessary to do things they enjoy, causing depression and unhappiness. A friendly caregiver gives them the security they need, building confidence and encouraging safe independence.

Tips for Diabetes Month – Home Health Agencies Poway

Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

Firstat Nursing Services, a Poway Home Health Agency supports National Diabetes Month by publishing smart tips for seniors. “Managing diabetes requires some planning and a lot of assistance. Having a professional caregiver visit regularly can be of great help to a senior citizen living with the disease,” said Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services.

Here’s how home health care can assist elderly individuals dealing with diabetes.

Assistance on Your Schedule-When people begin a home health care regimen for themselves or for an elderly loved one, the first thing they will usually do is meet with the caregiver to determine the best schedule for visiting. Some choose to have a health care nurse check in daily, some weekly and some even prefer live-in care for constant support.

Activities of Daily Living-Depending on the senior citizen’s needs, a health care provider can help manage diabetes by making sure medications are taken properly. A home health care provider can evaluate eating habits and the safety of food preparation in the home. When needed, the caregiver may even assist in the actual preparation of the foods for each meal.

Expert Medical Assistance-Trained caregivers can monitor blood sugar levels after meals, and keep in contact with a physician. Health care providers are trained to watch out for complications from diabetes, perform routine in-home monitoring of vital signs and inspect client’s feet and hands to maintain optimal health.

Skilled Nursing Care Can Help, Homecare San Diego

Saturday, October 28th, 2017

When parents and adult children live miles away from one another, providing day-to-day care may be impossible. Professional skilled nursing agencies offer solutions, helping family members ensure loved ones stay safe, happy and independent. Here are three ways skilled nursing care can help.

Someone There When You Can’t Be - Living miles away from an aging parent or loved one makes it hard to provide the daily attention and care a family member needs. Hiring a skilled nurse, to be there when you can’t, creates peace of mind that a loved one is safe and happy.

Assistance With Activities of Daily Living (ADL) - Seniors who need ongoing support with daily washing, dressing and grooming can get the help they need, safely and securely. Regular assistance, even for a few hours each day builds independence, preserving dignity and quality of life.

Complicated Medical Help - Seniors who need help managing medicinal care find compassion with a skilled nurse. Whether it’s helping with injections, or providing transportation, a skilled nurse delivers medical expertise on demand when it’s needed most.
