Skilled Nursing Agency Serving Poway, CA, Firstat Nursing Services, Publishes 3 Ways Home Nursing Services Help Keep Seniors Active and Healthy in the New Year
Dec 24, 2014 /prREACH/ -- Firstat Nursing Services, a Poway home health and in home care agency publishes 3 tips to help keep seniors healthy and active with home nursing in 2015.
“Home health care is a safe way to provide health care for seniors who want to stay in their own homes. Living independently helps a senior citizen maintain their sense of value and happiness, but it can become more and more difficult as a person ages,” said Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services in San Diego, CA.
“Having a home nursing service come regularly to perform well being checks and help an elderly person perform regular duties allows the older person to feel better about themselves, and gives their families the peace of mind of knowing their loved ones are cared for,” continued Goodrich. Here are 3 ways home nursing helps keep seniors active and healthy.
Medical Management – Health issues increase with age, but a senior’s ability to manage their own medicine routine is sometimes compromised by memory problems. Regular visits by a home nursing service will make sure that the elderly patient is taking their proper medications in a timely manner. They can also perform routine checkups and take care of minor wounds whenever necessary.
Safety and Security – Elderly people often have trouble with balance. Some of that difficulty comes from simple aging, and a home health care provider can make sure that performing simple tasks around the home are done safely by either doing it themselves or helping the senior get things done around the house. Many accidents seniors have in their own homes are a result of attempting to cook or perform basic hygiene tasks themselves. They are at a great risk of falls, burns or other serious injuries when left alone. A visiting nurse will give them the assistance to be secure and happy in their own homes.
Resolving Loneliness with a Poway In Home Skilled Nursing Agency – Being separated from society and family is a major problem for many senior citizens. They can’t get around like they used to, and travel to social events and family gatherings is difficult to do alone.
A home health care provider offers nursing services that will let seniors enjoy all of the community activities they have always enjoyed in a safe and healthy way. A home nurse can make sure that the senior citizen travels to and from get-togethers with friends and family safely by providing the transportation they need, and the physical assistance in getting in and out of locations. Nursing services also help out by getting seniors to necessary appointments such as physician visits, eye doctor appointments, legal appointments and even offer help with chore related travel when necessary.
