In-home nursing care for individuals with Alzheimer’s and Dementia is often the best choice for families who want to keep their loved ones close. Unfortunately, dementia is not an uncommon disease. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, one in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia and every 66 seconds someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s.
Sometimes we all need a little extra help with our day-to-day life. Whether due to aging, physical ailments, or both, everyone needs assistance with even the most basic of tasks now and then.And since there’s no place like home, in-home caretakers such as Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) can be invaluable in ensuring that you or a loved one is both comfortable and well taken care of.
Each stage of life brings its own challenges and, for seniors, aging can be lonely. Even if you are fully capable of taking care of yourself, living alone can be a detriment to your health.In 2012, the results of a six-year study by the University of California’s Department of Medicine showed that loneliness was a predictor of functional decline, and even death, for individuals older than 60 years of age in the United States. The reality is that, as we age, we simply cannot do the same things that we used to do, which is why in-home companion care can be an ideal solution to resolve both loneliness and physical restrictions.
Watching your loved ones age can be extremely difficult and stressful. Many people struggle with deciding what’s best for their family members. Choosing among a nursing home, an independent living facility, or in-home caregivers is a decision that’s not always so easy to make. A Home Health Aide (HHA) service is certainly worth considering because it allows your loved one to stay home in a familiar environment and it’s often more affordable than many people realize.
A little extra care and attention is sometimes all we need to live life more comfortably. At 24/7 Nursing Care we focus on the wellbeing of each individual by providing him or her with nursing and companion services that are tailored to their needs. Our in-home Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) services are skilled nurses who care for people under the direct supervision of doctors or Registered Nurses (RNs). They provide basic care for people who are ill, injured, convalescent or disabled.
Statistics show that most people at some point in their lives will have surgery. A study by the National Center for Health Statistics found that there are around 50 million outpatient procedures and 46 million inpatient procedures each year. Undergoing a surgical procedure, whether planned or unplanned, can be a stressful experience. To help ease the worry and aid individuals during recuperation, we offer in-home nursing care for post-surgery recovery.
Mental illness affects millions of people in the United States each year. While some individuals experience disorders and still live an average day-to-day life, certain illnesses make it difficult, if not impossible, to lead a normal lifestyle.
In more serious circumstances, the individual may need short-term or long-term hospitalization or be recommended to stay in mental health facility. However, in-home psychiatric health care may also be an option.
When you or a loved one needs support from a medical professional due to aging, dementia, post-surgery or another circumstance, you want the very best care available. While there are advantages to medical facilities, nursing homes and retirement facilities, they aren’t always the best option. Each family and individual’s needs are unique. Luckily, there are a variety of in-home Registered Nurse options available to families. Home nurse care for elderly patients is often times the ideal situation for loved ones.
Supporting your loved ones as they age can be emotional and stressful. You want the best care possible for them, but the right choice is not always clear. For many families, senior home health care services are a preferred option. Rather than moving the individual to an unfamiliar setting, or one that feels too clinical, in-home care providers can come to your house instead.
