Who Can Benefit From Home Care Services?
When most people think of home care, they visualize a “patient” recovering from an accident or surgery. Home care is so much more! Consider the following circumstances that many seniors face:
Isolation can become a serious problem as we age, leading to other problems such as depression and lack of appetite. It is important for seniors to remain physically and mentally active, to meet with friends and family. A home care provider can help by providing encouragement and support so that seniors can remain engaged in their lives.
Parkinson’s affects client differently depending on individual symptoms, stage and the unique characteristics of the individuals. By working with our clients to understand their individuals needs along with their goals and objectives, we can support their ability to continue to live active lives.
This can include collaboration with physicians, including neurologists or movement disorder specialist, along with therapists and other specialists to make ensure we are adjusting the plan accordingly.
Alzheimer’s and Dementia Support
Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia can be very challenging for seniors and their family. The support of our service focuses on the safety and security of our clients but beyond that it is really about encouraging active engagement is the things in life that are enjoyable.
This starts with genuine respect. Understanding that our clients have a history of experience and great accomplishment. We look to honor that rich history and engage in the core talents and interests of our clients.
Geriatric Care Management
Broad Street Home Care works with a variety of Geriatric Care Managers, Elder Care Managers and Patient Advocates. Because of our Home Nursing capabilities, combined with our direct Home Care Services, we work in close collaboration with these professionals to provide a seamless service.
Fall Prevention and Mobility Issues
Falls are the leading cause of injuries for seniors. Fear of falling can actually exacerbate the risk as seniors’ refrain from physical activity which reduces strength and balance.
With home care support, seniors can remain active with mobility assistance. In addition, as part of recovery from surgery or an injury, any Physical therapy can be augmented by a Home care personal assistant. They can support regimens put in place by a Physical Therapist.
Many older adults take many medications throughout the day. It is important that these medications are organized and sorted on a periodic basis. Nurse supervisors can assist in managing medication. A home care personal assistant can then help ensure that medications are never skipped, and that they’re taken with or without food, with lots of water, or in any other way prescribed.
Diabetes, CHF and COPD Support
A majority of seniors suffer from one or more chronic conditions whether it be Diabetes, Congestive Heart Failure or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Not only can it be debilitating, but it can also lead to frequent hospitalization.
With appropriate home care support in place, symptoms can be managed that allow our clients to not only feel healthier but to continue to maintain active lifestyles.
Broad Street, in collaboration with our clients’ physicians, can help manage and monitor symptoms of these chronic conditions in the context of our clients’ daily lives.
