Getting started with home care...
The dilemmas of aging and the needs associated with them can be daunting and worrisome. Looking the other way and hoping situations will change is not realistic and can intensify the issues. There is rarely a single strategy when confronting an event like caregiving. You perhaps have planned for it although it may have loomed in the background needing addressing for a while.
Increased mobility and changes in family structure and roles have made it difficult for people to assume responsibility. Smaller families mean fewer caregivers to solve the burden of caregiving. Increases in women in the workplace, divorce and single parent families contribute to the decrease in emotional and economic resources available for necessary support.
You are ten steps ahead of the average person if you have discussed care planning with your family. And you are another ten steps ahead if care planning has been received well. You have accessed professional resources that will provide valuable information and excellence in nursing, i.e. Elder Care At HomeVB.
The challenge to make decisions is upon you and indeed it is a difficult place— however you have recognized the need for professional services. A phone call to Elder Care At HomeVB can give you a sense of relief.
Start with a free visit by a RN
A free visit by an RN can be the beginning of a comforting understanding of how a qualified group of professionals can ease the burden of a tough job, caregiving.
In choosing Elder Care At HomeVB, a second visit with an RN is to be scheduled to complete the assessment, develop a plan of care and design a schedule of care hours.
Senior care assessment addresses these areas of concern:
Health history, medications and nutrition
Personal needs and preferences
Cognition and wellbeing
Risk factors and safety
Strengths and weaknesses
Insurance, legal and financial review
MY PROMISE TO YOU IS TO BE A GUIDE IN YOUR JOURNEY FOR SECURING RESPONSIBLE AND PROFESSIONAL CAREGIVING.
