Firstat Nursing Services, a San Diego homecare and home nursing agency supports Home Care and Hospice Month and shares tips on How Home Health Care Helps Seniors Live Happier Lives.
“Senior citizens are happiest when they can remain independent, and stay in their own homes as long as possible. Home health care makes that possible,” said Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services.
Here are three ways home health care helps seniors live happier lives by staying in their own homes safely.
Health Care Providers Help with Daily Activities
Things many people take for granted, like getting dressed, making meals and completing basic hygiene tasks can be daunting for the elderly. In fact, they can be dangerous. Daily activities are common reasons elderly individuals move into senior assistance facilities or with grown children and their families.
Home care professionals offer in home care, helping seniors with daily needs, keeping them safe, comfortable and in good health. Home care providers can do everything from laundry and dusting to helping seniors bathe and take care of their oral health.
In Home Care Offers Safety
A qualified professional home health care provider can assess the home to ensure it is safe for an older individual. Seniors often have limited physical abilities and lack the balance they once had in youth. In home care providers can suggest modifications to make it easier for seniors to get around safely.
Quality Home Health Care Providers Offer Companionship
Many seniors face depression, which can negatively impact health and well-being. Older individuals are often separated from their families by distance or physical disability and home health care providers relieve feelings of sadness and isolation. Home caregivers will also help seniors enjoy outdoor activities whenever possible, enjoying sunshine and fresh air.
