San Diego Homecare caregivers can assist the elderly with home therapy for chronic pain
Get Seniors Active and Moving – Getting the joints and muscles moving is a healthy way to lubricate painful areas, bringing blood and nutrients to injured areas. Many in-home caregivers and home nurse specialists are trained to help elderly people develop an exercise plan specifically designed for their abilities, ensuring that they understand the routine, and have help performing activities safely.
Keep Tabs on Prescription Medication – Opening pill bottles is a challenge for many seniors. However, when pain is severe, taking more pills than prescribed can be tempting. Trained and certified home nursing professionals can help by filling daily pill holders, making certain there are no extra pills available.
Seek Additional Help – Getting around outside the home is often difficult for older individuals. When pain is overwhelming, a professional caregiver can assist by ensuring seniors arrive at a physician’s office or physical therapist appointment. Having a caregiver present when the doctor or therapist explains treatment is an invaluable resource.
