The role of caregivers is essential to the well-being of an individual since they provide personal care services that highly value the physical, emotional, and social needs of a person. You may have a senior loved one dealing with a chronic condition and needs assistance with managing the symptoms, especially pain management.
Here are some ways that prevent hospital admission to seniors through the assistance of a caregiver:
- Regular monitoring of health
Monitoring your senior loved one’s health helps manage the symptoms of their chronic conditions, such as hypertension, diabetes, and even Alzheimer’s and dementia. A caregiver can help in detecting any signs of health deterioration in seniors. This way, it can prevent arising health complications. We also ensure regular check-ups to keep up-to-date with their health status.
- Healthy lifestyle
Due to the vulnerabilities and natural effects of aging, it may be challenging for a senior to prepare their meals and stay active through exercise. Caregivers can prepare nutritious meals that promote a well-balanced diet and provide an appropriate exercise regimen for your senior loved one.
- Medication management
We can help your senior loved one in managing their medications. We make sure your senior loved one takes their medicines on time and with the right dosage prescribed by the doctor. We understand that multiple medications can be confusing for seniors, which is why we also incorporate medication reminders for them and coordinate with other healthcare providers for medication refills.
- Fall prevention
Falls and slips are one of the reasons for hospitalizations for seniors. Home modifications are made possible to make a home free from hazards and potential risks of falls. To prevent falls, we help your loved one manage their mobility issues and assist them with using mobility aids.
- Advanced care planning
Advanced care planning involves discussing and preparing for future decisions about the medical care of your loved one. This can help ensure that their wishes and preferences are taken into account, valuing their health and wellness.
Overall, home care services help prevent unnecessary hospitalizations for seniors and promote their overall health. Personal Care Services MidSouth has a team of compassionate and experienced caregivers you can rely on. For more details, contact us!
