Alert Best Nursing & Home Care is a solution for helping your aging loved one with all those things while still maintaining their independence. The below are 4 examples of how home care can help:
#1: Keeping the House Clean:
If you’ve noticed that your senior's home is starting to look a bit unkempt or that dust is gathering, they may be having trouble cleaning on their own. It’s also possible that their vision is failing, and they simply don’t see the dust and dirt. Home care staff can perform light housekeeping duties, such as vacuuming, dusting, sweeping, mopping, laundry, bed linen changes
#2: Meal Times:
Many times we see seniors resorting to processed foods that are convenient and easy to make in the microwave but with inadequate nutritional value. This can lead to all kinds of health issues, such as malnutrition, obesity, or increased risk for serious conditions. Our staff can prepare balanced meals that include healthy ingredients, like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins.
#3: Personal Care/Hygiene
For older adults who have mobility or balance problems, bathing can be a scary and sometimes dangerous task. Water combined with the smooth surfaces in most bathrooms can result in a fall.
Our trained staff can assist with getting in and out of the tub or shower safely while also preserving your loved one's dignity as much as possible. Staff can also help to comb their hair, shave, or apply makeup.
#4: Managing Medical Conditions
Older adults with medical conditions may have trouble managing their symptoms and following doctor’s advice. They may forget to take medication or check their blood sugar which can lead to further or future problems. Our staff can provide medication reminders and can also remind your loved one when it’s time to check their blood sugar. Our Registered Staff (RPN/RN) can also provide health assessments, health teaching and education. Staff are also available to accompany your loved one to appointments and take notes if you are unable to attend.
