Why Consider In Home Health Care?

Most of us don’t like the thought of aging… but we have to admit it beats the alternative. Enjoying a long life isn’t without its complications, however. As a kid, you probably believed your dad was the strongest man you knew. Or the smartest. So it’s bittersweet now, to think of your parents becoming fragile and unable to care for themselves. But with age, specialized healthcare often becomes a necessity often involving a home health aide. Slowed reflexes and weakened joints are the reality, even for those who pursue a healthy, active lifestyle.

You may be more than willing to care for your aging family members, but it’s important to realize that your home may not be comfortable or practical for them. It’s not always safe to assume the caretaker role for an elderly person. Minor falls and spills can be extremely dangerous, causing unrecognized injuries that create long-term complications. Delicate skin, systems and tissues are very vulnerable – and the simplest tasks can become frustrating and futile. Without proper training, experience and facilities, you may be putting them – and yourself – at risk.

Where can they go? For many seniors, there’s nothing more depressing than the idea of a nursing home. Restrictive, stark and unfamiliar surroundings can be jarring – and accounts of elder abuse and neglect are sad and terrifying. Home health agencies recognize that uprooting older people, even for their own safety, isn’t always the best solution. The experience can be very disheartening.

In Home Needs Assessment

After your inquiry, a supervising nurse – usually an RN or LPN – will schedule a home visit. The nurse often brings a home aide, social worker or physical therapist, to talk with you and fully assess the scope of needs. This will include the patient’s history, medications list, any medical equipment or devices used, possible injections or IV placement, physical, occupational or speech therapy requirements and doctor’s recommendations. We will evaluate the home layout and orientation. Read More
