Firstat Nursing Services, a skilled nursing and caregiver agency providing Homecare Nurses to Rancho Santa Fe shares, “3 Ways At-Home Nursing Care Relieves Stress.” —
“When an aging parent or injured family member needs special attention, it’s often accompanied by uncertainty,” says Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services. Will mom or dad be able to live alone? How will they get back and forth to doctor’s appointments or travel to the store to buy groceries? Luckily, there are easy options for family members looking for help.
Here are three ways a qualified at-home nursing service can relieve stress surrounding an aging parent.
Readily Available Medical Advice - Many seniors age gracefully at home, even if they need occasional medical attention or guidance. Whether it’s properly administering insulin for diabetes, dressing topical injuries after surgery, or simply ensuring they take daily medication at the right time and in the right dosage, a helping hand is smart. A registered, highly trained nurse can visit each day, even for just a few hours, giving loved ones the expert medical attention they deserve.
Companionship and Quality Interaction - Rather than passing endless hours at home alone, seniors thrive when given the opportunity to spend time with a friendly visitor. Nursing services can send someone to the parent’s home each day to play cards, take walks and spend meaningful time together. With a friendly face to interact with, seniors stay motivated and upbeat, assuring worried family members that someone is entertaining loved ones when a family member can’t.
Create and Maintain a Safe Space - Family members often stress that an aging parent isn’t keeping their home as clean or safe as necessary. In-home nursing services can help, with someone available a few days a week to help with housekeeping and in-home safety. A trusted nurse can ensure loved ones stay comfortable and secure, checking in on a daily or weekly basis. With regular visits scheduled, families can relax with confidence that mom or dad is living alone safely.
