El Cajon Homecare Agency Providing Caregivers and In-Home Skilled Nursing for the Greater San Diego Area Publishes Helpful Guide - 3 Ways an In-Home Nurse Can Support Family Caregiving
— Firstat Nursing Services, a senior care home health and caregiver agency providing Homecare Nurses to the El Cajon area shares “3 Ways an In-Home Nurse Can Support Family Caregiving.”
“The decision to care for an aging or sick loved one at home isn’t always made easily,” says Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services. With many considerations, medical and otherwise, long term care at home is a serious obligation. Luckily, families can relieve some of this burden by hiring an at-home nursing service.
Here are three ways a qualified in-home nurse can supplement caregiving by family.
Quality Time Away
At-home caregiving is a full-time job. Tireless family members often need a break from the obligation but rarely find the time. With an at-home nurse scheduled to visit a few days a week, caregivers have time to focus on other responsibilities. Particularly when there are children involved, or when caregivers need to provide for more than just an aging family member, having a hired hand available is an invaluable resource.
Reduce Medical Uncertainty
Caring for a loved one can sometimes mean needing to understand complicated or unfamiliar medications, or procedures. When it’s time to administer insulin medication or dress wounds, an in-home nurse can provide peace of mind. Part-time care for a loved one can be scheduled to accommodate medical needs, relieving stress and reducing uncertainties around medical care.
Promote Senior Independence
Caregivers who live at home with an aging family member often find it difficult to encourage appropriate levels of independence. It’s tough to recognize when a loved one is ready to handle more physical or emotional responsibility. With years of experience dealing with complicated disease, mobility issues, and more a trained in-home nurse can guide family decisions regarding how much independence to offer a frail senior. With the right decision making in place, seniors thrive in a safe, familiar environment.
