The Spirit of Giving is a Home Health Aide’s Strength

The Spirit of Giving is a Home Health Aide's Strength

 

 

Caregivers, care attendants, personal caregivers, in-home nurses, Certified Home Health Aides…these are the thousands of names these special people are given as their title. If you were to summarize what they mean in one word, it’s “giving.” It’s the season of giving and for Home Home Health Aides there is no such thing as a season. Christmas will come and go, yet a Home Health Aides perseverance will continue for years to come.

Home Health Aides are Important

Home Health Aides are important. Caregivers are entrusted to care for our loved ones through their times of difficulty. Having met Certified Home Health Aides during my time in the education-health care field, I realized that their work often goes unappreciated or undervalued in society. It’s a sad truth that I decided to share to enlighten the public of their gracious deeds. Throughout the year, these hard-working employees take care of the elderly and sickly with their utmost attention. The patients they care for are not always the easiest and at times can be almost impossible to deal with. However, with a passion for their work, they continuously fight through the daily struggles to assist family members with the best care possible.

Their Contribution and the Future to Society

Home Health Aides contribute more to society than one might believe. You can place the statistics aside for a moment and think logically as a patient. Would you rather receive care in a facility that you do not know or care at a place that you’ve known throughout your life? Doctors and nurses recommend care-at-home for recovery purposes. Patients feel more at peace when they are at home being cared for by the surroundings they are familiar with. Logically, psychology has shown vast advantages for those who choose Home Health Aides over Nursing Homes for their family members. I’ve provided a list of advantages that are prevalent with a Home Health Aide.

  1. Patients are less stressed
  2. Individual care is personalized for the patient
  3. Home Health Aides are trained and instructed by nurses
  4. Hospitals and medical facilities choose caregiving because of its convenience
  5. Patients feel less lonely
  6. Families are less prone to feeling guilty for leaving family members at home alone

The future involved home care especially because Baby Boomers prefer convenience. As the generation ages, the value of Home Health Aides will continue to be immeasurable. It’s vital, as a society, that we continue to show our appreciation towards these heroic people.

Home Health Aides are Trained and Compassionate

Home Health Aides compassion cannot be taught. Caregivers are skilled workers commit to their profession. The biggest misconception I’ve heard is the lack of training Home Health Aides to receive. This is far from the truth or reality. I’ve seen the training first-hand. It’s not easy. A special type of commitment is needed to go through the classes that they do. While every state is different, all Home Health Aides are required to endure vigorous training for their profession. Their hands-on training is crucial to the success and the overall care of the patient that they will be responsible. Home Health Aides are trained, licensed, and skilled professionals. It’s noted that home care agencies do a fantastic job of screening candidates before they are allowed to visit a patient’s home. Then, candidates, are interviewed and placed with the appropriate patient to make sure they are a right fit.

It is a dedication that I see needs attention. The attention we give will improve care for everyone including those

The Positive Perception of Home Care Services

The positive perception of home care services is a hot topic for 2018 and 2019.   For the most part, you may have heard that there is a growing demand for health care services and limited interest in health care careers.  The main problem is the negative perception that home care services receive from media channels.  You rarely hear of the good that home care agencies do for the communities.  I want to share with you the contributions that home care agencies bring.

Home Care Agencies are Community Health Leaders

Home care agencies are community health leaders.  Hospitals, health care centers, and the community of families rely on home care services for their health needs.  For instance, if a grandparent leaves the hospital, home care services assist in ensuring that they recover and that families don’t need to worry.

Home Care Agencies are Employment Friendly

Though home care services are focused on providing care, they are an industry leader in employment opportunities.  The is room to grow in the home care agency.  In addition, home health aides and caregivers are capable of progressing their careers into other fields like administrative or office manager.  Their talent and capabilities of being passionate to people is a business need!  Health care businesses provide training programs for their employees to ensure they can pursue better opportunities.

Home Care Agencies Provide Security

A home care agency in the community provides security for health and for prosperity.  Essentially, health, employment, and security are what many American families care about.  The growth of the industry indicates that most people understand the contributions that home care agencies do for communities.  It is time they are recognized as a positive outlook.

How to Prepare for the Winter: Winter Health

How to Prepare for the Winter: Winter Health

Winter can cause issues with our mental and physical health.

The cold temperature leads to less outdoor time. Many who exercise outside will have a decrease in physical activity. The reduction in exercise means fewer endorphins which will negatively impact both mental and physical health. The cold temperatures can also mean fewer outings with friends. Socialization is important to human’s well-being. Feelings of isolation are very common in the winter. Another common issue is the immune systems response can slow down making you more susceptible to sickness. Many do not venture outdoors. Exposure to colds and viruses is increased because more people are in close quarters and these germs survive better in the cold.

Winter also means less sunshine. The decrease in sunshine has a great influence on mental health. Sunshine gives individuals vitamin d; a lack of vitamin d can negatively influence your mood and energy and has been linked to depression. The increase in darkness can also disrupt your Circadian rhythm. Darkness and light can affect this causing a disruption in your sleeping cycle and feeling abnormally tired.

The dry air that accompanies winter weather can cause discomfort for many. the dry air can cause the skin to itch and peel.

Another aspect leading to health issues for the winter can be a multitude of holidays. Many different religions have special holidays that take place in the winter months, which mean more people coming together and spreading germs. This also means more food. Weight gain is very likely at this time and can cause discomfort for people and affects self-esteem.

You can improve your mental and physical health.

It is important to continue exercising during winter. Try to work out at least 3 times a week for at least 30 minutes each time. This can strengthen the mood and immune system. To keep yourself motivated, you can ask friends to join a local gym or exercise class, or even find home workouts to fit into your schedule.

To stay healthy, it is important to eat healthily. It can be difficult during the winter and holidays, but proper nutrition will help give you energy and can positively affect mood.

In the winter, many individuals retreat from social interaction, but mental health can be negatively impacted by this. It is important to stay socially active, whether it be through strong relationships or volunteering to help others. Both can give you positive social interactions.

Always wash your hands. Make sure you use soap and warm water. Try to use a paper towel to open doors after. Washing your hands should take at least 20 seconds. Hand-sanitizer can also be brought anywhere in case an area does not have soap.

Adults should be sleeping 7-9 hours a night. Poor sleep can worsen the immune system, anxiety, depression, and overall mood. If the air is too dry, humidifiers should be purchased. The temperature inside a house will also affect sleep, too hot or too cold can prevent sleep.

Remember to stay active! Do the things you enjoy. While motivation and focus may be low, once you push yourself the results will be beneficial.
