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

Are Potatoes Good For You? Happy National Potato Day

Potatoes are delicious. You can fry them, bake them…the possibilities are endless.  They just seem to go right with everything.  They are like the best side-kick for foods of all time. Alright, I know you clicked on this link because you wanted an answer about whether or not potatoes were good for you.  I will give you the answer.  Despite the millions of jokes, potatoes have about them, they are a good source of nutrition if prepared correctly.  Potatoes are a good source of Vitamin C, Potassium, and Fiber.  

Why Do They Have a Bad Reputation?

It beats me.  Potatoes are considered a staple in most European countries.  In fact, Ireland endured a potato famine crisis that almost starved the country.  If I had to guess why potatoes receive a bad reputation, it is because of how they are prepared.  Potatoes are considered a vegetable.  They are part of the healthy portions of the food group.  Unfortunately, when potatoes are fried in grease and then mountains of ketchup are poured on them, it can make a healthy food unhealthy.

Too Much of a Good Thing Can Sometimes Be Bad 

While potatoes have a list of health benefits, too much of a good thing can sometimes be bad.  This is not to say that you shouldn’t eat potatoes.  Basically, avoid eating too much of them and when you do eat them, make sure that they are prepared in a way that keeps them from losing their valuable nutrients.

Celebrate them

I am here to tell you that potatoes are an excellent source to add to your diet.  Their delicious, easy on the stomach, and are included in online memes for a reason. We should take the time to celebrate the potatoes.
