3 Helpful Tips to Become a Successful Home Health Aide

A Home Health Aide or a Caregiver has certain elements of their job that make it stressful to care for patients directly.  I speak to Home Health Aides on a daily basis, and their main concern is that they want to be successful at their job.  There are an estimated 50 million family home health aides looking after disabled and elderly loved ones.  A majority of Home Health Aides might be taking care of a grandparent or a parent.

It is no secret that caregivers care about their job, and I have compiled a list of helpful tips to help you become a successful home health aide. 

Helpful Tip #1:  It’s not as easy as it may sound, but exercise is said to help improve the health of your mind and body.  I am not talking about vigorous exercises or hitting the gym hard.  A leisure 20-min walk is said to decrease stress-related problems.

Helpful Tip #2:  Take time off when you need to.  Being a companion or a caregiver to someone can be tiring and take its toll.  Your body and mind are a temple.  If you notice that you become irritable quicker, you are more tired than usual, and you don’t have the patience to handle certain situations, it’s time to take time off to recover,.

Helpful Tip #3:  Less Worrying. More Smiling.  Emotionally, our brains are interconnected with our body.  When you laugh and smile more, you can relieve the tension and stress you feel.

Better Care At Home

Better Care At Home

I am sure you heard the rumors or have seen the advertisements online while checking your Facebook.  It’s about the new way of receiving health care.  We know that millions of Americans, including myself and yourself, are in search of a health care system that is reliable plus affordable.

Where Can I Find Quality Care?

I explore the internet for common problems that people encounter when they search for alternative methods to care.  What I noticed is that there is no straight answer to the question of what is the best type of care.  It really depends on what you are searching for.  However, a common concern among health care seekers is the quality.  Am I going to receive quality care if I choose this path?  This is an excellent question to ask because without quality care how can you expect to get better or have an independent lifestyle?

Better Care is at Home

There are thousands upon thousands of articles expressing what is the best healthcare system for you.  In reality, you’re the only person who can answer that question.  What are your needs?  Can your family be there to monitor?  What I can say though is that most people prefer care at home.  It has been proven that people receive better care at home.  Psychologically, people recover quicker when they recognize their surroundings.  Physically, there is no better comfort than knowing that you are in your own bed and your own house.

What I have learned is that health care is a universal concern for the general public.  Care at home is possible in today’s day and age.  It is better than ever with the technological advancements that have been made.

Healthy Aging is Possible and Highly Expected

Healthy Aging is Possible and Highly Expected

The expectations in today’s society for aging are high and with all the modern technologies that there are it shouldn’t come as a surprise. Honestly, I don’t blame the people either.  As younger adults, you never think about aging or the effects it will have on your body.  You had this belief that aging wouldn’t change you emotionally or mentally, and it shouldn’t have to. The quality of life beyond expectations is what most are looking for.

What is Healthy Aging 

We should take a closer look at what healthy aging is.  Healthy aging is defined as how to make the best of the extended quality years. In today’s society, even with chronic diseases like dementia, heart disease, diabetes, and/or cancer, aging is not a disease.  It is a lifelong process that occurs naturally.

For this reason, even if those who are older and have chronic diseases, there are alternatives for them to use to restore their quality of living.  Home care services and care at home technological treatment has given seniors the ability to age comfortably at their home without the unnecessary stress of visiting doctors or hospitals.

The History of Aging and Where It’s Headed

The history of aging has increased in the past one-hundred years.  In the early 1900’s, the life expectancy was 50 years of age.  Throughout the past several decades, the life expectancy has increased to well over 75.  Nevertheless, despite the aging beyond the normal, developed countries like Japan have a high percentage of people living over 100-years of age.

There are more and more 90-year-olds running marathons than before.  Though these reflect strange cases, it doesn’t necessarily mean that’s how normal people age.  This is why technology has been rampant and determined to find resources for the aging to provide them with an easier lifestyle.  The quality of life is expected is higher than ever before especially by 2050.  With millennials being the biggest population, by 2050 more than 2 billion people will be older globally which means aging demographics won’t be as abnormal as everyone predicts.

The aging process is a normal part of most people’s lives.  However, for how long will that continue?  It is unknown currently, but scientists have a theory. that with the rapid introduction of modern science and technology, aging might not be a problem for future generations.

It is predicted that in the next one-hundred years people will live beyond one-hundred years of age.  The societal norm of life expectancy should continue to break through stereotypes and boundaries.

Home Care is the Help at Home that Seniors Deserve

Home Care is the Help at Home that Seniors Deserve

A number of questions are presented when seniors and their family members encounter a situation where they need to seek out in-home care services.  What I have seen is that most families have no idea where to start.  Their relative is often against the idea of having the additional assistance too.  If given the choice, most seniors prefer to live independently which is great!  I mean everyone has the sense to feel important and valuable to society.

They Are Veterans of Society

In most instances, older patients are retired veterans, incredible professionals, and/or parents who were the head of the household for years.  For them to suddenly give up their independence, it is a difficult thing to do.  It is not easy getting older.  While there are advantages of aging, it can take a toll on those who aren’t ready to give up their freedom yet.  However, they don’t need to give up their freedom.  As a matter of fact, home care services were created for the sole purpose of giving elderly and seniors the opportunity to stay at home and be productive.

Home Care Services and Caregivers

Home care services had broken down the barriers that keep seniors from committing to home care agencies and other support services.  Caregivers are compassionate! They love what they do.  It is not an easy profession to be selfless, yet most Home Health Aides are.

I have seen several times where older grandparents become attached to their Home Health Aides and love the additional companionship they receive.  In addition, most people prefer to live out the rest of their days at home and if they need help, caregivers are sometimes the better option than depending on families.
