When You Need Personal Care, Home Care Is The Best

Home care is the best

I know you have probably heard millions of articles that claim to have the best solution to your problem. I can promise you this isn’t another one of those articles.

This article speaks the truth. In today’s society, where loneliness is a big problem and people prefer the comforts of their home, personal care is essential to live a healthy life.

Personal Care is Personalized

Personal care is personalized. Additionally, home care agencies in the United States are required to provide their patients with quality services. Regulations protect civilians, but at the same time, ensure that they are given the best treatment.

There is a reason why hospitals refer their patients to home care agencies.

It’s because there is nothing else like personal care out there! Nursing homes may be a temporary solution. However, most of our parents and grandparents prefer to stay at home. It is a comfort to know your surroundings too. Psychologically, it is a benefit to them.

Home Care is Affordable

Yup! Home care is affordable too. As most insurances cover home care, good home care agencies provide affordable private pay services too. The competition in the industry gives patients the power to choose. The more competition an industry has the better it is for the consumer.

Home Health Aides are Excellent Caregivers

Home health aides are excellent caregivers. Firstly, home attendants are trained and certified. They can take the anxiety away from families concerned about their loved one receiving the proper care. Secondly, home health aides report to a nurse.

In most states, nurses must make home visits every 90-days to check on the patient. Nurses are on-call too. This means that families can have a peace of mind about their loved one’s safety and well-being throughout the day. It is for the benefit of the family that they don’t worry!

Finally, most home health aides are genuinely compassionate. They love giving care.

I Forgot They have Alzheimer’s…

I Forgot They have Alzheimer’s…

I forgot they have alzheimers

Have you ever started a sentence and in the middle of it forgot what you were going to say? Have you ever walked into a room to perform a task but forget what that task was? Have you ever knew the answer to a question but couldn’t get the answer out?

Now imagine that feeling every minute of every day for the rest of your life. The frustration of knowing you know something but being unable to remember it. The feeling of uselessness as people start to do everything for you without asking.

What is it?

In order to understand what it feels like to have Alzheimer’s disease, one must truly understand what it is. Alzheimer’s disease is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking, and behavior.

Dementia is just terminology used for extreme memory loss that can have an effect on a person’s everyday activities. Both of these conditions can have made a mark many people in society today.


Statistics…

Every minute someone in the US is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. It is the 6th leading cause of death in the US. It has affected more of the country then people realize. Currently, 5.5 million US citizens have Alzheimer’s. 44 Million are living with a form of Dementia in the world.

Within the US 3.3 million out of the 5.5 million patients of Alzheimer’s are women. This condition also affects those youth too as 200,000 of these cases have been younger than 65. This is not including the many people who mistake Alzheimer’s foraging.

Aging or Dementia?

There are many symptoms of dementia. These include a change in personality, memory loss, newfound struggles in writing and speaking. However, as the symptoms are very similar to aging one should look for all extreme cases.

Someone with Dementia will most likely not be able to retrace their steps of the day. They develop more distrust for people and have high levels of anxiety. In many scenarios, at the further stages of Alzheimer’s patients become delusional and irritable.

This then begins to affect the way they are able to go about their normal daily activities. This can take a toll on both the patient and the family. If you believe that a loved one is suffering from any form of dementia talk to a doctor.

The more you inquire the easier it will be for a doctor to help. Never be afraid to ask because every day you wait can be another day of pain and confusion for them.

Home Health Care Versus In-Home Care. Which One is Best for You?

Home Health Care Versus In-Home Care. Which One is best for you?

As the United States ages, the need for a home health/ in-home aid increases more and more. But, how do you know if you qualify for one and which aid would work best for you? How do you pay for a Home Health Aid? Where can you find the best ones?

These questions are some of the main things people are looking for when searching for a home health aid. Due to the lack of information provided and the unknown, many go without the help they need.

In order to help people live a more comfortable and easier life the public needs to be properly informed.

Along with the many misinterpretations about home aids in society today that have impacted the amount of help being received, the lack of information given to patients has had a huge role in the decline of home health aides and home care aides.

Many don’t even realize that there are differences between  home health care and in-home care. This may cause a patient to hire the wrong aid and could potentially cause serious issues.

Home Health Care is Great for your Health

Home health care patients tend to be the more demanding of the two types of aid. Home Health Care services include but are not limited too; wound care, medical tests, therapy, administration of medications including injections, pain management.

Home Health Care patients must be certified home bound by a doctor, they must be under a doctors care at least three months prior to the employment of an aid, they must have a physician prescribed health care plan, among other things.

A home health care aid can be covered by the patients health insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid (depending on the state).  However, the biggest difference between a home health care patient and a in-home care patient is that the home health care patient’s health status must require the assistance from a licensed medical provider.

In-Home Care is Great for the Soul

Even though an in-home care aid can perform many tasks that a home health care aids can do to help a patient they do have many restrictions. In-Home care aid does not need to be a licensed medical provider.

They are allowed to remind the patient of time to take medicine but are not allowed to administer any medication to the patient. An in-home care aid helps more around the house so the patient feels comfortable. This may include cleaning, paying bills, grooming, companionship and home therapy.

The qualifications for an in-home care patients are also more relaxed than home health care patients. Not only do the patients, not need a prescribed aid, they also do not need to considered home bound.

These key characteristics are important to remember when looking for an aid. If any information is needed the patient should ask their doctors and friends and continue to do research in order to find the right fit for them.

The more information they know the more comfortable their life can become.
