This is a heartfelt thank you to Veterans. While it is a cliche thing to say, it is with genuine respect that we value your bravery, your selflessness, and your sacrifices. Your service is not what we are thanking. It is the soul behind it that we are thinking of.
It is a day where we value the fallen and current heroes. We don’t need a special holiday to remind us of their legacies. It is a day where we stop and think about what it means to the world to have courageous individuals. There is no way to envision the world without the existence of those people.
The E & S family recognizes that these people helped the world become a better place. The dedication is something to admire, respect, and more importantly honor. We are forever in your debt. The past, present, future generations thank the veterans.
Technology is a part of our lives. It has a bad reputation. The moment you clicked on this article you were probably expecting it to be all bad! There are positive aspects to what we consider a terrible intrusion in our lives. Furthermore, its damages to health are considerable.
In the news, it is blamed for the loneliness epidemic. It has caused problems with distraction. Our common conversations are interrupted by cell phone usage. However, what if I were to tell you that technology has a benefit? What if technology could be used in the right way? There are positives to technology usage especially for dementia patients.
Without a doubt, you might be asking how can technology improve the mood of people with dementia. Despite its flaws, technology offers an outlet for seniors. It can distract them from their current state. For anyone who has cared for a senior with dementia, negative moods like confusion, anger, and sadness are common.
What Research Says
In recent research studies, YouTube was associated with positive moods. According to a mobile company, screen time spent looking at photos, listening to music, or watching videos on YouTube can improve moods drastically. Researchers see this as an alternative to medication. The vast majority of people benefit from tablet sessions.
Aaron Gilson is a health policy researcher with the UW School of Pharmacy who comments on technology usage for patients with dementia. Patients who live in nursing homes and home care are encouraged to use tablets. This is because eighty percent of the care recipients showed significant improvement to their negative mood. Patients can view family photos, playing their favorite music, and following topics they are interested in. Coincidentally, it’s not secret that more people are discovering the wonders of technology for their loved ones.
Technology used correctly can enrich someone’s life. It brings families together closer. Dementia patients use visuals like photos and videos to distract themselves from their debilitating disease. Additionally, it engages their brain with positive associations. Patients with dementia enjoy a significant mood boost.
Since the emergence of Obamacare, the home care sector boomed. With more access to health care options, it’s no secret that home care became the number one choice for elderly and disabled Americans. In comparison to other options, home care services provide Americans the choice to stay home.
Home Care services provide comfort to clients and families alike. Additionally, choices give families the ability to find the perfect peace of mind.
Families Have Options for Care
Families have several options when choosing a care plan for their loved one. These options include nursing homes or assisted living facilities. There is one problem with this option. It comes at a cost. Your loved one may not receive the care they need.
I am a firm believer that families should have as many options as possible for their care needs. The more care need options there are the more likely a family will find what works for them.
Home Care Is a Reliable Choice
I work as a director at a vocational school that trains and educates Nurse Aides. Despite their best intentions, most often the human resource teams at nursing homes are faced with a dilemma. They have the members at their home, but not enough nurse aides to stabilize the care at their facilities.
Nursing Homes are Under Staffed
Nursing homes provide an important piece to the puzzle. However, they face challenges. As someone in charge of a Vocational School, nursing homes are often understaffed and cannot provide the quality their patients deserve.
It is a sad, but true reality for nursing homes. The main reason they are understaffed is because nurse aides are hard to staff. Nevertheless, home care agencies may encounter a similar situation with home health aides.
The main difference though is that home health aides may work for more than one agency. Furthermore, home care attendants provide a personal care assistance that nursing homes cannot give. Essentially, people who are in the home care service industry are passionate about what they do.
At E & S Home Care Solutions, we surround ourselves with compassionate caregivers. The home health aides that take our class know that they are receiving a firsthand experience like no other. Additionally, families that work with our agency understand that they are receiving a quality service of home care attendants.
This month was a big month for our home health aide graduates. With three weeks of extensive training, our caregivers completed their training with flying colors. Furthermore, they are ready to provide care to the families in need.
If you are searching for home care services that are reliable, look no further than E & S Home Care Solutions. This is the best place to find the right caregiver for your loved one.
At E & S Home Care Solutions, we welcome our newest members of caregivers and home health aides to our growing family.
It is hard to focus on our health during our busy schedules. Coincidentally, we prefer to avoid the doctor because it might include an additional coast. As an advocate for home care services, the best part about it is that it is patient focused. This means that the people that are served receive the best care for the price.
Additionally, home care tailors health care to ensure that the care fits the patient perfectly especially when the patient is recovering from an illness. A home health aide allows a patient to receive the care you need in the comfort of your home. Normally, home care services are relatively low in cost and if you have insurance, most of the time it is no cost to you.
A home health aide will change your life. The home health aides we work with are properly trained and educated to treat your current illnesses. If you manage medications, home health aides are tasked to remind you to take them.
It’s like having a dedicated nurse at the comfort of your home. If you deal with anxiety, they can ease your anxiety by being there when you need them the most. Furthermore, a home health aide can understand your illness to the extent that they can educate you if they see any red flags or potential issues early.
The real benefit is a peace of mind.
