Illness, without support, is a foe that can disrupt life as previously lived. With proper support, life can be more routine, more enjoyable, and recovery can occur. Whether the illness is short-lived or long-lived, a surgical recovery, or an accident, illness care can provide stability and rest to help recover.
Often healthy meals are at the very heart of recovery. All-Around Home Health caregivers can buy groceries and prepare meals according to a doctor’ diet specifications. They can give medication reminders to ensure no missed doses. They can coordinate care with other health providers, and communicate with family.
When illness comes, home management often suffers. Jobs that the ill person usually perform are suddenly left undone. After a few days the home is suffering. Home management becomes a priority. All-Around Home Health can help with light housekeeping, changing bed linens, doing laundry/ironing, washing dishes, and general home organization. Our Care Manager can assist in planning what needs to be done each day to keep the home operating so that recovery is not hindered by a “daily undone list” of worry.
Personalized Care with Respect
Illness is personal; it requires personalized care. Often the care is temporary, but for the day that it is needed, it is priority. Personal care can range from bathing to toileting needs, or from positioning to exercising. Needs determine the level of care to be provided. The right care can often progress healing, and lift spirits.
When ill, depression or confusion can set in so easily. A check-up call or visit by a professional is always comforting. A daily friendly call from someone on your care team can relieve family members, provide information, and also be enjoyable for the sick one.
Illness supported is better than illness alone.
