Preventing falls at home - Seniors Home Care

Winters can be long, cold, and depressing for everyone. Just imagine how hard it is to get by when you are on your own and not as active as you used to be. With all the hardships of the cold, ice, snow, and darkness, we all tend to stay indoors more. For elderly and senior citizens, this can be a time of fewer visits, which can lead to isolation and extreme loneliness and even depression.

What Can We Do to Help?

Firstly, we can all spare a thought for our neighbors and for seniors who are struggling to manage in the winter months. For many of us, that already goes without saying. Most families have elderly loved ones who stay with them during the winter, but this isn’t always a sustainable solution.

If your elderly loved one shows signs of isolation and depression in the winter, consider home care services. An increasing number of seniors prefer to choose personal in-home care services as a better alternative to a nursing home. For many elderly people, remaining in their home environment is more comfortable. The companionship and care of a home care service provider can help them avoid becoming depressed or isolated.

At Tri-Med Home Care Services, Inc., we offer a full range of customized personal home care services that can be provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our dedicated live-in caregivers look after the patient’s health care and general needs, while also providing companionship and building close and long-term relationships.

What Does a Live-In Caregiver Do?

Personal home care services include:

  • Assisting seniors with bathing, dressing, grooming, nutrition, meal preparation, and eating.
  • Light housekeeping, washing dishes, laundry and changing linen, running errands, shopping, and companion care.
  • Medical supervision and live-in healthcare (for instance, to help with problems in everyday activities due to conditions like dementia).
  • Outdoor- and indoor activities like taking a walk, playing board games, and the like.
  • Registered nurses (RNs) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) to administer medicines, follow doctor’s instructions and compliance with therapy.

Live-in care helps to maintain the patient’s dignity and quality of life. It is important to keep your loved one stimulated as they get older. A home caregiver can keep a watchful eye on things at home to ensure things are well - both mentally and physically.
