Times are changing, and the face of home health care is changing right along with it. A decade ago, when you thought of in-home nursing care, it was generally reserved for an aging parent or grandparent. Although skilled nursing care is still often needed to provide senior care, private nursing assistance is now available for a wide range of medical or rehabilitative situations.
Is Home Health Care the right fit for you?
Here are some helpful tips to help You decide whether ‘in home’ skilled nursing care can benefit you or your loved one.
Who Can Benefit From Skilled Nursing Care?
- After Surgery Recovery Period – Are you about to undergo surgery? Today’s hospital stays have been cut to the minimum and many patients are spending the majority of their recovery period at home. While there are some definite benefits, especially psychologically, for a patient to return to familiar surroundings as quickly as possible, they may require assistance performing everyday tasks. This is where skilled nursing care comes into play.
Making the decision to hire a home health aide during recovery can reduce stress, provide peace of mind, and actually speed recovery time since a home health aide can perform duties that may aggravate or put unnecessary strain on the patient.
Note: Elective surgery (such as cosmetic surgery) is also taxing on your body. Home health care is perfect for the days following any surgical procedure.
- Homemaker / Companion Services – Maybe your situation isn’t medically related. You may simply need assistance with household chores such as housekeeping, meal planning and preparation, and shopping. If you or a loved one wants to remain independent but needs that extra helping hand, or a companion for errands and doctor visits, a compassionate and helpful home health care professional can be the ideal solution.
- Rehabilitative Assistance – Whether you’ve experienced an unfortunate accident or are recovering from an illness or medical procedure, your body has the amazing ability to heal and rehabilitate when provided the right combination of rest, exercise, and nutrition.
