Currently Baby Boomers and the Generation X population are facing the issues that come with the aging of their parents. According to AARP, “More than 80 percent of Americans over 50 say they want to remain in their home as they age.” It is always a good idea to communicate with your aging parents and consider possible healthcare options ahead of time instead of dealing with these emotional decisions on top of a health scare or crisis. While this may not be an easy conversation, once discussed, all parties will feel a sense of ease and preparedness. At Champion Home Health Care we know that home is where the heart is. We believe home setting healthcare is often a great option for seniors recovering from illness or a fall, and for those who are aging and need an extra hand. Let us assist you in matching our services to the needs of your loved one.
Typically, when one thinks in terms of how, when, where, and why we move aging parents from the home, it revolves around a crisis situation. A fall or illness can have a more intense and detrimental effect on the elderly. Normally in these situations people tend to default to nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living facilities for care. At Champion Home Health Care, we want to assist you in keeping your loved one at home whenever possible. We can do this by offering a diverse and thorough menu of at-home aid. Here is a comprehensive list taken from our website to remind you of the types of assistance we can provide. By doing so, we hope to bring both family and patient peace of mind and quality healthcare while comfortably remaining at home:
- Range of motion assistance
- 24-hour care
- Respite program-relief for primary caregiver
- Monitor medication schedules
- Light housekeeping
- Continence care
- Meal preparation
- Bathing / Grooming
- Prescription pick up
- Grocery shopping
- Monitoring controlled diets
- Transportation to and from doctor appointments
The above list gives one insight into the complexities that arise when an elderly family member is injured, rehabilitating, ill, or simply aging and not able to manage alone. These issues are intensified when family members are not close by or are unable to fully assist due to juggling work and the stressors of their own everyday lives and schedules. With a little preplanning and foresight, the qualified caregivers at Champion Home Health Services can provide an alternative to placement in a facility.
