Home Health Care in Floral Park, NY – The Answer to Your Home Medical Needs
When your parent has an illness or injury it affects the entire family. Everyone is worried about their well-being. Some people think putting their elderly loved ones into a skilled nursing facility is the only option besides hospital care. Did you know home health care covers a wide range of medical services, and they can be performed in your parent’s home? Think about how nice it would be to let them stay in the comfort of their own home while they recover.
Some examples of what a home health care service offers
To give you an idea of what can be provided in your senior’s home for their health care, here are a few examples:
- Intravenous therapy
- Nutrition therapy
- Wound care for a surgical wound or pressure sores
- Caregiver and patient education
- Administering medication
- Medical care such as a nurse would provide
Home health care provides benefits seniors love, such as the ability to regain their independence as much as possible, and help to becoming as self-sufficient as possible. A doctor’s referral is necessary in order to begin care when covered by Medicare. Home health care staff will keep your loved one’s doctor updated on their progress.
Whether your parent has just had surgery or is dealing with other medical health issues, home health care should be your first choice. Elderly people who stay in their own home and familiar surroundings tend to enjoy better health and quicker recovery rates.
What are some of the daily tasks a home health care worker would do?
- Make sure your parent is safe in their home. For example, not wandering outside.
- Check on your parent’s diet and make sure they are getting full nutrition. Also making sure they stay well hydrated.
- Check their temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, breathing and how they are feeling in general.
- Making sure your parent is taking their prescription medications in the correct doses and according to the prescribed schedule.
- Teaching your parent and yourself what to do to take care of your parent when the home health care worker is not there.
- Making sure your loved one is not having undue amounts of pain depending on the procedure or illness.
- They help to coordinate your parent’s care. In other words, they keep your doctor, you and anyone else who needs to know, updated with the health of your loved one.
Did you know home health care is more affordable than the other options? You can also arrange it on an as-needed basis. For example, you need some medical care for your mother for about 2 hours per day since she has just returned home following surgery. You can hire home health care to come in for a couple of hours to bathe and dress her and change her surgical dressings. You can hire home care to come in after, to give her some company and help her fix a meal and tidy up the kitchen.
