Senior Care San Francisco
Everyone ages at different rates, physically and mentally. For some people this decline is going to start much earlier than it will for others, you can never really know when it will happen. On top of that, for some people you will see these changes coming from a long way away and have time to prepare, in other cases something like dementia could progress a long ways in just a mere few weeks. So regardless of how a loved one may be doing now, you need to be prepared for them to deteriorate at the drop of a hat. You want to have a plan for both yourself and your loved ones as the aging process progresses.
High Quality Elderly Care Education
It is vital that you have an understanding of the aging process through education by professionals. The aging process can appear to be simple but it’s actually pretty complicated, a lot of different things can happen and when different medications and treatments get involved it can get overwhelming for even the most apt caregivers. Beyond just all the technical stuff with medication and all of that, it’s important to remember that no matter how old and lost someone may be, they are still a person and they deserve to be treated like one just as much as you do. We insist that you ensure your loved one is not only safe and healthy, but also experiencing an excellent quality of life.
You will see that most older people have many care providers and it is easy to get lines crossed. It’s important to make sure that all of these different sides are communicating and sharing information. One lost piece of critical information could eventually be the difference between life and death.
You have to care for each ailment in a senior independently. Don’t just see them as an old person with dementia who needs medication daily to help them, think of them as a person struggling who you want to both try to heal and maintain their own dependence. It’s also critical, that with different doctors and medication, these are checked against one another to ensure they won’t cause any strange reactions or conflicts with the patient. Medical error can easily lead to illness, injury or even deaths.
Geriatric Home Consultations
It is very hard to make these “end of life” decisions for our loved ones and can be very stressful. Life gets busy, it’s hard to set aside enough time to provide the quality of care you may want to an elderly family member, sometimes you just need the help of a solid resource or even someone to come by and give you a hand when needed. Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it, what really matters is providing every elderly person with the quality care that they deserve. Elderly Care San Francisco will help you create the perfect plan for your loved one.
