In Home Care Sacramento provides home healthcare to individuals that would prefer to receive healthcare services in the comfort of their own home. Home healthcare has become a very important and prominent facet of caregiving and healthcare over the last decade as more and more individuals prefer to stay in their homes to receive the necessary care. From seniors that have dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, to people recovering from a surgery, home health care provides a wonderful, and often less stressful alternative to staying in a hospital or healthcare facility. The purpose of this blog is to describe to you the advantages and disadvantages of receiving such care in your home.
Let me first start by telling you a little about myself. I am a Registered Nurse. I have worked in all different types of hospital and healthcare departments from gastrointestinal procedures, emergency room, research, Intensive Care Units, and Hospice. Throughout my career and most especially during my time as an ICU and Hospice Nurse, I discovered the need for a service that provided medically appropriate and monitored care to people that prefer and often yearn to be in the comfort of their own home. The most common theme and phrase I would hear from the people I cared for was, “I just want to go home.” And there is a good reason this is the most common theme, because that is where people feel the most comfortable. On a personal level, I am currently helping my mother and other family members grieve the loss of my father. He was sick and suffering for a long time. He spent time in and out of different hospitals and rehabilitation facilities with much disdain, until he decided enough was enough. Long story short, my father was able to come home and spend his last days in his bed with a view out to the hills that he knows and loves. Nursing care was provided throughout and made his passing peaceful. I am convinced that my father being at home was a huge component of a smooth and graceful transition to whatever it is that is after this terrestrial existence. That is why I created In Home Care Sacramento.
My situation is not all that uncommon and in fact, as baby boomers age, this will be more and more common. People are busy with their jobs and children and caring for someone who is ill or in need of care can be extremely difficult from many different viewpoints. It can take a physical, emotional, and spiritual toll on you and that can be tough to recover from. Also, often times your loved one that needs is located in a different city, state, or even country, making it even more of a challenge to ensure they are receiving the quality care. You could find yourself flying or driving from your location to your loved one’s home or care facility many times in a short period of time. We want to ensure the ones we love are getting the best care possible so we often feel obligated to make those trips over and over again until we become exhausted in the process. But, it does not have to be that way. Give In Home Care Sacramento a call today and find out how we can help.
How nice would it be to know that your family member is in the best hands possible, receiving the care they need, and in the comfort of their home? I am sure this would lift a huge weight off your shoulders as it did for me and the situation with my father. So let’s talk about what In Home Care Sacramento can do for you.
This list by any means is not exhaustive. There are many more advantages to at home healthcare and probably the most important that is not included in preceding list, is the fact that your loved one will experience far less stress in their own home versus a healthcare facility. When an individual is able to minimize stress, they have the best opportunity to heal more efficiently than otherwise. Stress is the precursor to disease, and dis-ease, is simply a body that is not at ease. Environments that we know, places we have spent a considerable period of time, provide us with a calming effect. It is these spaces that give us the best opportunity to heal in the best way possible. And that is why we here at In Home Care Sacramento created this wonderful service.
