Enjoy quality family time without worrying about managing a chronic condition. Stay At Home Care can help you choose the right type of care for loved ones with chronic and specialized conditions. You can request a caregiver with specialized training or experience with the following:
Symptoms of early Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia typically include difficulty concentrating and remembering simple items or tasks. In later stages, someone may be unable to care for themselves without assistance. Advanced symptoms like confusion, withdrawal, or wandering and getting lost can present a challenge for families. Home care for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia is one way to give them the help they need in a familiar environment.
Stay At Home Care of Virginia specializes in referring caregivers with experience in helping those with Alzheimer’s and Dementia and providing assistance to them and their families. These caregivers understand that they may have to reintroduce themselves to your mom or dad every time they come through the door. They know they may have to prepare meals carefully if utensils become too difficult to manage. They know how to stimulate short term memory through cognitive activities, while interacting in your parent’s reality and helping them to reminisce about happy memories.
Living at home can still be an option when you have, or support, someone with a mental or developmental disability. In-home disability care is a common support system for individuals living with acute or chronic conditions.
Professional caregivers blend in with your family while providing companionship, personal care, and housekeeping support to adults with disabilities. A caregiver for your disabled loved one can enable a broader range of activities, mobility, and independence for disabled adults and disabled American veterans.
A caregiver can help adults with such disabilities as multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, stroke victims, ataxia, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, traumatic brain injury, and other neurological, physical, and cognitive conditions.
HOW IMPORTANT IS FALL PREVENTION?
According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 250,000 older adults are hospitalized each year from falls. For seniors, a fall can lead to a significant loss of mobility and independence.
Fall prevention planning can have a huge impact on reducing risk and speeding up recovery.
PREVENTING FALLS AT HOME
There are a few quick ways to help with fall prevention at home. You can tape down any throw rugs in hallways and rooms so people don’t trip over the corners.
You might also consider night lights in hallways to help avoid falls when using the restroom at night, and adding non-slip mats in the kitchen and bathroom.
HOME CARE CAN HELP WITH FALL RECOVERY
If your loved one has recently fallen, a caregiver can support them at home in recovery. Having in-home help also improves the chances of preventing falls from happening in the first place. Caregivers can encourage regular exercise and prompt a loved one to take medications on time, which can lower the risk for side effects like dizziness. They can also eliminate fall hazards around the home and provide stability and assistance in slippery areas like the bathroom or kitchen.
IN HOME CARE FOR INDIVIDUALS LIVING WITH ALS, MS AND PARKINSON’S
Stay at Home Care of Virginia specializes in finding professional, compassionate caregivers to help families and individuals with neuromuscular conditions such as ALS, MS and Parkinson’s. Home care, respite care, and other solutions like live-in care, 24-hour care, or overnight care can help relieve the pressure on family members to be both family and caretakers to their loved ones with neuromuscular conditions.
IN HOME CARE FOR ALS
ALS can create a huge challenge when it comes to day-to-day activities. But living with ALS doesn’t have to mean giving up your dignity and independence. If you or your loved one has been diagnosed with ALS, compassionate in-home caregivers can help manage a wide range of household chores, personal care routines, and errands.
IN HOME CARE FOR MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
The progression and severity of MS varies from person to person, but many people with MS need some level of support for personal care functions. Sometimes the responsibility of care falls to loved ones or family members, and can place significant strain on important relationships. Professional caregivers can help those with advanced MS live a rich and rewarding life while remaining in their own home.
IN HOME CARE PARKINSON’S
The first Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) affected by Parkinson’s disease typically include the ability to dress, walk, and get in and out of bed. While treatment for Parkinson’s disease can provide dramatic relief from symptoms, later stages may require additional support at home. You can request a caregiver who has experience or specialized training in providing care for individuals with Parkinson’s disease.
CONCIERGE-STYLE CARE TO GET YOU BACK ON TRACK
No matter your age, post-surgery routines usually require rehabilitation. In most cases, the success of your surgery depends heavily on your post-surgery recovery. Why not recover after your surgery in the comfort of your own home with one-on-one support?
Caregivers can help with things like meal preparation, transportation and accompaniment to doctor’s or physical therapy appointments, and housekeeping so you can rest and recover.
If your recovery limits mobility, caregivers can help you move safely, dress, bathe, or practice range-of-motion exercises as prescribed by a physical therapist. They’ll even remind you to take medications on time so your post surgery at home recovery goes as smoothly as possible. As you get stronger and more independent, you can change your hours and services until you’re back to 100%.
Caregivers can aid you or your loved one with after surgery home care needs for a variety of surgeries. Here are a few common surgery recoveries we can assist with:
- Heart surgery home care recovery
- Hip replacement home care recovery
- Knee surgery home care recovery
