CH, COPD, Diabetes, & Pneumonia Support in Jacksonville
In a 2012 report on serious illness and chronic disease, the Administration for Community Living concluded that the most frequently occurring conditions for seniors included arthritis (50%), heart disease (30%), cancer (24%), diabetes (20%) and high blood pressure (72%). Although most older adults were reported to have at least one chronic condition, many were diagnosed with multiple healthcare problems. Our goal is to teach affected seniors how to safely manage their daily activities and continue living a normal life.
Allowing a loved one to age at home with dignity is a priority to maintaining wellness. Studies have shown that most older people would much rather age in place than move in with their adult children or go to a nursing home. Here at All At Home Healthcare we understand that you have to work and care for your own family, so helping a loved one recover at a separate residence can seem overwhelming. That’s why we offer numerous in-home services for older adults who suffer with serious illnesses, such as congestive heart (CH) failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pneumonia and diabetes.
At your complimentary in-home consultation, we can discuss your loved one’s medical needs as well as those tasks he or she finds to be difficult. Our healthcare professional can administer and monitor prescribed therapies, and our caregivers can perform household tasks, provide companionship and keep your loved one active. We have the knowledge and expertise to make your loved one feel positive about accepting help without feeling like a burden to other family members. As a result, they will be more likely to manage their disease, and less likely to need urgent or emergency care.
After a serious illness or chronic disease is diagnosed, preventing isolation and depression are critical to your senior’s emotional health and overall physical well-being. Call All At Home Healthcare to discuss affordable options for in-home senior care.
