What Are Chronic Illnesses?
Chronic illnesses are illnesses that require medical attention that last for over a year. These conditions can significantly impact the way an individual lives and make everyday tasks even more difficult. Some examples of chronic illnesses include arthritis, asthma, respiratory illnesses, diabetes, heart disease, various types of cancer, osteoporosis and more. When a loved one has developed a chronic condition, standard in-home care may not be enough to help them live out their golden years in the comfort of their own home.
How Can Chronic Illness Support Help Richmond-Area Seniors?
When an elderly loved one has developed an age-related chronic condition, it can be difficult for family caregivers to provide the proper care they need to remain at home. However, many seniors still value their independence despite chronic conditions, so moving a loved one into a nursing home or assisted living facility might seem like a good idea at first, but can be devastating for your loved one. With in-home chronic illness support from Visiting Angels Richmond, you loved one can get the support they need in comfortable, familiar surroundings.
Our home care services are personalized for each and every client. For those who have chronic illnesses, it means they’ll get the support they need to not only stay safe and comfortable in their own home, but also the assistance needed to manage their conditions. Even though our caregivers provide essential personal care, their support is still essential in improving the quality of life of seniors with chronic afflictions.
Some of the many ways our caregivers help our clients include:
- Meal planning and preparation
- Light housekeeping, such as vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and more
- Assistance with bathing, grooming and dressing
- Toileting and incontinence care
- Medication reminders
- Mobility assistance
