Our Private Home Care Services Help Seniors in the North Bay Region Manage Chronic Conditions
Our professional caregivers help seniors in the North Bay area manage chronic conditions with private home care services
When seniors develop 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, and moving into a nursing home or assisted living facility can be devastating.
At Visiting Angels San Rafael, we have the experience needed to help seniors in San Rafael, Mill Valley, Belvedere, Novato, and throughout Marin County manage chronic conditions. With one-on-one private home care services, our caregivers help senior clients maintain their independence while providing the essential support they need to make managing chronic conditions a little bit easier.
What Are Chronic Illnesses?
Chronic illnesses are conditions that require medical attention for over a year. These conditions can significantly impact the way a senior 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.
Chronic conditions can make everyday tasks difficult, or even dangerous, for seniors who live independently. Forgetting to take medications or ignoring changes in symptoms can lead to long-term challenges for seniors.
Managing Chronic Conditions at Home
With our private home care services, senior clients work with our team of Home Care Aides to create a plan that best fits their unique needs. For those who have chronic illnesses, it means they’ll get the support they need to not only stay comfortable in their own home, but also the assistance needed to manage their conditions safely.
Some of the ways our caregivers can help 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
- Transportation to doctor’s appointments, the pharmacy, the grocery store and more
- Joyful companionship
- Fall prevention solutions
At Visiting Angels San Rafael, we aim to increase the number of “good days” each client has and reduce the likelihood of health complications. We make every effort to ensure the caregivers we hire have the right qualifications and character to join our team, so you can rest assured your loved one will be in capable and caring hands.
