How Our In-Home Care Providers Can Help Seniors in the East Bay Area Manage Their Chronic Illnesses
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.
At Visiting Angels San Ramon, we have the experience needed to help seniors in San Ramon, Danville, Pleasanton, Lafayette, and throughout Alameda and Contra Costa Counties in California live with chronic conditions with quality in-home senior care services. Our in-home care providers can help your loved one maintain their independence while providing the essential support they need to make managing chronic illnesses and conditions a little bit easier.
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 senior care may not be enough to help them live out their golden years in the comfort of their own home.
