Our elderly care service in a nutshell
Ageing cannot be avoided, but it would be ideal if you could plan your lifestyle. Nurses Group Homecare provides elderly care and support to aid your loved ones in living a fulfilling life. Based on the specific needs and preferences of the elderly, we will develop an elderly care plan.
There are numerous issues that an elderly person may face as they age. Among the most important are:
1. Mobility care
One of the most common issues that arise as people age is mobility. As a result, assisting with mobility care, rehabilitation, disabilities, and reducing the risk of falls is an important part of enabling older people to live safely at home. Nurses Group Homecare provides in-home care services where a professional carer evaluates the mobility of an elderly person and provides individualised care. Our care support will not only assist with mobility but also encourage your loved one to live an independent life.
2. Incontinence in the elderly
Urinary incontinence occurs when a person accidentally leaks urine. Although urinary incontinence, also known as overactive bladder, may affect anyone, it is more prevalent among elderly individuals, particularly women.
Some people only leak urine on occasion, while others dribble urine all the time, and still others have a complete loss of bladder and bowel control. Bladder control issues can be embarrassing and awkward to discuss. Nurses Group Homecare knows this and will take into account how the elderly feel when talking about the condition.
3. Dehydration in the elderly
As we all know, our bodies are made up of 60% water, so drinking enough water helps our organs function, provides us with some essential nutrients, and allows the heart to pump blood to the muscles. As a result, fluid intake in any form is required. However, as people get older, they don't feel thirsty as much and drink less water, which is very dangerous.
Kidneys lose their ability to retain water due to ageing, putting the elderly at risk and necessitating an increase in water intake to replenish fluids. Hydration in the body is essential because it keeps joint pain and back pain at bay. In the absence of prompt treatment, dehydration can be fatal.
Nurses Group Homecare provides your loved one with trained care assistants who will keep track of how much fluid they drink and remind them to stay hydrated.
4. Sitting services for the elderly
Sitting services allow you to spend a few hours away from the person you care for. It is similar to respite care, in which a carer gets some time to themselves. Helping someone can be both emotionally and physically draining, so carers need breaks that are fun and rewarding every so often.
Nurses Group Homecare offers sitting services, in which a trained carer comes to your home and spends time with the person for whom you care. We are experts in handling age-related illnesses, caregiving, and complex conditions. Our carers are compassionate and respectful of your privacy, and they go above and beyond to provide the best comfort possible.
Our in-home carer can provide care at home for as little as a few hours per week or as much as 24 hours a day. Our carers can assist with everything from housework to medication management, among other things. You can always rely on Nurses Group Homecare because we provide the best care to our clients, allowing them to relax and be at ease.
5. Befriending service for the elderly
Befriending is a viable option when assistance with daily domestic tasks is required or when a carer is absent and you feel lonely. Isolation among the elderly can have a negative impact on both their mental and physical health. This service isn't just for the elderly; it can also be used by people who have complex medical conditions or disabilities.
When elderly people need a little help with their daily household tasks or when their carer is away and they feel lonely, befriending is a viable option. So, this is where private care providers like Nurses Group Homecare help maintain mental health.
6. Overnight care for the elderly
Elderly people are more likely than younger people to awaken in the midst of the night. Broken sleep patterns exacerbate degenerative conditions such as dementia and have a negative effect on the general health of those afflicted. Nurses Group Homecare provides overnight care for the elderly by assisting them throughout the night, thereby aiding your loved one in feeling confident and safe.
7. In-homecare for the elderly
It is nonmedical care provided in the client's home, including custodial care for elderly people and assistance with ADLs. Nurses Group Homecare deploys carers who can help manage clients' basic needs.
Of course, there are some examples of our services. Contact us to discuss the possibilities for customising our service. Our carer will work with your healthcare providers and other carers to create a support plan that is tailored to your specific requirements.
What is personal care for the elderly?
"Personal care" refers specifically to support and supervision with "Activities of Daily Living" (ADLs). Personal care and hygiene for the elderly may become more challenging, and having to accept assistance with everyday tasks can be a daunting prospect. Nurses Group Homecare has trained carers for the elderly at home who can provide personal care support with ADLs, each of which plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle for seniors in need.
The six major ADLs that Nurses Group Homecare assists with are:
- Bathing and hygiene
- Toileting and continence care
