How Caregivers Can Assist With Chronic Conditions In San Antonio, TX
When a person is no longer able to function independently and requires daily medical care and assistance to help them accomplish everyday tasks, finding the right method of care can be an arduous and emotionally-draining task. While some patients are able to rely on the help of family members or senior living facilities, others prefer to have the comfort and independence of continuing to live in their own homes. In these cases, a home care assistant (or a team of assistants) can be hired to provide the appropriate care in the patient’s home—even 24/7, if necessary.
A professional home care assistant like those at Home Care Assistance San Antonio will perform all manner of tasks necessary to assist the patient with everyday personal needs and household tasks. Examples of duties a home care assistant might take on include the following:
- Reminding patients to take prescribed medications
- Assisting with walking/transportation
- Helping the patient use the restroom
- Preparing meals, serving and/or feeding them to the patient and cleaning up afterwards
- Washing and folding laundry
- Helping with personal hygiene (bathing, brushing hair, etc.)
- Helping the patient get dressed and undressed
- Running errands
…and many more.
Educated, Experienced Care for Patients With Chronic Conditions
In many cases, those who require home care assistance suffer from a chronic disease that requires specialized care. Long-term conditions like heart disease, lung disease, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, arthritis, diabetes, COPD, cancer, developmental disabilities, compromised immune systems or complications from a stroke each pose unique challenges and require unique, individual attention.
All of our San Antonio, TX home care assistants are thoroughly educated on dealing with these and other common health conditions before they are allowed to work with patients in-home. If you or a loved one has such a condition, we will also work with you individually to ensure that the caregiver we provide is well-versed in all the necessary chronic care skills and disease warning signs.
