End of Life Care & its Importance
The very crucial time in the life of seniors is the end of life stage, when their needs change. At that stage of life, they seek and need attention, care and love 24 hours a day. Their eating habits change, they need someone to help them get changed, bathe them, and help them in many other ways as well. Partners in Health Care know what those seniors require, which is why we offer you the best services in all of Orlando.
The dosages of the medicines as well as the medications themselves change when an elderly person reaches that stage in life. At this crucial stage of life, seniors find it very difficult to take such medication and heavy doses do not suit them. Often, they are required to take medication for health purposes every now and then, which is why the need a personal helper who can ensure that they receive all of them on time. The personal health care person will also make sure that their senior charges are kept socially active so that they do not feel alone and fall into depression.
Bathing & Personal Care
At such a stage of life the elderly are not able to do a lot on their own, and are in need of someone who can remain by their side 24 hours each day so that they do not face any kind of problem no matter what time of day it may be. This includes helping them in their personal care such as changing them, feeding them, giving them a gentle bath, changing the bed sheets to ensure hygiene, and more.
This stage scares many seniors, and leads others to depression; they start thinking of all the bad things, which is never good for their health. Our helpers help them by keeping them distracted. They talk with them, and make them do fun activities regarding their physical, psychological, spiritual, and their social experience.
Quality of Life
They are given the best quality of life, to ensure they remain comfortable and that all their needs are being fulfilled. This does not include just medication; they are given a positive environment so that they do not feel gloomy or like they are not needed.
Family & Friends
At this stage, they feel the need to be around their families and friends for comfort and closure. Meeting their loved ones enlivens them like nothing else and almost literally imbues new life in them. Being surrounded by family members make it easier for them to let go more easily, which is why we often encourage families and friends to visit these seniors and spend as much time as possible. We also think of them as a part of our family, and involve them as they are one of our own.
