Care for Senior Citizens/Elderly Persons
Caring for elderly patients is one of our key services.
Why Do Older People Need Special Attention?
As people grow older, their medical needs may change. This is due to changes in their bodies (physiological changes), changes in their lifestyles (e.g. from active to sedentary) or even changes in their circumstances (e.g. from working to retired). Those are not the only causes though.
We Can Visit Older People To Take Care Of Many Simple Medical Needs
Home health care services are particularly useful for our older patients. They save the patient energy especially when they need attention for simple or small medical needs. With a home visit, they can avoid the stress and strain of going to a hospital.
We Care For Different Types Of Chronic Illnesses
We will visit them regularly if the illness is ongoing (i.e. chronic illnesses). In this way we monitor the signs and symptoms of the illness. We can also ensure that the patient receives the right food and medication. However, not all are illnesses of the body.
We offer Psychological Support
Like their younger counterparts, older people experience psychological difficulties. When things that they are used to change, they can feel pained. For example, when people cannot control their bodily functions, they can get emotional. There can be other causes too. We work with psychologists and other specialists to find solutions in each case.
We Support Them In Non-Medical Activities That Maintain And Support Good Health
Medical treatment, alone, does not keep older patients healthy. They need activities that promote good health. Examples are good food habits, regular exercise, outings and excursions that they find enjoyable. Particularly helpful are social gatherings that allow them to interact with other people.
Apart from medical treatment, we assist our patients in routine tasks. Previously, they may have paid their bills, gone to the bank or gone shopping by themselves. If they need assistance we provide it.
We keep a record of everything we do for our patients. Older patients usually have family members or other people responsible for them. We provide those responsible with regular reports and updates.
Our teams of doctors and nurses are available on call throughout the day, every day of the week.
