Continuing with our series on selecting the right in-home care for elderly veterans, here are some other things you need to keep in mind:
You Should Have a Professional Evaluate Their Needs
Each person has different needs, and by having an expert evaluation, you can determine the type of care that’s required. You can have an independent point of view on the level of medical care and assistance for everyday tasks that your relatives’ needs. This can be a great help when selecting the most appropriate level of care and the best service to provide in-home care for elderly veterans.
Equipment and Access Changes
Quality in home care services are able to advise you on the best changes to make to the patient’s home that will reduce risks and make your relative’s life simpler and safer. This might include changes that may be needed to the building or equipment that can be purchased or hired to make life easier. This can include items such as grab rails, ramps for wheelchairs, medical style beds and lifting devices. All these items will make life better for your elderly relative, and ensure that they have the highest quality of life in their own home.
