Home Care For Elderly Patients in Wheelchairs
Aging can be physically demanding on our bodies. The Mayo Clinic mentions that when we age, our bones become weakened as they diminish in size and density, causing fractures to become more prevalent. Mayo Clinic also notes that our muscles lose their strength, endurance, and flexibility when we get older, making it harder to balance and coordinate one’s body. When this happens, seniors may rely on a wheelchair to move around as they can no longer stand or become easily tired by standing or walking.
If your loved one is in need of day-to-day help, A to Z Home Care are experts at in-home care for elderly patients in wheelchairs. We know letting someone into your home or your loved one’s home can be nerve-wracking, but at A to Z Home Care, we do everything we can to ensure your loved ones are safe and happy, all while in the comfort of their own home. Each of our caregivers is Direct Care Worker (DCW), CPR and First Aid certified, all while being put through a comprehensive background check.
We successfully care for many elderly patients in wheelchairs in need of in-home care. Just because an elderly person now relies on a wheelchair, they can still live in the comfort and convenience of their own homes, all while receiving premium in-home care from the A to Z Team. Due to your loved one’s limited mobility, you may think that they are safer in a nursing home or assisted living facility. But, our in-home care professionals highly recommend letting your loved one stay at home with the help of our caregivers. Elderly patients in wheelchairs tend to thrive better with in-home care, as they are in a familiar, comforting environment.
Give us a call at 480-360-6834 and see how we can help you or your loved one.
A to Z Home Care can help your elderly loved one in a wheelchair in the following ways:
Meal Planning and Preparation
A to Z Home Care knows that it can be hard for elderly patients in wheelchairs to reach items in the kitchen such as food, utensils, pots, pans, etc. They may also not have the strength to manually cook food and/or stand and prepare meals. Our team of expert caregivers will get to know your loved one’s favorite meals and snacks and plan and prepare them.
With your loved one’s loss of strength in their legs, doing daily housekeeping tasks can be extremely hard. A to Z Home Care can do those tasks around the home, such as sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, making beds and laundry.
Our team of trained and experienced caregivers is able to help elderly patients in wheelchairs with bathing and toileting for in-home care. We know if your loved one attempts to do bathing and/or toileting without help, it can result in slips and falls, causing injury. Our caregivers help ensure your loved one is safe.
If your loved one needs extra care after outpatient surgeries such as biopsies, physical therapy, colonoscopies, endoscopies, or simply any type of surgery needing aftercare, A to Z Home Care is there to help your loved one.
Companionship and Socialization
A to Z Home Care knows that as your loved one loses their ability to do daily tasks they were once able to do by themselves, they may feel depressed and in need of companionship and socialization. Our caregivers gladly provide companionship and socialization in our in-home care for elderly patients in wheelchairs. We truly get to know your loved one and form a bond and become a second family to you all.
Exercise and Mobility
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is extremely important for elderly patients in wheelchairs in need of in-home care. A to Z Home Care wants to ensure your loved one receives the daily exercise and mobility exercises to maintain their strength and quality of life. Our caregivers speak with you and your loved one to get to know their limits of what they can and can’t do physically to ensure no injuries occur.
Humor and Fun
A to Z Home Care knows in-home care for elderly patients in wheelchairs can be perceived as not fun. However, all of our caregivers provide humor and fun in every task they do with your loved one. We want their experience with A to Z Home Care to be fun and pleasant. The strong bonds we make with our patients allows us to joke around and make every aspect we help with in-home care fun for everyone.
