What I Learned About Home Healthcare And How It Can Help Your Family

About a year ago, I spent Thanksgiving with my in-laws as is the custom, but I, along with nearly everyone else at the get-together noticed that my mother-in-law was very quiet, ate almost nothing, and seemed out of it. Now, the entire family is having to cope with what ended up being an Alzheimer’s diagnosis & having to decide when home healthcare might be the best option with which to go. In short, it’s been a helluva change.

At first, the family was at a loss for what to do with the diagnosis. Some were shell-shocked and other were angry. When it came to my in-laws (Ma & Pops), they didn’t see the need for any alarm and didn’t think that there was anything wrong. Unfortunately, one phone call changed everything, and all of a sudden, everyone had to spring into action.

My brother-in-law went over for a check-up visit, and saw that my father-in-law fell, hurt himself pretty badly, and was laid-out unconscious. After seeing his dad in this state, he panicked at what might have happened to his mom. It turns out, she wasn’t aware that anything had happened or that her husband was in any danger. Things had certainly changed.

Now, our lives are filled with physical & electronic calendars at everyone’s homes noting doctor’s appointments, divvying out who takes the in-laws out for groceries and other errands (they aren’t allowed to drive anymore), and finding ways of trying to keep things as normal as possible for a situation that is anything but normal. The problem is that when you think things are moving in the right direction, you’re quickly given a dose of reality. Between major health scares for my brother-in-law & an increasing severity in Ma’s degradation, everyone is at or near a breaking point.

It’s here where home healthcare has become an incredibly important topic for all of us. We’ve come to realize that there are a number of agencies in the area that provide services, but they aren’t all the same. As such, if you’re thinking about home healthcare for your family, make a list of the specialities & needs that have to be addressed by a prospective home healthcare service provider. This way, you can narrow down your search. It’s also been important for my family to make sure that the agencies we look at put an emphasis on independence for those being cared for.

Ma & Pops are retired educators with decades of experience, multiple degrees (Dr. Pops to be specific), and have been married since the early 60s. They’ve made a successful life based on hard-work & grit. In fact, Pops still mows his own lawn & he’s 81. Being able to maintain independence for them is essential to the whole family, and it’s something you definitely need to keep top of mind.

Finally, the one thing I’ve learned about home healthcare is that it does more than just help those being cared for – it helps everyone. Therein lies the most important part of finding the right agency. We’re still making things work right now, but now that we’ve started the conversation about home healthcare, everyone seems a bit more relaxed & confident that we can make the right call when the time’s right. Every family is different, so if your family is thinking about home healthcare, have a plan, be patient, and take heart in knowing that things will be OK.

Healthy Living – The Best Tips For Getting Through A Cold

No one likes being ill. But yet every year, there is a good chance you will catch at least one cold or flu bug. Double this if you have children. When you are down and out with a cold, what do you find happens to your diet and fitness plan? Do you abandon ship, telling yourself you will start-up again once you are feeling better? If that is the case, you may want to rethink your strategy to some degree. While you obviously are not going to hit the gym and crash through some personal best records, this does not mean you have to become a junk-food eating sloth on the couch either. Here are some healthy ideas to keep in mind…

1. Drink Plenty Of Water. First, this tip will work double time because not only will it help you stay healthy, but it may just help you get past your cold as well. You should aim to drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water even while sick. If you are struggling to get your water intake in, note you can also make your fluid intake from broth-based soups, or teas. Some people find chicken soup, for instance, is the perfect fluid to take in while they are unwell.

2. Get Up And Walk – If It’s Shoulders And Above. The golden rule for activity while ill is if it is above your shoulders, you are free to do any activity you choose. If it is below your shoulders, however, then you will want to rest up for the time being.

Head colds will not preclude you from participating in light to moderate intensity activity. You probably do not want to do anything super intense because that will place a strain on your CNS and in turn, make it harder to recover, but do get up and get moving. The increase in blood circulation can be good for delivering nutrients to all your bodily tissues and this can also help to increase your energy level at a time you may otherwise be feeling sluggish.

3. Eat Sufficient Protein. It is normal to experience some changes in your appetite while you are not feeling so well. What you always want to make sure you are doing is eating sufficient lean protein. You want to get those amino acids in as this is what will help to preserve your lean muscle mass tissue and prevent the loss of muscle while ill.

If you are only unwell for a day or two it probably will not matter too much. But if you are ill for a week or longer and are not eating enough protein, this could start to impact you. Focus on lean sources of quality protein such as…

chicken,
steak,
eggs, and
fish.
There you have a few good health tips to keep in mind to use during cold and flu season. Even if you do get sick, do your best to make the most of it by giving your body what it requires to get you through a quick recovery.
Although managing your disease can be very challenging, Type 2 diabetes is not a condition you must just live with. You can make simple changes to your daily routine and lower both your weight and your blood sugar levels. Hang in there, the longer you do it, the easier it gets.
