Homecare Agency Provides Tips For Men’s Health Month – Homecare Poway, CA

Poway Home Care Agency, Firstat Nursing Services, a homecare and home nursing company providing home health services in San Diego publishes health tips on how homecare can help improve the physical well being of senior men.
SAN DIEGO - June 24, 2013 - PRLog -- Poway, CA 92064 - “Getting older is scary for all people, but psychologists say men fear growing older for different reasons than women,” said Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services in San Diego, CA.  

“The biggest fear for most men is the worry about losing control. Having to leave the home they have worked so hard to create all their lives is a big cause of fear and stress for senior men,” continued Goodrich.  Here are just a few of the ways having home health care can help improve the health and well-being of senior men.

Falling Dangers - Being alone can also be dangerous for senior men. Slips and falls that would merely be an annoyance in youth can be devastating for a senior. Having a home health care provider either checking in daily, or living in can keep senior men safer in their own homes.

Keeping Active - The restrictions age imposes makes it harder for senior men to get out and keep up with their friends and activities. A home health care agency will provide caregivers who will take senior men to family functions, out to visit friends and local events that will keep them physically and mentally active.

Eating Right - Seniors often have a diet lacking in good nutrition. Creating healthy meals is a chore, and senior men will typically eat fast foods, or simply forget to eat altogether. A home health provider will make well-balanced meals every day so senior men can live healthier and be happier in their own home.

Healthy Hygiene - The shower is one of the most dangerous places in the home, especially for seniors. A home health caregiver will provide high-quality, sensitive hygiene care for senior men so they stay healthy, well-groomed, and looking their best. This includes showering and hair and skin care.

Medical Care - With age comes an increasing need for medical care. A qualified home health care agency will provide the appropriate level of nursing care for senior men so they can keep track of vital information, make sure medicines are taken appropriately and even get them to doctor’s appointments or to an emergency facility when needed.
