Home Health Kensington San Diego, CA Agency Provides Tips for Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month

Home Health Care Agency in Kensington San Diego, CA, Firstat Nursing Services, publishes health tips on How Home Nursing Care Can Help Parents Cope with Children with Juvenile Arthritis.
SAN DIEGO - July 26, 2013 - PRLog -- Kensington San Diego, CA 92116 - “The pain and difficulties of juvenile arthritis can be overwhelming to a family,” said Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services in San Diego, CA.

“With all of the daily needs of caring for a child with arthritis, parents can feel drained, and it makes it difficult to work and spend time with other members of the family,” continued Goodrich.  Here are 3 ways home health care helps families with children affected by juvenile diabetes.

Help without Interference - Having home health care doesn’t mean that parents can’t, or even shouldn’t do any of the care necessary for their child. Of course it is a good idea to do as much as possible for them. However, getting the help needed is far better than letting important parts of life slide.

Having juvenile arthritis is mentally draining for children as well as their parents. Children often feel like they are a burden on their family, while at the same time feeling frustrated that they can’t do things for themselves. Children enjoy the attention and help they get from professional home health care providers. Having someone assist them in their exercises, help them track their medications and even do some of the routine daily care needed is a relief.

A home health care provider will never interfere with the child’s parents or other family members. They will only do as much as each family needs to make their lives easier.

Health Care Geared to Patient’s Needs - When a home health care provider comes to a patient’s home, they will develop a program specifically geared toward their needs. That means they can do as much, or as little, as necessary to make life easier for both child and parents.

Home health care providers are registered nurses and C.N.As. They will assist the child’s physician by keeping track of vital information and relaying those stats to the doctor so they can stay updated on the child’s well-being and needs. Having a home health care provider working with the doctor can also eliminate the need for many physician office visits. A doctor can easily adjust medications or treatment regimens based on the reports from the nurse.

Keeping Children Active - Children with juvenile arthritis stay more active when they have a home health care nurse getting them out and keeping them mentally and physically active. The visiting caregiver can also help the child feel more connected to society, and help them bridge the gaps between themselves and other children in their social network.

Caregivers have a wide range of community connections, and know what special programs are available in their patient’s areas. That gives them the ability to introduce the child with juvenile arthritis to activities and programs they wouldn’t otherwise have access to.
