Skilled Nursing Agency in Rancho Santa Fe Provides Tips for Healthy Aging Month

Home Care and Skilled Nursing Agency in Rancho Santa Fe, CA - Firstat Nursing Services, Shares Health Tips on How In Home Nursing Care Can Help Seniors Stay Healthy While Aging.
RANCHO SANTA FE, Calif. - Sept. 24, 2013 - PRLog -- Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92067 - “As we age, our bodies make it more difficult to accomplish some of the more complicated aspects of daily life, and can even make living alone or as an elderly couple dangerous,” said Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services in San Diego, CA.

“A home nursing care service can provide for all of those needs and help protect seniors in their homes so that they can live long, happy lives in the place they love,” continued Goodrich.  Here are 3 ways a home nurse can help seniors stay healthy.

Meals without Stress - A quality home nursing service will provide the resources for making sure elderly people get the nutritionally valuable meals they need to stay healthy. A caregiver can come to the home and cook meals, or arrange for regular delivery of meals to the home so they are ready to eat whenever desired.

A home care nurse will supervise the patients in their care to make sure they are maintaining the proper weight and vitality they should be. A home nursing service eliminates the very real danger of fires or burns from cooking, and makes it much easier and safer for people to live at home as they age.

Healthy Mind and Healthy Body - Physical therapy is part of the way a home nursing service keeps elderly patients safer and healthier in their home. The home nursing provider can also evaluate each individual’s physical condition and make a routine of regular exercise that will keep seniors in the best shape possible.

Providing the help needed to take regular walks in the fresh air when possible, and showing elderly patients simple, easy to do exercises for days when they can’t get out is a great way to stay fit. If necessary the nurse will help their elderly charges accomplish the exercises each day, making sure that muscles and joints remain as strong as they can be, but avoiding injuries.

Keeping in Touch and Staying Active - Elderly individuals living alone often lose touch with friends and family due to limited ability to get around. A home nursing care provider can make sure that the elderly patient gets out of the house and stays in contact with the people they love.

Nursing staff will also show their elderly patients what programs are available in their communities to encourage activity and social interactions. The nursing care provider can take each patient to their activities as well as getting them to important doctor’s appointments and making sure they get to see family and relatives whenever possible.
