New England home care services are popular as ever. It’s easy to see why when you think about the affordability, individualized care, and success rate of healing. Who wants to be poked and prodded in the hospital, where you are supposed to be resting, when you can quietly be getting back to health at home?
It is natural to view home health care as services you use when you are ill or injured, but home care can also be a part of preventive care measures to keep you healthy. CNAs, LNAs, Personal Support Specialists, and other forms of professional caregivers do more than rehabilitate. Just take a look as the services MAS Home Care provides that can keep you safe, healthy and out of the hospital.
These services can be especially helpful to dementia and Alzheimer’s disease patients, who have trouble with decision making and processing information. Having someone to monitor food freshness or prepare your meals for you can prevent kitchen injuries as well as ensure you get a fresh, healthful dinner on the table. Prescription pick-up and medication reminders guarantees you will have the medication you need when you need it. Are transportation logistics keeping you from your doctor’s appointments? Our caregivers will get you there on time for that check-up.
Not only do caregivers perform preventive measures by doing household tasks and giving reminders, but as health care professionals they can spot the signs of illness or injury probably before you can. Their trained eyes know when to looking into symptoms in more depth.
