Home Care is the Future of Health Care

The Future 

Have you wondered what the future would be like?  Giant, talking robots that we hope do not turn into killer terminators built by Skynet, flying cars that can avoid the messy situation with rush hour traffic, or maybe instant blow drying vests and nike shoes like the ones Marty McCfly had in Back to the Future.

If Back to the Future taught us something, is that times change.  Time never stops and humans continue to progress with advances that are aimed to give us more enjoyable life spans. Technology is at our fingertips with our phones, tablets, and any other gadgets we have access to  We can communicate across long distances.  Doctors have been known to perform operations on patients from the other side of the planet using technology.  With technology, comes the improvement of health care.  The two subjects go hand in hand because without one the other cannot be sustained. Technology requires the world to require its usage while health care needs technology to improve its measures.

Health Care in Your Home

Home care is the future of health care.  Imagine a world without waiting in boring lobbies for hours to be tended to with cheesy soap operas on television or outdated magazines to keep you entertained. Envision a special care that caters to your every need. Instant care done right like instant noodles except without the flavor!

There is a reason why millions of families across the states have considered home care. It’s because they see the value in its benefits in having an instant care services that is readily available.  As technology advances to better help the health care industry, the more secure this type of care is.

Here is an example.  Did you know there are sophisticated programs that can predict when a patient requires a routine check up.  Could you imagine having someone at your door a day before you get a cold?  It’d be madness to believe that you could receive care even before you need it, but the thought of being prepared, is one of the best feelings. You’d never have to worry about taking a late night trip to get medicines you may have forgot the day before.

Home Health Care and the Future 

The need for care services in the home has increased due to the rising population of the baby boom generation.  This is partially the reason.  Having seen the benefits first hand, it beats staying in a nursing home facility away from home, and it’s proven more cost effective then spending long nights at the hospital.  The combination of both home care services and technology have made strides in health care itself.

I may not be able to predict the future.  However, I do see the medical field evolving with home health care as driving force behind the revolution.

 

Home Care Agencies are an Outlet for Families Dealing with Disabilities

In the United States, according to the 2015 Census, one out of five Americans live with a disability.  There is a one out of ten chance that those disabilities are severe.  These disabilities involve several different diagnosis, and they can sometimes be permanent. While the number of those who are disabled continue to remain at a staggering number, the care and resources available for them is available.

Home care agencies throughout the United States provide a necessary outlet for concerned loved ones who may have someone close to them with a disability. This affliction does not have to define the individual or restrict the ability to live at home independently.  What home care agencies give is a peace of mind that can enable families to grow and concern themselves with more practical stress.

The Advantages

There are several advantages to considering a home care agency as a primary source care provider.

  • Being at home, can be the best medicine for someone living with a disability.  They will continue to have a familiar social life with family members and friends.
  • With a live-in care, the needs of the patient are met individually.  A professional provides detailed instructions to well-trained caretakers to give the individual the specific, individualized medical attention they need in order to get better or to maintain their health.
  • There is a level of companionship provided.  Caregivers or Home Health Aides are well known for their companionship services that have a positive outcome for the patients they care for.
  • The independence of the individual is maximized by adjusting specific areas and care for their needs without inflicting on their need to feel independent.
  • Home care is affordable

You’re not Alone

You’re not alone.  While there may be countless of resources on the internet and home care agencies to choose from, the process can be simplified with the right help. The decision should not be thought of as a single person process.  There are multiple agencies and specialists that are educated in giving families the best resources to achieve maximum care plus a more enjoyable lifestyle.

4 Reasons to be Grateful on Mother’s Day

“Mom, Momma, Mommy, Mama, Ma…”

The millions of ways we call for our mothers.  Mother’s day is reminder of a beauty in most of our lives.  Bringing us joy as children and being our number one support through our troubles, mothers around the globe represent a harmony that can not be replaced.  Their special ability to bring change through our youth is one to be valued and respected.

While shopping for my mom this week, I took a moment to reflect on why I was grateful for mother’s day.  My mind replayed a series of flashbacks of the sacrifices my mother made to give me a better future.  The most significant memory was what she did for me to get me to college.  She worked long, back-breaking hours in a factory, making minimum wage, and with no comforts of AC or Heating, to reassure that my brother and myself received a proper education. 

These were the four reasons I am grateful for mother’s day. 

Unconditional Love 

The instant we are born our mothers protect us.  They hold us close.  They nurture us.  In her arms, the universe is a divine, and her love for you unconditional. There is no better nurse, doctor, or medicine.

Trust 

If the world was against you, your mother would not be one of them.  A mother has a unique bond with their child and while the world may not necessarily believe in her child’s honesty, she will never think otherwise.  It’s a type of blindness that is pure and just.

Support 

As we get older, we become aware of the hardships that our mothers shielded us from when we were children.  They can not do this forever.  Eventually, we are forced to face these problems head on, but not alone!

Sacrifice

Mothers will sacrifice everything to ensure that their children have the best in life. They go through measurable amount of pain to give life to us. They’ll work long hours, push aside their goals, and put their kids first.   This a special heroism that goes unnoticed, yet it is one of the reasons humanity progressed.

I thank mother’s day because it gives me a chance to at least “try” to repay her, but I know I will never come close.
