It might be difficult to assist your loved one in recovering from a hospital stay caused by illness, a fall, or another event. It takes time, effort, focus, and, most importantly, patience. A skilled nursing community is a residential community where individuals get 24-hour care as their health deteriorates or improves.
Skilled nursing is a patient’s requirement for care that only licensed nurses, not caretakers, can provide. Complicated wound dressings, tube feedings, and rehabilitation are examples of care.
Many of our loved ones have a list of prescriptions they must take regularly, depending on their health, to assist them to manage common illnesses like diabetes, high cholesterol, and so on. Following a stroke, a fall, or a catastrophic illness, the number of daily medications that they take will only grow, making it impossible to keep track of each one’s dosage. Every resident’s medication regimen will be tracked by a skilled nursing facility, ensuring that each dose is given on time and in the correct amount.
In-house Physical Therapy and Activity
Mobility is important for our loved one’s health, especially for individuals who have recently recovered from an injury. Unfortunately, our elderly loved ones who live alone are more likely to become inactive as a result of the risk of falling or a lack of motivation. Physical therapy and various physical exercises are provided by skilled nursing communities to keep them moving at whatever level they are able, helping them to regain movement in joints injured by an accident and/or retain function.
Balanced Diet and Nutrition
Nutrition is important at any age, but it is especially important during recovery. Seniors who live alone and are recovering from a health problem will have limited movement, making it difficult (if not impossible) for them to cook healthy meals at home. A retirement community with expert nursing will make a range of delectable meals to meet each individual’s dietary needs while monitoring their caloric needs.
Spiritual and Social Support
Sudden health changes can be stressful for our loved ones, especially if they are unable to do most of the activities they used to love. Isolation can lead to depression, which might make it difficult for them to recover. Your loved one will be surrounded by nurses, team members, and other residents who can provide social and spiritual support while living in a skilled nursing community. It is critical for both physical and mental well-being to maintain a positive attitude.
Peace of Mind
Although you may want to be around your loved ones every day as they heal from an illness or accident, your living arrangement, employment, or other duties may prevent you from doing so. Knowing they are safe, comfortable, and under surveillance can give you peace of mind as you go about your day. Visits are, of course, always welcome and encouraged.
