NEWSLETTER HOME CARE VS INPATIENT REHABILITATION

HOME CARE VS INPATIENT REHABILITATION
Mind & Mobility Home Care Centers Empowering YOU To Take Charge of Your Home Independence
1. External conflicts: Dealing with other patients or demanding staff. 2. Internal conflicts: Mental or emotional issues like the loss of home connection, depression, dementia and/or delirium. 3. Boredom: Not having what your mom needs to pass the time during this turbulent time. Sometimes, the simplest solution is the most sensible: Home Care. Staying at home during this time eliminates the unfamiliarity of multiple caregivers (your loved one may choose her caregiver) and she knows where her book she’s reading is, knows where her creative project is (right where her easy chair and blanket are). There are no other patients or clients and only one caregiver who she needs to work through her physical therapy or other issues with. Moreover, when a senior adult, especially when dealing with unpredictable drug interactions, can be depressed and suffer from delirium (which is often misdiagnosed as dementia). These issues happen with regularity at inpatient rehabilitation facilities. Recovering in your home, as opposed to an inpatient rehabilitation facility, removes unnecessary barriers to recovery. And your mom will be much happier when she’s visited by her family, friends and neighbors – in her very own HOME, SWEET HOME. Call 800.650.5289 to learn more about our Home Care services.
Dear Valued Client,
Yet consider the plight of the mature adult who has been removed from her comfortable home and surroundingsandplopped intoa rehabilitation facility, where she knows no one. She’s staring at bare walls,

meeting unfamiliar people for the first time. And making demands that make her confused and frustrated. Plus, your mom, or whoever had transported her, may have forgotten what she needed or wanted at home: the book she’d been reading, her latest crochet project or her favorite blanket. Her goal of getting better has already taken several huge hits. The health care professional who authored the article “5 Problems that Arise during Inpatient Rehabilitation,” maintains that other key issues that can exist for your loved one that can throw up road blocks. Here are three others besides “forgetting something,” and the abrupt change to a new temporary home.

1. Aim for lucky number seven. Young and middle-age adults who slept 7 hours a night have less calcium in their arteries (an early sign of heart disease) than those who sleep 5 hours or less or those who sleep 9 hours or more. 2. Keep the pressure off. Get your blood pressure checked every 3-5 years if you’re 18-39. If you’re 40 or older, or if you have high blood pressure, check it every year. 3. Slash saturated fats. To help your heart’s arteries, cut down on saturated fats, which are mainly found in meat and full-fat dairy products. Choose leaner cuts and reduced-fat options. 4. Find out if you have diabetes. Millions of people don’t know that they have this condition. That’s risky because over time, high blood sugar damages arteries and makes heart disease more likely. 5. Think beyond the scale. Ask your doctor if your weight is OK. If you have some pounds to lose, you’ll probably want to change your eating habits and be more active. 6. Clean up. Your heart works best when it runs on clean fuel.That means lots of whole, plant-based foods (like fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds) Do What’s Good For The Heart!
