How Home Care helps Bedridden Seniors in New Jersey, (NJ)
Bedridden patients have the same needs as any healthy person, they just need help attending to those needs. Our personal home care services help bedridden seniors to enjoy a high level of care in a familiar setting. This also helps to reduce the depression that seniors can develop due to a decrease in mobility.
We work closely with family members of the bedridden home care patient to ensure we are working together to provide home care from the heart for the patient. Many family caregivers find it helpful to hire a senior care assistant to come in a few times a week or even every day to provide the special care that they need.
Bedridden Seniors dealing with Bedsores
In addition to a decrease in mobility and a need to have personal care, housekeeping and cooking assistance met, seniors who are confined to their beds face other challenges. One of these challenges is bedsores.
The elbows, hips and spine are some of the areas of the body where bedsores develop. Therefore, caregivers must work diligently to prevent the senior from developing bedsores. Changing the senior’s position in the bed can help prevent bedsores, reduce stiffness and encourage circulation.
If bedridden elderly adults are not properly cared for, they can develop a number of health problems that can become quite serious. There are also other factors that caregivers will need to consider when providing assistance to seniors who are unable to leave their beds.
Some of the most common health problems from being bedridden include:
Urinary tract infections
Weak bones and muscles
Boost the risk of diabetes
Low blood pressure
