From Caregivers to Family: The Significance of Home Healthcare on National Family Day
The idea behind National Family Day is to celebrate all aspects of the people who make up a family. While some family members will be parents, children, grandparents, and other relatives, other members of a family are those who support and care for us, even though we are not related.
Held on the fourth Monday in September, the goal of this day is to celebrate and recognize those people who make up your family, including relatives, friends, and those who provide essential services.
The Transformation from Home Healthcare Caregiver to Essential Family Member
Capital City Nurses specializes in providing compassionate, caring,and highly skilled home health care services in Fredrick, MD, and the surrounding areas. Initially, our staff provides a full assessment of the needs of the senior, and then we develop a customized plan for home care services to support the senior.
We focus on creating consistent staffing for our clients, which means the senior and the caregiver get to know each other on a much deeper level. Our caregivers provide personalized support and in-home care that help the seniors stay engaged, active, and safe. The compassionate nursing services and the genuine care for the individual quickly transform the relationship from simply a caregiver to an essential member of the family.
Medical Care and Beyond
We are often called in to assist with rehab and post-op support for seniors, which can include help with physical therapy, getting to and from appointments, and assistance with activities of daily living. As part of these services, we also offer medication management, which is helpful to both the senior and the family members.
Our services go beyond basic medical care. Our home healthcare services include emotional support for both the senior and the family. We work with seniors to learn relaxation, meditation, and mindfulness techniques that help manage depression and assist with Alzheimer's and dementia care.
Supporting the Family and the Senior
Caring for an elderly parent or family member is not always easy for the family. Our companionship care professionals are here to help the family navigate challenges and to provide resources and guidance. The trained caregivers at Capital City Nurses can answer questions and help the family with everything from planning proper nutrition to creating a safe home environment as the needs of the senior change.
Our caregivers have a heart for what they do. They talk to the seniors, do things to engage their clients, and make sure to bring a smile to everyone's face. They are passionate about making the best life possible for the senior and the family, and in doing so, they become a trusted individual that is an ally in every sense of the word.
The caregivers at Capital City Nurses are the unsung heroes for many families caring for elderly parents and family members. On National Family Day, celebrating the caregiver as part of the family is a wonderful way to express your gratitude for the work they do, their dedication to your loved one, and their hard work in providing the support needed.
