We Build The Perfect Self-Health Care Day Routine For Your Seniors In Great Falls, VA

One of the most important aspects of caring for a senior is to create routines that are consistent and practical. This is particularly true for seniors who may have difficulty remembering daily activities or those with an early or advanced stage Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis.

Developing these routines is not always easy for the family, and it can create challenges for caregivers without training and expertise in senior self-health care. Self-care is essential for physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health and wellness throughout life. Often a senior may have difficulty in prioritizing self-care, which is where our team of nurses and compassionate, professional caregivers at Capital City Nurses can provide invaluable support.

How Does Capital City Nurses Evaluate Self-Care Needs for Seniors?

Senior care programs at Capital City Nurses in Great Falls, VA always start with a full assessment and evaluation of the senior. This is completed by a dedicated RN with years of experience in senior care services. This assessment is used to develop a unique, customized, and personalized plan to assist the senior through a variety of in-home care services.

Each of the recommendations for the in-home care plan is designed to prioritize self-care for your loved one. Our caregivers will support your elderly parent or family member in personal care requirements, including bathing, personal hygiene, dental care, dressing, toileting, and grooming. Often, seniors are embarrassed or feel they are being a burden in asking the family for help with these personal care requirements. Working with our home health care professionals with a regular routine helps seniors to feel good about themselves and to have the support they need without having to ask the family.

One of the important parts of self-health care we offer is found in our senior companionship component of our services. Our caregivers spend time talking with your loved ones, helping them get out in the community, use technology, and to stay connected with important people in the senior’s life. Companionship care also includes accompanying the senior to social events, doctor’s appointments, or on other errands to help the senior stay active, involved, and independent.
