During November, the home care and hospice community honor the millions of nurses, home care aides, therapists, and social workers who make a remarkable difference for the patients and families they serve. These heroic caregivers play a central role in our health care system and in homes across the nation. And as the Baby Boomers age, the role of the home health care worker will become increasingly important.
Caregivers are not always paid. A family member who cares for a parent or child who is sick or has a chronic condition may not get the support they need. If you're one of these caregivers, we honor you, too!
The good news is....Support groups are available, and Meridian Home Care offers respite care (short-term, with no long-term commitment) to help provide a break if needed, especially during the busy and stressful holiday season that is upon us. Please do not hesitate to call us (858-529-1886) if you need help.
Our caregivers are available:
- Assistance with daily grooming and hygiene needs.
- Assistance with bathing and showering.
- Assistance with walking, mobility and prescribed exercises.
- Preparation of nutritious meals.
- Transportation to doctor appointments.
- Assistance in attending outside social events.
- Medication reminders.
- Perform light housekeeping and homemaker services.
- Respite care for family. (Giving your temporary relief of caretaking for your loved one full time).
So in honor of National Home Care & Hospice month, Meridian Home Care would like to recognize all of our dedicated and hard-working caregivers for your efforts. You make our world a better place. Thank you!
