This time of year often brings many to feel excitement as the holidays approach, visitors arrive and temperatures being to cool down. It is also the season, however, when certain illnesses, such as the flu, are increasingly reported. Bacteria and viruses can spread through human contact, touching germ-ridden surfaces and even the air we breathe. While it is important for everyone to do what they can to prevent feeling under the weather, some individuals are even more susceptible than others to fall ill. Children, seniors and those who are immunocompromised face greater risks.
Here at Aqua Home Care, we understand the importance of maintaining one’s health all year round. We also understand that, for some, assistance may be needed to do so most effectively. Those who receive daily living support benefit from having a caregiver nearby to meet their everyday needs. One’s general state may also benefit from in-home care services that aim to promote health and wellness, prevent the spread of germs and proactively help maintain healthy living, such as:
- Heavy housecleaning – disinfecting surfaces, washing linens, mopping, cleaning bathrooms, etc.
- Transportation – providing transportation to doctor’s appointments to monitor health
- Personal care – assistance keeping up with proper hygiene such as bathing, washing hands, brushing teeth, changing soiled clothing, etc.
- Medication reminders – offering reminders when medication is needed
Being mindful and taking measures to prevent illness is imperative, especially for those who may be more at risk. In-home caregivers can help support wellness by assisting with the implementation of such preventative measures. For reliable care at home, give our team at Aqua Home Care a call. We refer trusted caregivers who will be there to meet your everyday needs as well as offer support to apply healthy practices.
