It’s February – American Heart Month! That’s a great reminder to keep up the management of chronic disease like heart disease.
In our article about How to Help Your Elderly Loved One Manage Their Chronic Disease, we explain ways you can support your loved one and client in managing their condition.
The inconveniences of the COVID-19 pandemic have made it more complicated for our loved ones and clients to continue their normal routines. The stress of the pandemic can make health problems worse, and the health systems in some geographic areas have become overwhelmed by treating COVID-19 patients. So now more than ever, our elderly loved ones and clients need our support to stay healthy and out of the hospital!
Here are some of the ways our lifestyle coordinators and daily money managers at Care is There are helping our clients manage their chronic conditions. Think of similar ways you can help your clients or loved ones, or refer them to us if they could benefit by additional support!
- Finding new, safe ways to exercise if the gym is closed or unsafe
- Arranging food deliveries
- Arranging transportation to medical appointments when residential transportation methods are stopped or curtailed
- Arranging tele-health visits when in-person examinations are not required, and managing the technology during the appointment
- Ensuring prescriptions are filled and delivered
