The Doctor Wants What?
Upon leaving the hospital with a loved one, the common feeling is “what now?” and how do we avoid this from happening again?
The doctor prescribes a list of changes that need to occur. These new tasks will get your loved one back to health. These new routines will help them stay out of the hospital. This innocent looking list seems easy, but you know better.
The doctor’s orders do not put the actual changes in motion. Paper procedures and prescriptions do not keep those new routines consistent. Your loved one needs your help to build a new routine; a new lifestyle.
You know what needs to happen. Now for the execution.
Add a voice recording when it is time to take the new medication.
Schedule an early wake up reminder before each therapist visit this month.
Let SimpleC help you give the aid and support your loved one deserves.
It’s challenging to provide pleasant personal care. There are so many tasks to do and so little time to do them. Care can be hard. Sometimes the person does not feel like doing a task. Sometimes they get confused by a new pill or routine. Plans of care are difficult to perform when everyone is not on the same page.
One of the toughest parts of caregiving is the repetition. You don’t like repeating yourself again and again. Your loved one does not like getting constant instructions. No one wants to be dependent.
Aging and illness cause complexity and change. Your loved one’s lifelong routine no longer works. Routines must evolve. Commitments must adjust. This leads to more change and more difficulties.
