Good caregivers don’t let patients settle or get complacent. Whether your loved one is recovering from an injury, has just had surgery, or has a chronic condition, Acara Healthcare’s in-home healthcare services focus on finding ways to keep them active and engaged in the comfort of their own home. That looks different for each person, so our Texas team listens to what you and your loved one want out of care and forms a strategy to get there. Below are just some of the ways we can help outline and achieve home healthcare goals for our patients.
Our Caregivers Provide Education
Ignorance is the source of a lot of anxiety, so we make sure all our patients have access to information about their health. Our highly experienced professionals can answer questions about care and explain our role. By knowing more about their situation, patients can then have a clearer picture of the future and start planning for it.
We can provide education and support on a variety of conditions, from diabetic care to cardiovascular care. That education is specific based on variables like your loved one’s age, health history, lifestyle, and goals. We meet them where they are so that we can determine where they can go.
Acara’s Team Helps Patients Get Specific
As part of Acara Healthcare’s personalized support to patients in South and Central Texas, we focus on more than simple goals like “getting healthy” or “managing my condition.” Instead, we’ll encourage the person in your care to create specific, attainable goals like walking a specific distance, maintaining a certain level of independence, or reducing health risks.
Even if they’re dealing with a chronic condition, we firmly believe that being intentional can improve their mindset and quality of life, which, in turn, supports good health.
In-Home Healthcare Cuts Down on Distractions
It’s natural for someone’s condition to take all their mental and physical focus, with little energy for other tasks like keeping track of medications or monitoring vitals. In-home health services are designed to take over this extra work so that patients can keep the focus where it belongs: recovering from or managing their condition.
Assistance can take the form of:
- Distributing medication at the correct times
- Performing injections
- Providing IV infusion treatments
- Checking blood pressure or other vital signs
- Conducting evaluations of progress
- Helping them around the house
- Monitoring their nutrition
- Performing or helping with everyday tasks
Your loved one will find it easier to meet goals when they can prioritize them. The Acara Healthcare team is here to make sure they can stay the course, free of extra worries.
We Prepare for the Future
For some, this means teaching patients how to manage their care over time, such as by giving them exercises to do on their own or teaching them new ways to perform tasks. For others, it’s about establishing routines, teaching them coping skills, and giving them tools to advocate for themselves. Whatever the future looks like for your family, we make sure you all feel prepared for it.
Moreover, seeing success in goals empowers patients to create new ones. We help the person in your charge reach some targets so that they know they can reach others.
