If you or a loved one has had an auto collision, normal life is disrupted and even little things seem hard to accomplish. Having home care with routine activities and extra support when recovering from your collision can speed recovery and help you and your family cope until you are feeling better.
Part of recovery from any kind of trauma is the ability to fully rest and recover. Many of us have family and other obligations that need to be handled even when we are ill. Life’s commitments and responsibilities don’t stop for these situations which can make things even more stressful. It’s important to let go of as much as you can and let someone else take care of things in order to allow yourself to get the rest you need. Homecare can be a valuable asset at this time. Getting support at home allows you or your loved one to rest and experience a speedier, less stress-free recovery at home.
Homecare may be needed after:
• Auto collisions
• slips and falls
• work-related injuries
• hip or other fractures
• post-hospitalization recovery
• wheelchair and loss of mobility care
• bed-rest recovery care
Whether you are mobile or confined to bed, homecare can help with personal care, house keeping, and many other duties and responsibilities that require attention. Some services would be:
• prepare meals
• give medication reminders
• help with bathing and personal grooming
• change clothes
• prepare ice packs if needed
• help with mobility
• do laundry or wash dishes
• perform other light household chores
• provide 24-hour care, if needed
If you have any loss of mobility due to an auto collision, home visits from a compassionate professional caregiver can be a great help to someone who has experienced such a traumatic event.
