Safety At Home: Protecting From Falls

Safety At Home: Protecting From Falls
Comments Off on Safety At Home: Protecting From Falls

When protecting your loved one from falls – especially in the middle of the night – becomes the core of care, your family will need the right care team. A care team that is flexible, responsive, and trustworthy gives you the peace-of-mind you need to stay home during periods of recovery or late-life care.

 

YOUR TEAM:

 

The Family Best Care team is comprised of qualified professionals with years of caregiving experience. We have registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, certified nursing assistants, home-care aides and live-in caregivers on staff — all licensed by the state of Washington and screened twice for security.

 

Before anyone becomes part of our team, they also undergo a rigorous selection process that includes an evaluation of their sincerity and desire to care for others. We expect and train our staff to look beyond medical challenges — and see patients as members of our extended family.

 

YOUR CARE:

 

When transitioning from the support of doctors and nurses in a hospital or skilled nursing facility to being at home, it can create anxiety in the caregivers. Will they be able to keep up with medication management? Prescription management? Bathing and bathroom assistance? Companionship?

 

In-home care with Family Best Care alleviates this worry. Our team works closely with your medical team to make sure that you’re getting the best care you need, from the comforts of your own home.

 

YOUR HOME:

 

We don’t take over; we support your style and make it comfortable for you to recover in the comfort of familiar surroundings. In the case of recovery, being in familiar surrounds leads to a faster recovery time. When you are in your familiar surroundings your body is able to rest and relax in a way that allows the body to heal. When you have the peace-of-mind that things like rides and medication management are being taken care of, you can rest that much deeper.
