Decisions are plentiful when it comes to elderly care solutions. And making informed decisions can be overwhelimg, not to mention moving to a new community to help you with your needs can be nerve-racking. You don’t want to move to one community and find it doesn’t suit you, and then have to move to another one. That’s why it’s important to know who you should turn to when it comes to finding the right place for this stage of your life.
Recommendations from Doctors for Elderly Care Solutions
It is important to seek help from your doctor when it comes to elderly care services. You need to know what assistance is needed based on your health conditions.
People suffering from dementia often need help with remembering medications, if they have a number of them to take each day. Some medications must be taken daily at the same time, while others can be taken at any time of the day, and it isn’t a serious health concern if a dose is missed. Depending on the medications you’ve been prescribed, you may need to have someone administer the medication to you or just check each day to see if you took them.
This is why a doctor’s appointment to see what your needs are is important.
Does this mean that the doctor is the best person to recommend elderly care solutions? Probably not.
While your health is a critical piece of the care you need, there are other factors that need to be considered and addressed. These other factors are likely beyond the scope of what your doctor can confidently weigh on for his or her recommendations.
For instance, you may need more social interaction than you are receiving right now. While your doctor may know this, it may not know which elderly care facilities will provide you with this part of your well-being.
This is the reason you need to not only consult with your doctor, but with an elder care consultant.
