Some examples of care I have provided. Plan physical exercise, prepare meals of proper nutrition. Plan daily activities to help provide structure, meaning, and a sense of accomplishment for the patient. As functions are lost, adapt activities and routines to allow the patient to participate as much as possible. Keep activities familiar and satisfying, and keep instructions simple. Allow patient to complete as many things as possible by herself. Provide "cues" for desired behavior. Keep the patient out of harm's way by removing things that could endanger them. Transport patient to and from medical as well as social service appointments. I have worked with many aliments including renal failure, various cancer, heart and blood pressure issues and so much more. For me this is about helping them live fulfilling, enjoyable and dignified senior years. Over the years I have helped many families and have worked in and around the medical profession.
