One of the common types of in-home senior care provided by Home Instead of Vancouver is elder outpatient assistance. Many seniors have consistent medical, dental and lab appointments that create significant stress on aging family members. Our CAREGivers can be a great help in reducing this stress by helping your loved one before, during and after the appointments.
Before the appointment our CAREGiver makes sure that pre-appointment procedures are followed—taking medications, drinking fluids, fasting or meal coordination, etc. We can help with personal care if needed such as bathing, dressing and grooming. And we’ll make sure your loved one arrives on time and in a good state of mind for the appointment.
During the appointment, we can stay with your loved one to provide reassurance and companionship. If desired, we can take notes and report to family members about the appointment.
After the appointment, we can help schedule follow-up visits that may be required. We’ll continue to provide companionship and reassurance as we return your loved one safely home. We can pick up prescriptions and review medication requirements and schedules and any post-appointment instructions.
In short, Home Instead Senior Care of Vancouver will provide caring outpatient assistance in your absence to help your senior manage these stressful situations and give you confidence that your loved one receives all of the medical care needed.
