Special Care Services
Interim Provides Support for Special Care at Home
There are some conditions which require special care. Interim understands that when adults or children have special needs due to an illness or injury it can be overwhelming. Interim offers full time or respite care to help with special medical conditions. Care professionals can accommodate the needs of many special physical and mental conditions while supporting family members.
With our in-home care services, we provide a customized regimen of care that focuses on individual needs and personal environments. Some of these special care conditions include:
Alzheimer’s and Dementia
While much research is being conducted to understand the disease, there is currently no cure for Alzheimer's. However, doctors can prescribe a number of medications to treat certain symptoms. Medications can be prescribed for memory loss symptoms, behavioral changes such as aggression and sleep problems caused by the disease. Many people with Alzheimer's or dementia require a full-time caregiver as well. This is where Interim can play a vital role.
Home Care Services for Alzheimer's and Dementia Clients and Families
Interim has extensive experience in helping individuals and their families live with Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia. We can customize a program that:
- Provides medication reminders, assistance or administration
- Helps with the daily activities of living such as bathing and dressing
- Provides relief to the individual’s caregivers by assisting with routine home management issues such as housekeeping or laundry.
- Creates and maintains a safe and calm environment.
While there is currently no cure for diabetes, the disease can be effectively managed with medications and a change in diet and exercise. An important part of treatment is maintaining a healthy weight. Although there is no typical or strict "diabetes diet," it is recommended to eat foods that are high in nutrition and low in
calories - like fruits, whole grains and vegetables - instead of fatty, sugary foods. Physical activity is also a must to manage weight, lower blood sugar levels and increase the body's sensitivity to insulin. People with diabetes should aim for at least 30 minutes of aerobic activity most days of the week. Medications and monitoring of blood sugar levels will be a part of life for people with diabetes. Depending on the condition, blood sugar should be monitored several times a day or several times a week. In addition, many people need insulin therapy throughout the day or may need to take other oral or injected medications to manage the condition.
Home Care Services Diabetics
At Interim HealthCare we understand that living with diabetes may be challenging. From establishing a healthy lifestyle to managing blood sugar and insulin levels, the disease may require extra care outside regular visits to the doctor or after a stay in the hospital. Interim HealthCare has experience in helping individuals and their families live with diabetes. Our home healthcare professionals can visit people with diabetes in their homes or at assisted living communities to provide care or supplement a healthcare regimen.
