Vancouver Home Healthcare Agency is an agency of caring, and we strive to deliver the most services possible. Therefore, we offer a number of additional services to complement our excellent health care capabilities. At times, families need more than a professional to come into the home to help a loved one. When a loved one needs home health care, the family as a whole is affected, from the patient to the youngest child, who may not understand what is happening. Take advantage of some of our additional services to not only care for the patient, but also for anyone associated with the patient. We offer a number of services to assist the family as a whole, as well as additional services to keep the patient as comfortable as possible.
Choosing the right home healthcare agency are important factors to consider that significantly influence a patient’s treatment. The preferred choice for many patients is choosing private care.
At Vancouver Home Health Care Agency, Caring and Compassion is our business.
Telephone services are available 24/7. This is especially important when dealing with medications and the possibility of drug dependency. Drug dependency can happen slowly, especially with prescribed drugs, because dependency happens slowly. If any dependency symptoms appear, phone services are available to assist with the issue. Dependency signs are, but are not limited to:
- Intense urges for the drug
- Actions not normal to get the drug
- Emotional changes when the drug isn’t available
- Changes in the person if the drug is removed
Overdosing on drugs is so easy that a growing number of seniors are facing this issue. It’s easy to accidentally take too much medication. A senior could forget that he or she has already taken the medication, or could misunderstand the dosage instructions.If a person has overdosed, transport to the emergency room immediately. Only minor first aid for an overdose can be done at home; often, the drug must be removed medically to help stop the body’s reaction to the drug.
Avoiding a drug overdose requires diligence. Family members can check a loved one’s drug intake to ensure the correct amount is taken. Your medical professionals and the team at Vancouver Home healthcare agency will help to monitor and prevent a drug overdose episode.
