Help with Changes in Health
It is not unusual for health to change because of progression of disease, condition or age. Whether you are caring for yourself or a loved one, you may not be aware of times when you need a different level of care. Ask yourself if you or your loved one are experiencing:
- A medical condition that has gone from controlled to uncontrolled.
- Trouble keeping track of medications.
- Balance problems, falls or near-falls.
- An increased number of visits to the doctor’s office or emergency department.
- Increased difficulty or needing more assistance to leave home, or avoiding errands because leaving home is too difficult.
- More difficulty performing usual activities such as bathing, dressing, toileting, food preparation, or shopping.
- Leaving home is more difficult and more assistance is needed.
- Concerns about your loved one being at home alone.
As you or your loved one experience health changes, you can turn to Christiana Care Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) for help.
