My story on,why I am in home care

My story on,why I am in home care

My first job at 14 years old was working with the elderly. I had landed a job at a nursing home in Southwest Florida, as a dietary aid. I remember working there and feeling happy helping those in need. Throughout my teenage years, I was working in either nursing homes or assisted living homes…. I enjoyed being around the residents.,,,,, Listening to their stories and helping them in any and all needs. It came so natural to me, to give and care for others.

I also remember my mother telling me of my grandmother in Peru, how she had someone there to care for her in her home. This always stood in the back of my mind….. How one day I will have to either be there for my parents or hire someone to help them at home. I wanted to learn more of the process…how, why, what, when…it seemed to be a very important decision and process that I should know more about.

Now, at this time, I also have a parent who is in their 80s, lives alone, has some health conditions, and lives far from family. So, I understand and relate to how some of the families or clients may feel or have thoughts on.

I have the desire to help all parties involved; client, families, caregivers, other resources, etc. We all want care.. good quality care… for our loved ones! I want to be part of that process… to help ensure that all people are comfortable, happy, learning, growing, and being! …I want that for my parents, grandparents….I would want that for any one! We are here to help and care for one another, and this is one way that I can offer my help, because it is my passion!

Diabetes and the Elderly

Diabetes and The Elderly

According to the American Diabetes Association, more than 25% of adults 65 and older, have diabetes. At times symptoms of diabetes are over looked in Seniors, because they are grouped into symptoms of “normal aging”.

Two types of diabetes:

  1. Type 1 Diabetes – Is when a person cannot produce insulin. This type can affect adults as well as children.
  2. Type 2 Diabetes – Is when a person’s body becomes insulin resistant. This is the more common type

It is vital to have your blood sugar level checked regularly to assess if you are  pre-diabetic. This is when sugar levels are elevated but no so elevated to qualify for Diabetic diagnosis.

If you are pre-diabetic, to decrease your risk of becoming Diabetic a life style change will need to be initiated. Exercise and eating a healthy diet will decrease your risk of diabetes.
