In-Home Care for COPD Seniors
Amada caregivers have the training to support a senior COPD patient in limiting flare-ups and motivating self-care.
The knowledeable caregiving team at Amada NorthShore is here to help provide long-term care for seniors living with COPD, a challenging condition that is one of the leading causes of hospitalizations among the elderly. If you or a senior loved one need professional COPD home care, please contact us today for a Free Care Needs Consultation. As part of our personalized caregiving services, Amada NorthShore offers home care for our senior COPD clients and respite care for their families in Lake Forest, Libertyville, Highland Park, Northbrook, Glen View, Park Ridge, Wilmette, Evanston, and surrounding Chicago NorthShore communities.
Managing COPD at home can be especially tricky for the loved ones of a senior patient because the main components of the disease — dyspnea (shortness of breath) and fatigue — greatly interfere with or limit activities of daily living (ADLs). The Amada caregiving team understands there’s a high probability that a senior managing COPD symptoms will experience a COPD flare-up (an exacerbation of symptoms) that needs immediate attention.
The compassion and support Amada caregivers provide to senior COPD clients and their families in Lake Forest, Libertyville, Highland Park, Northbrook, Glen View, Park Ridge, Wilmette, Evanston, and surrounding Chicago NorthShore communities can make a difference in helping a senior loved one maintain his or her health, as well as inspire a positive outlook, especially if symptoms should worsen. In addition, senior COPD sufferers supported by an in-home caregiver often are more motivated to follow their prescribed pulmonary rehabilitation plan.
Amada caregivers are trained to:
• Assist the senior COPD client with exercise prescribed as part of pulmonary rehabilitation.
• Help with medication reminders and know how important it is for seniors with COPD who often take multiple medications at various times daily.
• Skillfully and patiently provide practical help with everyday activities like meal preparation, dressing, light housekeeping, walking and others.
• Know that their COPD home care clients often are dealing with chronic pain, and thus avoid taking the senior COPD client’s irritability or bad mood personally.
At Amada Senior Care NorthShore, we understand that senior COPD clients and their families make better care decisions when they’re aware of all their options for long-term COPD home care and respite care.
