Find out all you need to know about health and safety checks.
Are you concerned about your well-being or the well-being of a loved one? It’s always hard to watch family members or friends struggle with health issues. You might feel helpless when they’re going through a painful illness or a change, and this is why you must focus on health and safety checks as preventative medicine.
Health & Safety Checks are perfect when you aren’t sure if someone is taking care of themselves, you question if you or your loved one is medically or psychologically stable, or when you live far away, or are traveling, and you would like someone to check-in.
Having a registered nurse complete a home visit to assess health, wellness, and safety is valuable and offers peace of mind. Visits can be completed at your or your loved one’s home, an assisted living facility, a memory care facility, a rehabilitation center, or wherever a healthcare professional check-in is needed.
It’s never too early to start thinking about the safety and health of loved ones, especially as they are aging.The aging process naturally brings changes. Some older adults may feel that they are a burden when changes appear and they may tend to disguise them.
Or the older adult may not realize that they are experiencing a change in their physical or cognitive condition. While you may want to help them with their health concerns, it may make it an uncomfortable situation for you and your loved one if you intervene. Hiring a medical professional provides an objective view and allows you to continue to be their wonderful support system. To maintain a stable medical status, regular health and safety checks are important for family members and friends.

If there are needs or risks to address, a plan is generated with instructions for the next steps. The client’s support system is informed of the plan because a team approach achieves better outcomes.
