Benefits for In-Home Care for Veterans
Home care services can help gaps for veterans adjusting to civilian life after their service. A qualified in-home care nurse can provide veterans with continuous care, monitor health symptoms, and make sure they’re as comfortable as possible in their environment.
Caregivers are trained to help veterans with a number of things, including basic care needs like taking medicines, eating meals, and hygiene. In-home caregivers can also support more complex care needs such as managing PTSD symptoms and pain management.
Here are just some of the benefits available for Veterans with In-Home Care
- In-home Care for Everyday Tasks like shopping and cooking
- Providing a nutritious home-cooked meal can make a big difference to a veteran’s overall health and well-being.
Compared to people who haven’t served, research shows that veterans have a higher Body Mass Index (BMI) and are less likely to eat a nutritionally well-rounded diet.
- In-Home Care can help Veterans follow a diet that’s low in saturated fats—but high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, dairy, nuts, and lean sources of protein.
- Better heart health: Eating leafy greens, berries, and omega-rich protein like salmon can lower the risk of heart disease and stroke.
- In-Home Care Helps Veterans Managing Existing Conditions: While you should always consult with a doctor about your health needs, limiting processed foods and focusing on a nutritious diet can help manage other health conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure.
- Veterans can turn to caregivers for grocery shopping, meal planning, and anything else they require—even dish washing.
Adjusting to Civilian Life
Returning to civilian life can be an adjustment for many veterans. All of the places they liked to go, people they used to see, and activities they once enjoyed can feel different and strange after being away and in combat.
In- Home care for veterans help them stay active within their community. Veterans can re-enter their community at their own pace, and with someone who understands their situation.
In addition to helping veterans rebuild confidence, in-home caregivers can help with the practical necessities of daily life.
From driving to doctor’s appointments, or a grocery store that’s out of walking range, caregivers will make sure veterans have their social and transportation needs met.
