March is Traumatic Brain Injury Awareness Month. Accredited Home Care wants you to understand how at home caregiving can help traumatic brain injury patients living in their own homes.
The Results of How Home Care Helps Traumatic Brain Injury Patients Living in Their Own Homes
Depending on the level of brain injury we offer many in home care services, including 24 hour home care. The results of at home care can lead to a stronger, more cognitive patient. We mainly focus on the patient’s specific needs & abilities to make them as independent as possible. In the end our patients are often more willing to work towards their independence because they’re at home.
5 Benefits of In Home Care for Traumatic Brain Injury Patients Living in Their Own Homes:
- Brain Healthy Diet – A ketogenic diet is a special type of diet that has shown to have excellent effects regarding brain health. Studies have proven the ketogenic diet to be an effective nutritional approach to brain health. A home care provider can prepare meals for this or other nutritional needs; creating or helping to create a brain healthy style of eating.
- Nutrition – Web MD suggests that nutrition can play a very important part in traumatic brain injury patients. This article discusses the connection between diet and TBIs.
- Brain Healthy Foods – There are some foods that are associated with brain health. Our caregivers can help add these foods to your daily diet.
- In Home Therapy – Accredited Health Care Health Services offers various types of therapies to help you gain strength and independence. Find out how physical therapy and occupational therapy helps in the recovery and independence after a TBI. The best part is that we provide therapy services in the comfort of your own home.
- Mobility – Mobility can be difficult for traumatic brain injury patients living in their own homes. Our caregivers are trained in safely assisting and moving patients who have difficulty safely moving around on their own.
- Activities of Daily Living – Many traumatic brain injury patients living in their own homes can no longer perform ADLs. Our caregivers will assist the patient while also helping to create alternative ways for them to gain more independence to perform activities themselves when possible.
- Goal Setting – Our team will help you and your loved one create goals. We will focus on recovery, independence, and quality of life in the comfort of home. Consequently, choosing to recover and maintain life at home creates a more relaxed and personal approach.
