Preventing Hospitalization in the Elderly (Part 1)


The ultimate goal of 24-hour care in Arizona is to let clients remain at home and live comfortably for as long as possible. Most people are unaware that the comforts of home can also represent a threat as we age, and while home care can help us stay at home longer, we also want to do everything we can to make our house safe and secure so that we don’t end up in the hospital. Here are some pointers to help you avoid the hospital:

  • Physical Activity
    Including exercise in your daily routine will keep you healthy and improve your mood and energy levels, allowing you to keep going both physically and psychologically. We can achieve this with our assisted living services.
  • Nutrition
    Nutrition is vital for our overall health and keeping us out of the hospital. You can avoid several problems by getting enough vitamins and proper nutrition daily.
  • Medication Administration
    When you obtain a new medication, talk to your pharmacist about possible adverse effects, how to take it safely, and any interactions it may have with other medications you’re taking. With our personal care in Scottsdale, Arizona, we can assist you with medication management and reminders.
  • Hobbies/Socialization
    Loneliness can harm our health and motivation to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Staying active and exercising your intellect with friends and family can help you stay young. Heritage Home Care can also help you with this by scheduling companionship visits.

If you have any concerns or want assistance living more comfortably, contact our caregiver in Arizona at 480-418-4100 and talk with someone about scheduling an at-home care assessment today.
