It can be difficult for retirees or their loved ones to accept the limitations that come with age or illness. However, by recognizing the issue and getting help from the proper source, retirees can continue to live their lives to the fullest regardless of what mobility challenges they face.
About Our 24-Hour Nursing Care
Once a retiree becomes a member of the Country Club At Woodland Hills, they will have access to caretakers who will handle most of their routine daily tasks. Aside from meal preparation, grooming and bathing there will also be nurses who will give them health checks and assist them with taking their medication on schedule.
Benefits of Having 24-Hour Nursing Care in Your Senior Living Community
By having 24-hour nursing care in our senior living community, there are many benefits that retirees will gain, which consists of:
Reduced Chance of Dehydration and Fainting
Studies show that dehydration is a frequent issue in aging individuals. One reason for this is because the need for thirst declines, leading to a scenario where many aren’t drinking enough water, which can lead to fainting, falls, injuries, and other medical problems. Our staff ensures that all residents are drinking enough fluids.
Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of 24-hour nursing assistance is the presence of a companion. A growing body of research suggests that aging retirees who spend more time socializing with others have a reduced risk of cognitive decline. While this doesn’t mean it will cure ailments such as Alzheimer’s or dementia, retirees will maintain a better mood with lower agitation.
We’re able to maintain the delicate balance between giving residents privacy and independence, while also being available to monitor them in case an accident or health crisis occurs. This is the essence of 24-hour nursing, to provide around-the-clock medical care to those that need it.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?
There are a number of signs that an aging retiree may be in need of 24-hour nursing care. Some of them include:
- Frequent falls due to dementia or a lack of balance
- Regularly waking up at night, or difficulty distinguishing night from day
- Recent hospitalization due to a stroke, heart attack, or hip fracture
- Confusion and fainting which results from dehydration
- Wandering away from home either by vehicle or on foot without knowing why
If you or a loved one is exhibiting any of the signs above, it may be time to relocate into a community where 24-hour assistance will be provided.
Why Choose Country Club At Woodland Hills?
Unlike other living communities, the Country Club At Woodland Hills is not a “sitting service.” Aging retirees want to be treated with dignity as they are adults rather than children. To that end, we assist residents in becoming as independent as possible by offering occupational and physical therapy programs that will enhance their mental and physical strength.
