Elderly Care

Moving an elderly to a care facility

The trauma of moving an elderly or health compromised relative into a care facility, placed in the hands of relative strangers, being forced to part with pets and leaving a secure environment often leads to rapid deterioration in mental and physical health as well as extra stress for the entire family. Whether it be an elderly loved one looking to spend their golden years in comfort and care surrounded by friends and family or someone special in need of a carer to help them live their life to the fullest, Nurses on the move has the cost-wise and practical solution readily available.

Qualified nurse or caregiver

By placing a qualified nurse or caregiver in the home of a dependent, our in-home assisted living carers do their utmost to ensure that their charge is looked after, comfortable, and most importantly, remains happy and comfortable in their home. Dependents may be frail seniors, the elderly in need, those that need wound or infusion assistance, or those that require physical rehabilitation ser.

Specialized medical care for people of all ages living with a serious illness

Palliative care is a fairly recent medical specialty. It is not the same as a hospice, which serves only the dying. Instead, it focuses on improving the patient’s quality of life. It provides comfort to people of all ages with serious, chronic, and life-threatening illnesses.

These diseases include kidney failure, cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure, AIDS, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer’s, among others. Pain and difficulty in breathing are two of the most frequent and serious symptoms experienced by patients in need of palliative care.

Get qualified nursing early in the illness

Palliative care is most effective when considered early in the course of the illness. Early palliative care not only improves quality of life for patients but also reduces unnecessary hospitalizations and use of health-care services. Palliative care provides relief from the symptoms and stress of the illness. It prevents and relieves suffering through the early identification, correct assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, whether physical or psychosocial.

A team approach

Palliative care uses a team approach to support patients and their caregivers. This includes addressing practical needs and providing bereavement counselling. It offers a support system to help patients live as actively as possible.
