San Diego, California, April 27, 2021 – ( – Firstat Nursing Services, which provides affordable caregivers in Point Loma, shares important ways that skilled nursing home care can strengthen the independence of seniors .

“Most experts agree that older people age better at home, where they are comfortable and surrounded by familiar things,” says Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services. With the help of a trained nurse, aging loved ones can get the tools they need to stay in the home they love.

Here are 3 ways a skilled home nursing service can strengthen the independence of the elderly.

Expert medical help
Whether struggling with a chronic illness like diabetes or arthritis, many older people rely on a variety of medications and occasional injections to stay healthy. With a variety of pills and varying doses, staying on track can be tricky. With a skilled nurse on hand, families know that a medication regimen will be followed and administered correctly and safely.

Daily assistance
Home nursing services are not limited to providing medical assistance only. In fact, many visiting nurses help elderly patients with a variety of routine daily activities, from preparing meals and chores to providing safe transportation. When mobility issues prevent a loved one from moving around the home safely, having a helping hand is an invaluable asset.

Specialized care
Families often face enormous challenges in dealing with the uncertainties of complex illnesses such as Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. With the help of a skilled home nursing service, families have more energy to spend meaningful time with a loved one, stay close and connected as the disease progresses. Specially trained experts are available to meet the mental and physical needs of families and loved ones going through the difficult stages of the disease.
