Navigating the Caregiver’s Maze

 

Abstract: What is Home Care Giving?

As the cost of healthcare soar to its highest, the solution has gone to the basics, using strategies and resources that are almost readily available to individuals and families. Healthcare takes on the first line of defense for affordable care: The Home Caregivers. A home caregiver is an unpaid or paid person who helps another individual with impairment with his or her basic needs of maintaining activities of daily living at home. This first level of care is based on the philosophy that care giving is a natural instinct if not an innate human characteristic enabling a person to take care of himself and or others. It is also very important to note that the home is the most natural place to be taken cared of.

 

With an increasingly aging population in all developed societies, the role of caregiver has been increasingly recognized as an important one, both functionally and economically. Care giving is most commonly used to address impairments related to old age, disability, a disease, or a mental disorder that are essentially chronic in nature. Any person with health impairment might use care giving services to address their difficulties. Based on love and caring, equipped with basic instinct of survival and self preservation, Home Care-Giving in essence is improving the lives of older adults and supporting their families by lightening their load of caring for loved ones and assisting them in providing safe, competent, friendly, culturally appropriate and comfortable services.

 

Rationale & Background: 

According to an article in The Wall Street Journal on the difficulties of aging, an AARPstudy found that 88% of people 65 and older wanted to stay in their current home as long as possible (AARP Bulletin/Real Possibilities, p. 46, November 2015).

 

 Healthcare Economics:

The amount of care giving which is done as unpaid work exceeds the amount done as work for hire. In the United States, for example, a 1997 study estimated the labor value of unpaid care giving at US$196 billion, while the formal home health care work sector generated US$32 billion and nursing home care generated US$83 billion. The implication is that since so much personal investment is made in this sector, social programs to increase the efficiency and efficacy of caregivers would bring great benefit to society if they were easy to access and use.

How to Celebrate your 100th Birthday

Longevity is one of the features of the 21st century because of the advances in science, technology, medicine as well as lifestyles that are geared to self-preservation, better health and longer lives.

 

One of our nursing goals includes continued health promotion through education. More and more people are celebrating their 100th birthday. This is a sign of man’s good control over his environment, one of the paradigms of nursing.

May 13, 2014, NYC

 

The Nursing Office and The Philippine American Group for Aging Seniors of America met to discuss issues relating to the aging Filipino-Americans. Discussions included plans for establishing coalition with area nursing homes to provide programs culturally appropriate to the Filipinos to promote image of nursing homes to a community where nursing homes are the last resort to provide care.

 

Brainstorming opened up possibilities for an Adult Daycare Facility to provide services to active seniors and extend their care and stay in the comfort of their homes. And the mission goes and moves forward.
