There is a growing trend in the delivery of Calgary health and wellness services: the return of the house call! For Calgary seniors, there are many reasons why getting out of the house to attend a health-related appointment is challenging, so it’s important for family members and friends to understand and provide a helping hand.
Some of these challenges can include:
If leaving the house is too challenging, Calgary seniors might choose to not attend important health appointments. Over time, this can lead to delayed treatments, missed signs of disease or progressing illness and slower recovery – all to the detriment of their long-term health and wellness. An on-call Calgary mobile care service provider, who offers both convenience and accessibility, can be the right solution to this problem.
Calgary Mobile care service providers come to your Calgary home or retirement residence during a time that is convenient. They bring the required equipment, tools and testing devices with them and take the time to build strong relationships with their clients so that they understand their needs and provide quality preventative care. Working in the home, Calgary care providers get a much more realistic view of what’s happening and can create a customized plan to teach the senior and their family the skills needed for better wellness management. They’re also able to assess the safety of the home environment and address any risks or concerns they see. Examples of Calgary mobile wellness services include:
