Living with Congestive Heart Failure can be challenging, as it often alters the individual’s life.
Not only will the person affected by CHF have to change their lifestyle, but he or she will have to live with the symptoms and side effects of the heart condition. Individuals living with Congestive Heart Failure may experience a lack of appetite, shortness of breath, swollen limbs, weakness and general fatigue. This can make it difficult for them to go about their daily tasks and routines, interrupting their quality of life.
An in-home caregiver can help individuals with Congestive Heart Failure accomplish the tasks that he or she may otherwise have a hard time completing. In-home caregivers provide several nonmedical services to those with CHF and can help them feel as though they can continue to live their life to the fullest, despite their diagnosis. Nonmedical in-home caregivers can assist individuals with Congestive Heart Failure with the following:
Additionally, one of the biggest advantages to having an in-home caregiver assisting an individual living with congestive heart failure is to be aware of the signs and symptoms that the individual may need to seek medical attention for. While a caregiver is present in the home, he or she can look out for signs of a heart attack and other concerning symptoms or complications such as fluid buildup, shortness of breath or high blood pressure. In the event of a serious problem, the caregiver is trained to call for medical attention and could ultimately be the difference between the individual living or passing away due to complications from heart failure.
Hiring an in-home caregiver benefits more than just the individual living with Congestive Heart failure. The family members, or close friends, can also reap the benefits of hiring a professional caregiver to help managing Congestive Heart Failure and caring for their loved one. They may fear their loved one is in danger of experiencing a heart attack or are at risk for an extended hospital stay, causing the family and friends to feel responsible for their longevity and care plan. When a loved one is diagnosed with an illness or disease, such as heart failure, it is common for friends and family to feel as though they need to take care of them.
This is natural, but many support systems do not realize that there are options for them. Respite care is the act of a professional caregiver taking care of an individual so that their primary or familial caregiver can take a much-needed and well-deserved break from their duties as a caregiver. Respite care can allow the familial caregiver to take time to rest, recharge, go on a staycation or simply tend to the other aspects of their life that they feel may need more consideration.
Congestive Heart Failure is a very serious heart disease that heavily impacts an individual’s quality of life, outlook on life and their lifestyle. With the help of a professional in-home caregiver, he or she can continue to live a happy and healthy life, despite their condition.
