While we all made lead different lives there is one thing that we cannot escape, getting older. The idea most people have when they get older, including myself is to live on your own for as long as you can, home health care is an option to solve this problem. However this can be difficult if you do not have the proper medical services. Thankfully Walgreens has made a Home Health Care Solutions Catalog to make this process easier for people living on their own and their caregivers.
My mother and I have a personal connection to being caregivers. When my grandmother was diagnosed with stage IV throat cancer, she let us know that she wanted to be home and would rather pass peacefully there. During the time that she became bedridden and dependent on our care, we learned how difficult it was to find the items we needed to take care of her. There were so many questions and not having the answers all in one place was horrendous.
Now that she has passed on and my grandfather is ageing we are finding ourselves the caregivers for him as well. Recently my mother moved in with him and noticed a lot of things that needed to change and items that she wished she knew where to get to help improve his health. Instead of having the same troubles finding everything there is an easy solution. Many of these items can be found in the Walgreens Home Health Care Solutions Catalog.
Unfortunately one of the first things people find themselves looking for when they become caregivers, is an item that helps with mobility such as walkers or scooters. As you can see in the screenshot below from a page of the Walgreens Home Health Care Solutions Catalog, they give you the option to find different items based on the need which makes it a lot easier. You can see the different varieties and what they offer to the person you are caring for, so you can find exactly what you need!
My grandfather currently uses a walker but my mother and I have been talking about finding out our options of scooters when the time arrives. Instead of having to ask around to different people to find out how they were able to find these items we can quickly look at the catalog either online or in stores and order what we need.
A lift chair is another health improvement item we are looking into getting for him. One of my grandfathers’ favorite past time is watching his Detroit sports teams play on his tv. However it has become more difficult for him to get up on his own and this worries us because my mother is at work for 8 hours a day and Korey has therapy sessions along with my baby appointments. With all of these combined we cannot promise that we will be there for him if something should happen. He does have a device that alerts professionals if he falls but we would rather improve his situation than make him try to get up out of an uncomfortable chair.
I love that the Walgreens Home Health Solutions Catalog informs my mother and I, along with others, the information we need to know when we are shopping for a lift chair. I can honestly tell you that some of these things they reminded us would have not even been thought of if not for a wonderful catalog like this.
Taking on the role of a caregiver is a lot of responsibility but it is very satisfying seeing the ones you love in good care. Giving them the option of being able to rely on someone they trust to take care of them is much more comforting. Walgreens Home Health Solutions Catalog takes out the extra stress it can be to become a caregiver and gives you the tools you need to answer your health services questions. You can visit the catalog online or stop in at your local Walgreens to get your questions answered as well.
