When integrated into the continuum of care, home health helps ensure that patients discharged from acute care settings and skilled nursing facilities do not suffer relapses that require rehospitalization.

Home care is a critical link. When patients go home, often they are not fully ready to care for themselves, or they have rehab needs and nursing needs to fully complete their recovery. Home health plays an important role because if needs are not met, the patient is likely to suffer a setback and go back to the hospital or another care setting.

There are few simple pleasures in life that feel quite as nice as stepping outside and getting a deep breath of fresh air. Science shows that going outside does more than just feel good, too — it can have some very surprising health benefits. Here are 5 reasons you should spend more time outside:

1. It helps to clear out your lungs 🫁
2. It can give you more energy and mental focus 🧠
3. It lowers blood pressure and heart rate 🫀
4. It helps you heal faster from an injury or illness 🤕
5. It can help to improve your digestion 🍽

Fresh air and sunlight can help improve our well-being across multiple areas, from making us feel happier and more relaxed, to having a measurable effect on our circulatory systems, recovery time, and overall health. If you find yourself feeling stressed, tired, sluggish, or even just bloated, step outside and take a few good, deep breaths of fresh air. Your body and your mind will thank you.

At Nurses on Demand, we’ve designed a care service specifically for the purpose of giving you a break so you can focus on your own personal health.

Here are a few situations where you can take advantage of our relief/respite care services:

•An emergency arises and you need some time to address the problem.
•You’re a single parent with a child with medical needs and you would like to free up an evening for a date.
•You’re trapped at work and need someone to care for a loved one.
•You’re exhausted from working a full-time job during the day and providing care to your loved one in the evenings.

Whatever your reason may be, Nurses on Demand can provide you with quality relief care you can count on! When you’re caring for your aging parent or another elderly loved one, you may think you can do it all on your own.

International Women’s Day is on March 8th (today), and is a global holiday that recognizes women’s incredible achievements, raises awareness and encourages others to advocate for gender equality.

This holiday dates back to the early 1900s when 15,000 women flooded the streets of New York City in hopes for better working conditions, pay and voting rights. From then on, the first-ever National Women’s Day was established in 1909 and has continued to spread to several different countries around the world, eventually leading to the International Women's Day! 🥳🥳

Did you know unplugging on Friday evening from work and taking your brain on vacation for 48 hours helps boost productivity?

It helps you work smart during the week. In short, relaxing well on the weekend helps you reclaim your life. Here are five tips on how you can make the most of your weekends, and, well-being:

Invest in your social health: Use the weekend to strengthen your connections with your family and friends.

Pursue a passion: Have you always wanted to master yoga? Or learn salsa/zumba? Or be an expert at cocktail making to be the star of the next party scene? Hobbies are a source of eustress, or beneficial stress boosting cognitive function, you’ll feel happier and sharper when you go in to work on Monday.

Burn some calories.

Embrace digital minimalism.

Indulge in some me-time: At the end of the week you need some downtime to help you rejuvenate. Check yourself into a spa and get all the knots in your back kneaded away. Learn to paint or book a culinary class for yourself to cook like a master chef. Enjoy a leisurely meal, without the TV blaring on in the background or go for a long walk amidst nature.

We hope you are having a restful weekend - recharging for the week ahead.

QUALITIES TO LOOK FOR IN A CARE WORKER:

Here is a short list of some of the best qualities to look for in a home care nurse:

Patience: You need someone who is very patient and caring because sometimes there will be frustrating moments for both of you.

Punctuality: You need someone who takes timeliness very seriously considering most of your day will be planned around the care they provide.

Quick Learner: We all have different needs and preferences. You need someone who can learn those needs and preferences quickly so that both of you can live harmoniously.

A Good Listener: No one likes repeating themselves. You need someone who will listen to you and hear what you say. Plus, you will probably have stories to tell.

Willingness to Go the Extra Mile: You need someone who will be willing to go the extra mile when you need them to do so.

Responsibility: This entire arrangement depends on how responsible both parties are when it comes to keeping to a set schedule. It is absolutely necessary when it comes to keeping a diet and taking medication.

At Nurses On Demand we take great pride in carefully selecting caregivers that will best suit your needs. In doing so we endure that they have all the qualities necessary to make your experience a positive one for both patient and family.

Good morning YEG! Today we bring to you some helpful tips to keep you upright when walking on ice today! 🧊 🥶 ❄️

1. Walk like a penguin when the path is icy: Point your feet outward and relax your knees. Holding your arms away from your sides to maintain your balance, walk slowly and flat-footed, taking short steps.

2. Put kitty litter in your pockets or a zip-lock bag : If you find yourself faced with icy walks, icy steps or slippery slopes, sprinkle litter to improve traction. Sand works, too. Avoid commercial de-icers, which should be handled with gloves.

4. Step to the side: If your path looks icy, you may get better traction by walking on snow or grass. If you have to climb on accumulated snow to get in the car, keep a good grip on the door.

5. Choose footwear with winter treads made of natural rubber: Avoid dress shoes with smooth soles, and put away your high-heeled boots, they can be deadly. Wear a long, heavy coat to cushion your fall.

Stay safe everyone!

How is everyone feeling in 2022? There's a lot of pressure on us when it comes to the new year. Manifestations, meditations, goal setting, working out! The list goes on. Sometimes it can be equally as important to not put too much pressure on yourself and just live in the moment. It's been a rough couple of years, be kind to yourself.

Home health care professionals provide caring companionship. Did you know that research shows that aging adults stay healthier with social interaction? Home health aides can become trusted friends for walks, reading, cards, games, movies, meals, and other social activities. Accompaniment on errands such as grocery shopping, medical appointments, and other activities are also added benefits.

Companions typically make regular visits, which may vary in frequency depending on the care recipient’s unique needs. Usually, companions visit at least weekly, while some may visit two to three times per week or even daily to help prepare meals, take care of laundry, and other tasks. Schedules may also vary depending on appointments.

If your loved one wants to age-in-place, companion care is one of the most helpful services to enable them to remain independent, in their own home.

Just a Monday morning reminder to move your body! You know we are huge proponents of fitness and wellness here at Nurses on Demand. Even if it’s just going for a light walk, moving can do wonders for your mind and body. Light exercise is also a good antidote because it releases endorphins and can set your day/week up for success.

Like the changing trends in fashion and music, the home care industry experiences changes that reflect the shift in values of each generation.

Today, statistics demonstrate that the majority of the aged population in Canada plan to stay at home for as long as possible, despite changes in health, mobility, or cognition.

Home care providers have stepped up to the challenge, providing more opportunities for care and assistance at home than ever before; this includes services ranging from cooking or light housekeeping to meal preparation and personal care.

Home care is a trusted solution for keeping loved ones safe, happy and comfortable. Plus, it’s what the aging population wants – nearly 90% of seniors say they want to age in place.

12/31/2021

Putting together a list of New Year’s Resolutions may feel like an overwhelming challenge after everything we’ve experienced in 2020/2021, but it doesn’t have to be that complicated. Every new beginning is an opportunity to embrace what we care most about and let go of what we don't need. As a helpful start, we created this list of eight simple tips for starting a self care routine in the new year.

1. Do self care your way.
••As we go about creating our own self care routines it is important to remember that, at its core, practicing self care is about attuning ourselves to what we need in order to be our best selves, and then setting up healthy goals and boundaries that help us keep going even when it is hard. And that can look different for everyone.
2. Prioritize sleep
3. Soothe with scents
4. Get your body moving
5. Nourish yourself
6. Create relaxing routines
7. Welcome joy
8. Be kind to yourself

All of these self care tips bring much needed attention and compassion to our well-being during this difficult time. Of course, each of us will find our own path towards the self care routine that works best for our needs. And we hope these ideas bring you peace in the new year.
