If any family has the same problems that I faced then I recommend this service. I am recommending this service because your loved one will feel safe; your daily routine will not be disturbed. Important thing is that the nurse will be trained that she will check BP, diabetes, she will make the patient exercise and keep track of the patient’s daily routine (as recommended by the doctor). I am a very happy and satisfied customer.
I am writing this article to create awareness of the difficulties faced by me and how I sailed through the tough times. Let’s start at the very beginning… After three years of marriage my in-laws came to stay with us, the reasons being that were getting older and had no one to turn to in an emergency My mother-in-law was suffering from high blood pressure and diabetes, and she was on medication. Once they started staying with us, we got the chance to understand them, and their health problems, better.
In 2007 my mother-in-law had a really bad stroke – completely changing her normal life style. She had problems with her balance, co-ordination, speech, communication, eating and dizziness. She suffered bouts of confusion, repetitive behaviour – counting on her fingers, tilting her head and lifting her hand. Whenever she ate it would be super-fast. She loved to sleep, whenever I asked her what would you like to do, her answer was, “I would like to sleep through the night.”
She wouldn’t have the patience to talk to relatives or friends; her only interest was to stay in her room, lying down on the bed. She wanted a family member to be in the house – she would keep calling out our names, sometimes even coming to our rooms to check whether we were in the house or not. After multiple visits to the hospital for treatment she started to get better. She set a pattern of taking a bath by herself, coming to the table for breakfast, lunch, coffee and dinner. Only thing she lacked was some form of exercise and walking.
