Accidents can happen at any time, at any moment, especially in a busy city like Studio City. How many people do you hear about who have been killed while crossing the street or were injured in a bad bicycle accident? The younger you are, the more devastating an accident can be when it changes your life forever. Going from being independent, physically active and healthy to becoming dependent upon others for basic needs like cooking and toileting can really crush the human spirit.
In the initial stages of a newfound disability, it is important to keep the human spirit alive while taking care of basic personal needs. If physical needs are not taken care of, then a person’s livelihood can be dampened as he is reminded daily that he cannot do certain things like he used to. If you have a sibling or parent who recently suffered from a tragic accident, but you are obliged to return to work soon, getting a home health aide for your loved one is one of the best things you can do to empower him.
Aside from assistance with daily living like meal preparation and light housekeeping, caregivers can connect your loved one with the outside world by taking him to social events, meetings, conventions, or even work. If the family member’s employer allows him to work from home but the new disability hinders him from typing, a home health aide can type or do other things under the care recipient’s direction. Care recipients often bond with their caregivers on this level of personal care. By forming a bond, you can create a team that enables your loved one to interact with successful overcomers who have similar disabilities. Social interaction is key; companions with superb social skills are a compelling link between your loved one’s well-being and empowerment.
