Professional Cares Services
Nurses On The Move is a leading South Africa home-based agency providing care within the comfort and security of your home. Our team of carefully selected, highly skilled and certified care givers are available to provide you with the professional and compassionate assistance that you require. Below are some of the services we offer.
Moving an elderly to a care facility
The trauma of moving an elderly or health compromised relative into a care facility, placed in the hands of relative strangers, being forced to part with pets and leaving a secure environment often leads to rapid deterioration in mental and physical health as well as extra stress for the entire family.
Whether it be an elderly loved one looking to spend their golden years in comfort and care surrounded by friends and family or someone special in need of a carer to help them live their life to the fullest, Nurses on the move has the cost-wise and practical solution readily available.
Qualified nurse or caregiver
By placing a qualified nurse or caregiver in the home of a dependent, our in-home assisted living carers do their utmost to ensure that their charge is looked after, comfortable, and most importantly, remains happy and comfortable in their home. Dependents may be frail seniors, the elderly in need, those that need wound or infusion assistance, or those that require physical rehabilitation ser
Specialized medical care for people of all ages living with a serious illness
Palliative care is a fairly recent medical specialty. It is not the same as a hospice, which serves only the dying. Instead, it focuses on improving the patient’s quality of life. It provides comfort to people of all ages with serious, chronic, and life-threatening illnesses.
These diseases include kidney failure, cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure, AIDS, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer’s, among others. Pain and difficulty in breathing are two of the most frequent and serious symptoms experienced by patients in need of palliative care.
Get qualified nursing early in the illness
Palliative care is most effective when considered early in the course of the illness. Early palliative care not only improves quality of life for patients but also reduces unnecessary hospitalizations and use of health-care services. Palliative care provides relief from the symptoms and stress of the illness. It prevents and relieves suffering through the early identification, correct assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, whether physical or psychosocial.
A team approach
Palliative care uses a team approach to support patients and their caregivers. This includes addressing practical needs and providing bereavement counselling. It offers a support system to help patients live as actively as possible
Dementia is one of the conditions that Nurses on the move handle and our care workers are experienced with this illness and how to deal with all stages related with this issue. More about how to diagnose this illness and the various stages please continue reading as this will shed more information on the symptoms.
Some of the first signs of Alzheimer’s disease include lapses in memory and problems with finding the right words. Other symptoms that may develop include:
- Memory problems: For example, forgetting the way home from the shops, or being unable to remember names and places.
- Mood changes: Particularly as the parts of the brain that control emotion becomes affected by disease. People with dementia may also feel sad, frightened or angry about what is happening to them.
- Communication problems: For example, a decline in the ability to talk read and write.
Caring for a person that has Dementia
When a person with dementia finds that their mental abilities are declining, they often feel vulnerable and in need of reassurance and support. The people closest to them – including their carers, friends and family – need to do everything they can to help the person to retain their sense of identity and feelings of self-worth. I think that this statement speaks for its self and we at Nurses on the move will stand together to implement every aspect of this statement as we would like to think that it’s our priority and not just a job description.
Post-operative care can reduce
Post-operative care begins immediately after surgery. The type of post-operative care you need depends on the type of surgery you have, as well as your health history. It often includes pain management and wound care.
Post-operative care gives you peace of mind
It can be stressful when you or your loved one is admitted to the hospital, and we are at our most vulnerable when we return home. Plan ahead and organise post-operative care from someone that you can depend on. This will not only give you peace of mind, it will also reduce the likelihood of readmission.
