Home Health Hint of the Week: Patience

Patience

Practicing Patience

Nurses With Heart is excited to add another home health hint to our video blog – every week we will be posting a short video related to staying safe and healthy at home. This week we discuss the importance of patience when working with individuals whose lives are changing unexpectedly.

As people age and begin to require more help at home, their perceptions about their life path can change as well. It can be very difficult for someone who was previously independent to seek out and accept help. It is often up to a family member or caregiver to help the individual adapt to their changing situation. This can be made more difficult when the individual’s personality changes, which can be due to many reasons. Today we will talk about the importance of patience when it comes to these situations.

Thanks for watching!
