Home Personal Care
Mr. A, 75 years old, lives alone at home after his wife passed away a year ago. He has two children, all of whom are married and live in their own houses. He was always active and did everything himself. But one day, he suffered a stroke that left him half paralyzed. He was allowed to return home after some hospital treatment and intense training. However, his condition had been different since he had the crippling stroke.
It is difficult for Mr. A to take care of himself because he is no longer able to use his arms and legs freely. His daily activities are limited. He is still able to eat and drink, but no longer able to take a bath, get dress, and go to the toilet on his own. The stroke also made him often forgot certain things, including eating, drinking, and taking medications.
His children and in-laws have been responsible for the for his day-to-day care. But they have busy jobs and responsibilities for their respective nuclear families, so it is difficult to find time to visit and help him.
Kavacare can help Mr. A with his daily activities. This includes taking care of Mr. A's personal hygiene, preparing food and drinks, and reminding him to take his medications according to the rules. Kavacare is also able to accompany him for a hospital check-up.
Thus, Mr. A can have a better quality of life and ensure that his basic needs are met. Mr. A's children can engage in their daily activities without the hassle of visiting and assisting their parents on a regular basis.
Mr. B, 60 years old, is being treated at home after suffering a stroke which left some of his limbs unable to move as freely as before. This limitation meant he had to get help with certain things at home, including eating, drinking, and cleaning himself. Mr. B's wife has passed away, so his primary caregiver is one of his children who is not yet married. The other child is married and lives in his own house.
Occasionally his married son would come and help take care of his father. Including when his brother was at work or needed time to rest. For a caregiver who is responsible for the care of the sick, time off is very important. If he/she does not get enough rest, he/she may suffer from fatigue, stress, or illness.
One time, his child who is the primary caregiver was called to the office for an urgent appointment. Meanwhile, his brother and wife are abroad, so they can’t look after Mr. B. Mr. B may not be able to take care of himself because of the stroke.
In an emergency situation like this, Kavacare can look after Mr. B until his children are able to return home. Kavacare will help caring for Mr. B and make sure all his needs are met, including reminding him to take medications as instructed by the doctor. His two children no longer need to worry about his care because Kavacare will handle everything.
Mrs. S, 64 years old, has been receiving assistance from the Kavacare team for several weeks in home care. Her condition gradually showed a positive transition after she was previously hospitalized as her health deteriorated with age.
Mrs. S has been living alone at home since her husband passed away. Her children are married and live near her home. This allows her children to visit her often and to take care of her, especially after work and on weekends.
Mrs. S is still able to walk, eat and drink, and engage in some simple activities at home by herself. But someone has to help her maintain her body hygiene, such as taking a bath and going to the toilet. Mrs. S also often forgets taking her medications, so she always needs to be reminded.
One day, Mrs. S suddenly felt ill. Her body temperature was high, and she kept coughing. The Kavacare team then reached Mrs. S' children to inform them of her condition. Kavacare also requested permission to contact the medical team and asked Kavacare’s doctors to visit Mrs. S for an examination.
Kavacare’s doctors would come and an examine Mrs. S as soon as they got permitted. Based on the examination, there was a possibility of a lung infection. The doctor suggested taking Mrs. S to the hospital for further examination. The Kavacare team could help by calling an ambulance to take Mrs. S to the hospital immediately, while her children would go straight to the hospital so she could get medical treatment as soon as possible.
Mrs. C, 73 years old, has difficulty performing daily activities due to impaired function of some of her body organs. According to the doctor's diagnosis, she had Alzheimer's disease. She is still able to walk on her own without assistance, but often loses her balance so she always has to hold on something or someone. Sometimes she uses a quad walker at home. However, she prefers to walk without the aid so there is a risk of falling.
Ms. C's extended family still lives together at home. Although they are attentive to Mrs. C, all the family members have their own busy schedule. Sometimes the busyness prevents them from being able to accompany and take care of Mrs. C. In this situation, the Kavacare team can act as Mrs. C’s companion and caregiver at home.
Patients with Alzheimer’s disease often wander even at night. If no one in the house knows about it, it is very dangerous for the patient. Mrs. C, who often had trouble sleeping at night and ended up walking around and even leaving the house, is no different. She might get lost and not be able to return home.
As a companion and caregiver, Kavacare would accompany Mrs. C every day and night to keep her from wandering. When she wants to engage in something, the Kavacare caregiver will remind her to use an assistive device and help her to use the device or hold her to avoid the risk of falling.
