It’s estimated that four out of five adults will struggle with chronic illness, including heart disease, arthritis, or osteoporosis. An estimated 50% of those people will have at least two chronic conditions. However, you mustn’t let chronic illness prevent you or a loved one from living a full, enjoyable life.
Home health care is often viewed as a negative sign that an individual is deteriorating. But in fact, it can help them flourish and grow stronger. Let’s look into how home health care can help chronic illness patients live their best lives.
It can be challenging to get out and about when you have a chronic illness. A home health care aide ensures that it’s easier for chronic illness patients to get out in the world and enjoy life with other people. They often can make bonds with their aides.
Many chronic illness patients spend much time housebound, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Being able to have those connections with others is hugely important to them.
