The winter can be an incredibly difficult season for anyone, but it is especially challenging for the elderly. With a plethora of various ailments and accidents waiting to strike, elderly people are the most at risk during this precarious time of year. These weather-related disasters are best to take precautions against, and the folks with live in care can prevent most of the possible dilemmas associated with the winter by following a few steps.

When It Comes To Hypothermia…

Hypothermia is a state of bodily distress caused by the internal temperature dropping to a dangerous level. The changes that accompany ageing can increase the risk of hypothermia. The possibility of someone having hypothermia is indicated by cold skin, fatigue, confusion, and slowed heart rate. To prevent against the dangers of hypothermia , you should

  • Refrain from being outdoors for very long.
  • Stay dry and keep clothes warm.
  • Layer your outfits so that you can stay warm.

When It Comes To Frostbite…

The indicators of frostbite are ashy coloured skin and pain in the extremities, but frostbite is most likely to affect the nose, ears, cheeks, chin, fingers, and toes. Though it is not normally fatal, it can result in the loss of a limb in the extreme. To prevent against the dangers of frostbite, you should

  • Cover all parts of your body, which includes wearing mittens and something over your face.
  • Run the cold parts of your body under warm water to keep them from becoming damaged.
  • Have your live in care professional ready and able to call 999 if needed.

When It Comes To Shoveling Snow…

Though snow shoveling in and of itself is not a bad thing, it can result in some very unfortunate circumstances for the elderly. The heart works extra hard to pump blood throughout the body during the cold, and this additional strenuous activity can cause some serious strain on the heart. It is also a dangerous activity for people with osteoporosis, because it can result in falls that damage bones. To prevent against the dangers of snow shoveling, you should

  • Watch out for iced pavements, including sidewalks!
  • Hire someone else to shovel the snow and salt the walkways.
  • Keep a pair of nonslip boots nearby to help control possible slipping.
  • Consider the use of additional support options, like a cane fitted with an ice pick.

As you get older, we know how important it is for you to maintain your independence and to keep enjoying the things you have always done. But have you ever considered hiring a professional carer that can  help you stay in your own home spending your time doing the things you love instead of having to do the everyday chores that life requires!

We are able to offer care for a wide range of personal requirements, conditions and circumstances. Whether you want companionship and some help around your home; more specialised care for conditions such as dementia or Parkinson’s; or if your family carer simply wants a holiday… whatever you require, your needs are always our priority.

The best way to find out more is to call us and allow one of our advisers to come and see you and your loved ones and make sure you feel safe and your needs can be met.

Nursing is Career … Not just a Job

You’re ready for a new job opportunity. Started job search and managed to book yourself an Interview , all is good and as planned, by this point, you need to do your home work to be ready to sell yourself and the best way in doing so is to have a close look at your potential employer’s website.This will help you grow your confidence level and show your future employer you care and want the Job more than the other candidates.

Did you know that you have a chance of asking HR questions before accepting a job offer as a nurse? The widespread shortage of nurses in many places gives you room to be a job seeker with a choice on who to work for. Don’t be timid. Ask questions about what you consider important to you and how you carry out your job. Worth considering the following questions before giving a definite answer :

  1. About salary and allowances

Ask about your starting salary and compare this with what is offered in your area for similar roles .  Inquire about allowances in relation to relocation, overtime and any other special nursing care related duties. Many healthcare agencies fail to guarantee secured working hours for their nurses. A great way to find out is to just ask and check your future employer’s reviews, testimonials and social media accounts.

  1. Job related benefits

What does the company offer for your personal healthcare? This relates to matters such as insurance, paid vacation/leave and maternity leave for women.

  1. Interpersonal relationships

Strive to know the relationship between the administration and the workers.  How easy can you have issues resolved between you and a fellow member of staff or between you and the administration? Does the company have a mentorship program?

  1. Education and Training opportunities

Does the company have a continuing education program that will improve your CV and Overall Career Development ? Opportunities to get certifications in certain areas can help in your professional progression. Many healthcare agencies do offer mandatory training , offer courses and development days to help nurses improve their practice and support their continuing professional development (CPD). It is a great chance to ask your future employer if training is included in your employment contract.

  1. Will your personal special circumstances be considered in your new job role?

This can relate to physical or social-family issues. A pregnant or nursing mother for example may find it challenging to work in certain areas. Such mothers may need a department with more flexibility where it may be possible to take a break or reduce working hours (part time ) when circumstances demand. In addition to talking to the HR officer, talk to nurses and other staff who are already working with the company. You will learn from them some things that HR may not be willing to tell you. All these will help you to decide whether take the job opportunity or not.

If you make it a priority to ask these important questions before you accept a nursing job offer, you’ll be much happier with your decision—whether you accept or decline it. It might seem like a good idea to at first take what you can get, but what you want at the end of the day is to love your job and the best way to achieve this is to do your homework beforehand.

Small things like that can be helpful conversation topics during an interview and, ultimately, they can make all the difference in securing the position. Secure Healthcare Solutions is a specialist in establishment healthcare staffing solutions across England. We are actively recruiting and supplying front line staff in Birmingham and the West Midlands, London, Manchester and Bristol areas.
