What is geriatric care?

Geriatric care is the process of coordinating and planning the care of the elderly with physical and mental impairments. It aims to maintain their independence for as long as possible while meeting their long-term needs and improving the quality of their life. 

Who is geriatric care for? 

Geriatric care is generally for older adults who have certain diseases and disabilities. Examples of such diseases are dementia, arthritis, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, heart disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. 

Who provides geriatric care? 

The most common provider of geriatric care is geriatric nurses. Geriatric nurses are nurses who work in the geriatric field, also known as gerontology. They focus on providing care and support for the seniors. Geriatric nurses are highly educated and trained to understand and treat the various needs of the elderly community. There is a growing need for nurses who are equipped to meet the social, medical and psychological needs of the senior population.

Review 1

Nisha held my hands through the entire process as I’d never hired a caregiver before. She was patient and responsive, answering my multitude of questions. She helped pair us with a caring, experienced caregiver as we were desperately needing assistance. Thank you Nisha and Active Global.

Review 2

I have worked with Jeremy for my stay-in caregiver. He is very helpful and thoughtful in helping my family through difficult times. This is my first time engaging a caregiver and didn’t know what to expect. He answered my queries and guided me through the process patiently. My caregiver, May has been trained and assimilated into my family well. She has been a great help in attending to my father’s medical needs. Thank you very much, Jeremy and Active global. Keep up the standard and quality services.

Review 3

On behalf of my family, I am only rating this at 5 stars simply because I cannot rate this service higher. We approached Active Global at a time when the COVID-19 pandemic affected the supply of helpers badly. Yet, even during the most testing of times, the professionalism and dedication from the staff, especially Mr Asraf, is nothing short of the very best you can receive at a time of great need and uncertainty. Finding a helper is often a tricky process but Mr Asraf navigated the circumstances very well and provided updates constantly to ensure all concerns could be met as much as possible. Asraf has himself available consistently throughout the hiring process and streamlined candidates very well to ensure the right person would be made available to meet the specific demands of my family’s situation. No amount of money can replace the sincere dedication and resilience needed to overcome the numerous challenges. People like Mr Asraf form the heartbeat of the organisation that serves to help those in need. The service provided by Active Global is a noble one and the additional support that they provide brings immense relief for families who really require such specialised help. We are forever indebted to the good work done by Mr Asraf.

This is an elderly daycare centre that really takes care of your parents! Very professional! I found a gem. They take care of parents while I am able to work, hence I can focus on earning money while knowing that my parents are in good hands. Interesting to note is that their service comes from years of practice/ experience in the Finnish elderly care system.

I have been using Homage for a while now, and every experience left me feeling very satisfied. The care professional was very polite and caring towards my grandma and provided me with frequent updates on my grandma’s situation while I was away at work. Highly recommended for families who are looking for caregiving support.

By Wei Ker Ng

Review 2

I have been using Homage medical escort service for my mom. I must say, I am extremely pleased with the quality of service provided by the nurses.

The app is wonderful, as it allows me to keep track of my mom’s visit schedule with the nurses, and I am able to receive visit summaries after the visit sessions.

Thank you Homage for your excellent service! I will not hesitate to recommend Homage to others.

By Annie

Review 3

Have been using Homage’s services for months now and I have been very pleased with all the CarePros they have sent to look after my mum who is a stroke patient. It has also been pretty much a breeze when making the bookings with the staff, in particular Ernie, who has been very helpful and accommodating in acceding to my requests especially when I have to make last-minute arrangements for my mum.

I find the Nurses and Doctors alike, despite their very busy workload, still serve you Courteously, with dignity and respect. Making sure you are well taken care of and have food to eat. The doctors too will do their utmost to lower fear to rest and do their part as a professional doctor. Well done.

By Han Damian 

Review 2

been pleased with the doctors and staff, especially Dr Mallya Ullal Jagadish and the team at the Geriatric Department.

Dr Jagadish is friendly and empathetic towards patients and their next-of-kin. And he always made the effort to stand up and shake the hands of his patients & their companion when the consultation is over.

The various nurses at the Geriatric department never fail to make the elderly feel cared for. The atmosphere there is always friendly. You can sense genuine and sincere compassion within these nurses.

It was also to the credit of one of the nurses there that we caught a critical eye condition in my mom in time.

Overall, this hospital made a good effort in creating an environment that is conducive for healing and rest, especially for in-patient.

Beyond the caring staff, the green spaces are impressive; providing an effective respite even for the caregiver.

Review 1

Thank you for constructing this only eldercare in the region to cater to the needs of the elderly folks staying nearby. The care centre looks bright, clean, and well equipped with a lot of beneficial elder care facilities and equipment. Keep up the good job!

Review 2

Our family is ever grateful to the tender loving care St Luke’s Hougang Meadow centre had rendered to my father for all the time he had spent at the centre.

My father is very happy to have made acquaintance with all staff at St Luke’s HMC.
With Special mention to Molly & Sophia.

Apologies for me not being able to call out all names. But my father is ever grateful till his last moment.

Till his last moment, my father had requested to pay a visit to the centre as he wanted to revisit the staff and all his buddies.

We are ever grateful for the wonderful care & sweet moments that St Luke’s HMC & it’s family had given to my father.

Thou lymphoma had taken our father from us, but the support provided by St Luke’s HCM is invaluable to us.

A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL AT ST LUKES HMC & all residents.

My mom is a dementia patient and she suffers from depression at the same time. I brought her to St Luke’s ElderCare Hougang Meadow Centre on 15 Aug 2018.

In my brief interaction with the daycare centre staffs and the feedback from my mom, I gathered that the staff are indeed passionate & caring. We feel a great sense of relief after my mom started attending the daycare centre. Within the short span of a week, her mood changed tremendously. She seems much happier and looks forward to going to the centre daily. She kept singing praises of the daycare centre staff, saying that they are very caring and show great concern towards the old folks.

Special mention goes to Molly and Daniel who are extremely caring and also for providing her safe trips to and from her home. We feel so happy as mom found a second home as well as physical & mental well being.

We will highly recommend SLEC to old folks.

Went to A&E twice, warded and had medical procedures done at SKH in the past month. I would say the doctors and nurses are doing a great job. They are caring and attentive and it was an overall pleasant experience.

By Blue Ninja

Review 2

All the healthcare workers in Ward 26 (on-call doctors including my doctor-in-charge, nurses, patient care associates, environment services associates) seem forever so happy to work there.

Their warmth, patience and professionalism really put the orthopaedic patients of the ward at ease. The level-of-care and concern are superb, beyond that of one’s expectation of a public hospital in Singapore.

Also deserving special mention are Dr Zheng (Infectious Diseases), Prof Aw (Dermatology), the Emergency Department and team of nurses at OPAT (Outpatient Antibiotics Therapy) who worked together as a team with Ward 26 colleagues to provide the coordinated and thorough care during my hospitalisation (1 to 8 Jun 2020).

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, I really feel safe from the possibility of cross-infections. As one who would expect from Singapore’s healthcare system, the level of hygiene and treatment standards are one of the most comprehensive ones in the world. Like they always have been doing, taking every step to make sure that patients do not get infected with Covid-19 and all other possible microbes.

I was hospitalized due to lisfranc injury. The doctors and nurses are very helpful. You can feel they are sincerely for helping you. They really want you to get well. Although sometimes it will take a while for them to reach you they are really short-handed. I saw the nurse the evening but early next morning you will see her again. They worked hard for your request. Please… treat them nicely. They are tired too.

While overnighting in Singapore on our way to the UK I was unfortunate to have a medical emergency that necessitated me being taken to this hospital by ambulance. From the time I was picked up by the ambulance until I was discharged from the emergency department, the care could not be faulted. The staff were friendly but professional – all spoke excellent English, – the surroundings were clean and the various tests performed were explained clearly – I knew at all times what they were giving me, what they were doing and what they were looking for. I spent three & a half hours there, and when I left I was given a full, seven-page report, to pass on to my GP when I got home, or any other medical personnel should I need to. Their excellent care meant that I was able to confidently get on our flight that same night. Thank you to everyone involved.

Why is geriatric care important? 

Have you ever wondered why some people are willing to spend on engaging geriatric care services? Well, as our body ages, it becomes prone to medical conditions, both physical and mental. Ageing is something that cannot be prevented, but we can equip ourselves with the knowledge on how to deal with arising conditions for our loved ones’ great health. Among the other health concerns, dementia and memory loss are the most common concerns. 

Benefits of having an in-house geriatric care service

If you are a caregiver of an elderly family member and you struggle because you do not understand their needs fully and you do not have the expertise to care for them at home, engaging in an in-house geriatric care service might be a better option for you and your family. 

Comfort

The most obvious and main benefit of having an in-house geriatric care service is the ability to stay in a place that is most familiar and comfortable for the elderly family member. They can continue their daily routines without having to adapt to too many changes in their life. For dementia patients, being in familiar surroundings is beneficial for them.

Personalised Care

With in-house geriatric care service, there is no need to adjust to the routines and schedules of geriatric care facilities because there is a specially designed home care plan to fit your family’s needs. Home care is flexible and can adapt easily to different clients, whether you need a few hours or all-day geriatric home care service. 

Quicker recovery 

Studies have found that patients who remain in their own homes recover from illness much quicker and more successfully than those who are not in their own homes. They also have a reduced risk from developing infections from exposure to germs in medical facilities and generally have fewer hospital re-admissions. 

Undivided attention 

In-house geriatric care enables one-on-one attention to your elderly family member. Usually, an in-house caregiver only attends to a single client, rest assured that your loved one’s needs are met effectively and efficiently as compared to a medical facility. 

Cost-effectiveness

Most in-house geriatric care services are charged hourly, so there is a lot more flexibility when it comes to the expense. In some cases, you might be eligible for free-of-charge in-house geriatric care services, which means you can save your pocket entirely. There are also long-term insurance plans available that can help to cover the cost of in-house geriatric care services. 

Family involvement 

When you opt for in-house geriatric care services, it allows you and your family to be part of the planning process of the care plan. With a good geriatric care agency, you can have a direct line of communication with the caregiver assigned, and you will receive frequent updates from a care manager. 

Why do you need a geriatric care professional? 

When caregiving for an elderly family member becomes overwhelming, you might need help from a geriatric care professional. It might be time for a geriatric care professional to take over if: 

The family member you are caring for has many psychological or medical issues

  • The family member you are caring for is unable to live safely in his or her current living environment 
  • You have limited time and expertise in dealing with your family member’s chronic care needs
  • You need help with dealing with the family member’s dementia behaviours 

Working with geriatric care professionals

  • Gain a better understanding of chronic and acute health issues in the ageing population 
  • Discussion of common concerns relating to health, such as falls, changing sleep patterns, diet and hydration, short-term memory, disease prevention, and incontinence. 
  • Organise, order and manage medications and monitor for the occurrence of possible side effects
  • Recommend and explain suitable adjustments to daily routines or medication regiment 
  • Assess cognitive thinking skills and mental status 

Tips for caregiving an elderly family member 

Have a support system

If you know you are unable to spend enough time taking care of your elderly family member due to work or other commitments, do consider engaging professional geriatric care services and let the professionals take over. 

Visiting the doctor

It is crucial to schedule periodic visits to the doctors, even if it is for a simple check-up. As the main caregiver, you should also familiarise the medical history, current medication and dosage of the elderly you are taking care of. 

Exercising and healthy dieting 

As the main caregiver, it is recommended that you accompany the elderly you are taking care of for morning and evening walks. Believe it or not, your presence will help them recover quicker, and this is a perfect opportunity to spend more time together. As for their meal intake, keep a close eye on what they eat as they are unable to consume much at their age due to indigestion. 

Fall-prevention 

For elders, most of the fatal and non-fatal injuries are associated with falls. Each time an elderly falls, it increases the risks of physical health problems. Ensure that the environment that the elderly is living in is organised, and the floor should be laid with anti-slip mats and rugs to prevent unnecessary fall accidents. 

Conclusion 

It is never easy to take care of older adults, assuming we are non-professionals who are not aware of underlying issues and needs that only professionals understand. Sometimes, engaging in professional geriatric care services might be the best choice for you and your family as the professionals can take care of the elderly better.
