It is like going to a doctor’s office or ER. When presented with a groin pain, the admitting nurse, PA or NP asks you standard questions. What is the level of your pain now? Other questions will determine if you have clots, aneuryism, vascular health issues, stroke, hernia and then a blood and urine test is taken. Your BP is measured and some times they will inspect your legs. The patient questionnaire is old and not updated based on many new medical and non medical research, findings and best practice.

That is why a real artificial intelligence in the health care industry is hard to define and set a standard.

But not knowing other factors, what you did 3 days ago, what did you eat, what kind of working environment do you have and past health issues will be a disadvantage to predict the root cause of your health issue.

The medical narrative, caregiving needs and matching the care needed for your aging parents takes a village and must consider many factors and solutions.

Let us help you.

 

How to find calmness , a caregiver at your side

calm finds me

Email motherhealth@gmail.com on how to find calmness in your life.

Anxiety is the number one health issue of seniors.

We ensure that they are calm. We give them good sleep, massage, whole foods and a companion they can trust. But at times, they could not sleep. Melatonin have helped them.

For most bay area seniors, they worry about the house they left behind since they are now living in a care home for seniors.

For those who live alone, they worry about sales calls, sales people knocking on their door, their finances and many other worries.

We help remove some of these anxieties for seniors in the bay area who need assistance in daily living , a caregiver or home helper. Cities we serve for non medical in home caregiving includes Atherton, Los Altos, Palo Alto, Peninsula, Santa Clara county, Saratoga, Los Gatos and nearby cities.

Yelp experience, senior care services in the bay area

In promoting my senior care services, I asked others where to advertise.  Caregivers hotline, newspaper, craigslist and other online social media can help promote a business. I started with word of mouth and giving out seminars on Caregiving tips.  Meeting seniors in senior centers and their homes also helped in finding clients who need caregivers because they have hospice care or living alone with Alzheimer’s or Parkinsons.  Their family would call me from my craigslist ad. I will go to their house and give tips on senior proofing the house to avoid falls and ask them what they are looking for in a caregiver and what the needs of their parents are.

Some of my business owners friends like and dislike YELP.com

And I am trying yelp this time to have a good start for my business in 2016.
