At Curodoc, we understand that some people require Home healthcare services due to various environmental, physical, or psychological conditions that have resulted in disabilities. Disabilities come in different forms, including vision impairments, hearing problems, mental health issues, cognitive impairments, physical disabilities, acquired brain injuries, and autism spectrum disorder, among others. Disabilities are classified based on four dimensions: structure and function of the body or impairment, activity restrictions, participation restrictions, and the influence of environmental factors.
What are the causes of disabilities?
Disabilities can arise due to various factors, including poverty and malnutrition, war, nuclear radiation, hazardous work environments, birth defects due to exposure to pesticides and poisons, inherited disabilities, disabilities caused by pregnancy, inadequate access to healthcare, injections and medications, and home-related accidents.
How can we provide quality care to patients with disabilities?
Taking care of patients with disabilities is not an easy task. At Curodoc, we understand the difficulties that come with it. Here are some tips on how to care for patients with disabilities:
●Speak to the patient directly, not through any possible companions.
● Be careful not to assume the patient needs a certain kind of help. Wait for your offer to be accepted before extending assistance, and then wait for directions.
● Inquire how you can assist them and respect their responses.
● Assume that patients with disabilities are capable of managing their own medical care.
●Give yourself enough time for a thorough examination and take a history.
● Use clear language when communicating to reduce misunderstandings and boost receptivity.
● Use open-ended inquiries like “How are you doing?” and “What can I do to help you.”
● If you are unsure, do not hesitate to ask the patient.
● Give them your full attention, do not judge.
