Visiting your Doctor: How your In-Home Caregiver Can Help

You schedule them, plan your day around them and try to arrive on time. A visit to your doctor’s office can require some planning on your part, but making sure you go as recommended plays a key role in staying in the best shape possible. Whether it be a trip to see your eye doctor, primary doctor, chiropractor, dentist, physical therapist or specialist, a trusted in-home caregiver can help you arrive promptly and prepared. Aqua Home Care refers reliable, experienced caregivers who will be there to assist you in any way you may need to ensure you are ready for your appointment. Your caregiver can offer assistance with:

  • Scheduling appointments
  • Dressing comfortably and appropriately
  • Providing reminders for any pre-visit instructions given by your doctor (ex: no eating after a certain time, taking your medication, drinking fluids, etc.)
  • Arranging for a wheelchair accessible vehicle, if needed
  • Driving you to your appointment safely and on time
  • Getting in and out of the vehicle
  • Filling out any necessary forms
  • Offering companionship before, during and/or after you see your doctor
  • Being present, if requested, to ask, answer and write down any questions you or your doctor may have
  • Driving you to fill or refill prescriptions
  • Helping you follow any instructions given by your doctor after your appointment (ex: eating certain foods, limiting or increasing exercise, medication reminders, etc.)
  • Scheduling follow-up appointments

Comfort, safety and well-being is a top priority. Aqua Home Care refers trusted caregivers who are able to help their clients get to their doctor appointments whether they require frequent visits or only need to go every so often. From assistance with scheduling appointments to everything thereafter, caregivers can help by making visits both more manageable and as pleasant as possible.
