BrightStar Care of North Houston assists families in providing the best possible care to a bed-bound loved one by continually monitoring for pressure ulcers, helping your loved one maintain proper nutrition and hydration, assisting with range of motion (ROM) exercises and relieving boredom and depression.

Monitoring for Pressure Sores

A common problem bed-bound patients experience is the development of pressure ulcers, also referred to as bed sores. Home care professionals monitor patients for signs of pressure ulcers and incorporate the proper techniques for lifting, turning, and repositioning patients to minimize the risk.

Helping Your Loved One to Maintain Proper Nutrition and Hydration

Engaging a home health care professional to assist with daily nutrition and hydration is critical to positive well-being. BrightStar Care professionals can assist with meal preparation services as well as help with eating.

Assisting with Range of Motion (ROM) Exercises

Loved ones who are confined to their beds, whether due to injury or illness, often need assistance in keeping their joints flexible. Your BrightStar Care home caregiver can provide range of motion (ROM) exercises to help prevent stiffness and muscle spasms.
