In-Home Elder Care for Seniors Afflicted with Shingles
According to the Chicago Tribune, shingles can be an awfully painful skin disease that may be triggered by fever, stress, radiation therapy, tissue damage or immunosuppression (Atwood, 2009). Shingles, a reactivation of chicken pox, may incite symptoms such as soreness, tingling, pain or itching followed by a surge of painful blisters oftentimes along the shoulders and chest. In any case, shingles can be extremely irritating and painful and at an old age, can become quite dangerous.

Prostate enlargement or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) commonly affects men over the age of 50. Symptoms that typically occur with BPH are frequent urges to urinate, trouble with urinating and lingering feelings of urges even after urination. Though by itself, BPH is not a serious disease, it may lead to Urinary Tract Infection or even Prostate Cancer. Be sure to visit a doctor as soon as symptoms occur and request consultation.

Our Live-In Caregivers will be able to drive your loved one to and from hospital checkups on a regular basis, see to it that medicine is being taken regularly, offer After Surgery Care if surgical treatment is necessary and provide overnight Live-In assistance that will help your loved one make repeated trips to the restroom throughout the night.
