A professional, well-trained nurse is a powerful amalgamation of a competent healthcare provider and a caring friend. A wiz at multitasking, she can take your blood pressure while coaxing you into eating the bland, convalescent food that is not at all interesting to your taste buds but so good for your health. Imagine the awesomeness of having someone like that around round the clock, while you or a loved one in your family is sick? Let’s explore what else they bring to the table (or in this case) the bed (in which you / loved one is recovering).
Your get well soon regime is not only just medical support but also emotional support (a healthy body needs a healthy heart and mind too). You could use as much support from doctors for your body but then your mind also craves oodles of morale boosting and pampering, that your family can pour in. To expect both from anyone among the doctors and the family will leave you disappointed. Your family may lack the medical expertise and a doctor could be too distant to understand your emotions. But nurses are trained to take care of you when you are sick or recovering from an illness. The care that a nurse can provide is enriched with both professional finesse and personal concern. They not only assist you in the process of healing from a disease but also help in healing the mental and emotional scars you pick up while you are sick.
How you wish to have someone by your side round the clock for taking care of you when you are sick. Your family tries hard to accompany you but being as responsible as you are, you keep sending them away for their work (Even if you want to cling on to them like a koala). But then what if someone’s work is to accompany you 24/7? Nurses can fill in your loved one’s shoes in this case and lift the burden from both their shoulders and conscience. They could take care of you while accompanying you.
Ailments do not follow any schedule. It does not care for any courtesy or etiquette as you would do and appear only at a convenient time. But when they come, they bring along a long list of harassments. What if after having a Heart Bypass Surgery you suddenly start having a chest pain at an ungodly hour? 24/7 nursing service is like the rare blessing everyone craves for but few get in such situations. Nurses are trained to attend to such emergencies and can neutralise the situation of the patient until the time diagnosis by a doctor is possible.
The process of recovery might just become a very boring affair as you have nothing else to do apart from resting. You have unlimited time and so little to do. Watching movies, playing video games or reading books may seem to be the first things to pop in your mind as the “I must do” things, but eventually it becomes a tedious affair. Humans yearn for company and hey, who knows your nurse could become your next dear friend. They interact with a lot of people for their profession and you could get to hear so much about a variety of things from them. Getting a bit chitty-chatty could relax you and that is something that you should be doing.
It is always good to have someone who can attend to you or your loved ones in such trying times. Nurses are specially trained to assist in the recovery stage of a patient and it is high time you go avail 24/7 nursing service to make your recuperation journey smoother.

My father had a surgery and required regular healthcare services. Portea has greatly helped him with their in-home healthcare services.
