When it comes to your kidneys, keeping them in tip-top shape can make a world of difference when it comes to your long-term health going forward. Unfortunately, many senior patients today have existing problems with their kidneys– and they don’t even know it yet. The reason for this is that kidney tumors and other symptoms of looming renal failure often go unnoticed by their hosts until they have become cancer, extending from a problem that needs to be contained to one that could be life-threatening.
Kidney cancer is first discovered after a urinalysis is conducted by doctors, which allows them to locate any abnormal cells in the urine. If doctors do locate abnormalities in the structure of kidney cells or surrounding organs, it is a key sign that the kidneys are suffering from a problem that needs to be rectified sooner rather than later!
At A-1 Home Care, the compassionate and qualified nurse aides on staff look to provide elderly patients who may be suffering from kidney dysfunction a lasting peace of mind. Some of the methods they utilize to improve patients’ quality of life include:
- urology appointments
What’s more, A-1 Home Care’s specialized hourly in-home care service providers meet their patients right where they’re at, allowing them to find lasting companionship even when they’re out of the hospital and back in the comfort of their home. Also, A-1 Home Care’s 24-hour home care services offer aid with daily responsibilities that are oftentimes too much to bear for seniors with significant renal problems. Such aid includes the more obvious ones, like running errands or helping with tidying up the house, but also include more personal care such as assisting with:

- bathroom duties
- mobility tasks
