Improved Wellness for Patients with Developmental Disabilities

Improved Wellness for Patients with Developmental Disabilities

Being a Caregiver in California for a patient with a developmental disability can be tough. Apart from having to provide them with basic care and assisting them in activities, such as bathing, dressing, eating, and cooking, you may also have to provide emotional support and make sure they don’t feel lonely or isolated.

If you’re Caregiving for a patient with developmental disabilities, you may have noticed that he/she has trouble communicating their needs. Therefore, it’s your job to communicate their needs and wants to their doctors and primary healthcare providers.

Here are a few tips to help improve your loved one’s care and wellness:

  • Inform your patient’s doctor of their current and past health issues.
  • Have a designated health journal for your patient, and bring it with you during appointments.
  • Inform the doctor about all the medications your patient is currently taking.
  • Tell the doctor about noticeable medication side-effects that your patient experiences.
  • If there’s anything you want to clear up about your patient’s care, don’t be scared to ask questions.
