As people age, they may start to feel the effects of wear and tear in their body, leading to chronic conditions like arthritis, osteoporosis, and more which can cause pain. As pain management can be complex and tricky for some, it is best to have a healthcare professional or doctor who is able to advise older adults on how to better handle the pain. Assisted living communities like Discovery Village At Dominion ensure that residents have access to healthcare amenities like pain management.
About Our Pain Management
Here at Discovery Village At Dominion, older adults or other residents who are dealing with pain are able to visit our healthcare provider and tell them about the pain that they are experiencing. Depending on the type of pain, our on-site medical professional will be able to suggest the next step, ranging from recommending types of stretching routines to prescribing medication for pain relief.
With our pain management amenity in our assisted living community, residents do not have to worry about traveling elsewhere to see a doctor about the pain that they may be experiencing.
Benefits of Having Pain Management in Your Retirement Community
Pain is one of the biggest factors that can affect your quality of life. If you are constantly in pain, it will be difficult for you to enjoy and participate in daily events and engage in physical exercise. Over time, this can really take a toll on the mental and physical well-being of an individual. By having a pain management amenity in the senior living community, residents will be able to have their pain diagnosed, and get a treatment plan that is most suitable for them. Residents will not need to be concerned about going out to find a doctor since there are medical professionals on-site.
Sometimes, treating pain can be complicated and complex, especially if it is for an older adult as other factors need to be taken into consideration. This includes whether the older adult has difficulty swallowing, or if they are on other types of medications that would interfere with the efficacy of the doctor’s prescription. An on-site pain management amenity with medical professionals can help to ensure that the treatment plan for you is suitable and effective for you.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Retirement Community?
Some of the most common pain that older adults experience include arthritic conditions, degenerative spine, ischemic pain, and more. If you find that the pain that you are experiencing has made it difficult for you to do day-to-day tasks on your own, it may be time to consider an assisted living community where there are people who can help.
