It goes without saying, we owe a debt of gratitude to the heroes who put themselves in harm’s way for our benefit. In the unfortunate circumstance that these men and women sustain injuries, we need to make sure our appreciation turns into something more concrete. We at David York Agency salute our military’s service this Veterans Day in New York.
Military Service Injuries
Our military personnel often find themselves dealing with injuries that are both life threatening and life altering. Soldiers returning from the battlefield with these injuries will likely have physical and psychological disabilities. They will need a caregiver for some or all of their care. Given that many of these patients are relatively young, this means a significant period of care that intensifies as they become seniors. The result is the need for decades of care leaving their caregivers under a great deal of stress.
The most serious injuries occur in the field of battle. However, musculoskeletal injuries are the single biggest threat to the health of our troops. Sudden action or repeated stress are often responsible for these. There are also the invisible wounds such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as well as schizophrenia and dementia. These are often overlooked, thereby making them even more painful to deal with in some ways.
Of course, the most heartbreaking is when a soldier comes home with a loss of limb or cognitive ability. As a result, they are no longer able to care for themselves. They will need help with the activities of daily living such as bathing, grooming, dressing and meal preparation for the remainder of their lives. Also, veterans with disabilities often also struggle with chronic pain, depression, PTSD and complex medication regimens.
Veterans Choosing Homecare
More and more veterans are opting for care in the comfortable surroundings of their home. This is especially the case for elderly veterans who are often too frail to be moved successfully. David York Agency in-home care providers are able to focus specifically on providing relief involved with veteran care. A specially-trained team of doctors, nurses and other specialists monitor them. They understand how to treat the specific injuries of veterans and improve the quality of life. Again, we salute our military’s service this Veterans Day and everyday.
