The bad thing about a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is that it can alter your life in many ways. In addition to long-term health concerns, the most serious injuries can result in death.
Many people in Virginia Beach do not realize the importance of monitoring their elderly loved ones for anxiety and other mental disorders, especially if a loved one lives in a nursing home and suffers from medical conditions. Anxiety does not always develop from medication or old age. Anxiety often coincides with feelings of pain, trauma, abuse and danger, and it is common in people who live in long-term care residences. Those who end up in nursing homes often require assistance with daily needs and medication or suffer from diminished cognitive functions. This also makes them extremely vulnerable to anxiety in care facilities and nursing homes where abuse and neglect may occur.
There may come a time when you realize that a loved one is better off in a nursing home. This is a difficult decision to make, but you do so because you want what's best for the person.
