In Home Care For Seniors & Pneumonia In Milwaukee, WI

See how our in home care for seniors can help your loved one maintain a high quality of life

Pneumonia ranges in severity from mild to life threatening. It is especially dangerous for those struggling with congestive heart failure or chronic lung problems and is most dangerous in infants, children, those with compromised immune systems, and adults over 65.  Fever, nausea, chest pains, or painful coughing fits make it difficult and even impossible to run errands, get around the house, or even continue activities of daily living. Elderly pneumonia sufferers often experience a decreased level of mental awareness, which can be dangerous for those living alone.  Pneumonia can be a frightening condition for seniors who live far away from family. Fortunately, Comfort Keepers in home care for seniors includes experienced caregivers who know the facts about pneumonia.

We offer specialized care services in Milwaukee and surrounding areas to keep you doing the things you enjoy in the comfort of your own home.

Pneumonia Facts

Caused by a variety of factors including bacteria, viruses, and fungi; Pneumonia occurs when alveoli (small air sacs in your lungs) become irritated and inflamed, often filling with liquid or pus. This condition causes fever, chills, and coughs with thick phlegm. Pneumonia also causes difficulty breathing as there is now less space in the lung for healthy air; making pneumonia especially dangerous for people with emphysema, chronic bronchitis, or other forms of COPD.

Common symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Painful coughs
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Nausea and diarrhea
  • Fatigue
  • Chest pain

Nausea and diarrhea can be a terrible outcome for seniors with limited mobility who live alone; threatening the sanitation of their home and making basic self-care more difficult. Chest pain and difficulty breathing have the potential to cause further stress for people with CHF or COPD, and fatigue makes maintaining an active lifestyle challenging.  This is where in home care for seniors comes into play!

Surviving Pneumonia

When struggling with pneumonia, the best thing you can do is rest and drink plenty of fluids. Staying hydrated and well rested gives your body the energy it needs to fight off the infection. Don’t forget to take all medications your doctor has prescribed you. Be sure to finish the entire course of medication as you might still be fighting the infection despite feeling better.

Having a friend or family member present to help makes fighting pneumonia easier, but seniors with busy or far away families might feel alone. Comfort Keepers will be by your side to ensure you take your full course of medications, have plenty of fluids, and don’t overexert yourself.
