You Exercise Freedom
When you enroll in the CDPA program, you’ll get to take charge of your healthcare and exercise freedom.
Many of us have mistakenly believed that it’s a physician’s responsibility to manage our health. In reality, it’s our job to manage our own health because a physician cannot be with us 24/7.
Although a trusted physician can offer recommendations concerning your overall wellbeing, you are the only one who can make the final decision. There are many things you can do to take charge of your freedom. Here are some great ways to manage your own healthcare.
Research Your Family’s Health History
If you want to experience freedom regarding your healthcare, you should know your family’s medical history. By thoroughly understanding your family’s medical history, you’ll be able to manage certain aspects of your overall wellbeing.
For instance, if you know that you’re predisposed to certain conditions like diabetes, cancer, or cardiovascular disease, you can take preventative measures now to ensure optimal health and wellbeing in the future. The best way to obtain your family’s health history is to talk with as many loved ones as possible including children, grandparents, cousins, nieces, nephews, and siblings. In addition, consider reviewing family death and medical records to identify health conditions that your ancestors may have battled.
As soon as you obtain your family’s health history, make sure to share this important information with your physician. Although you aren’t expecting the doctor to manage your health, you can ask him/her for advice on modifying your lifestyle to encourage great wellbeing.
Maintain Records Of Important Medical Data
Did you know that taking charge of your health can be as simple as getting organized?
Make sure that you maintain a personal medical record that consists of health/mental conditions, medications, vaccination dates, blood type, doctors’ phone numbers, and emergency contacts. Throughout the year, you should strive to keep this medical record up to date.
Follow Up After Appointments with the Doctor
Although you may have a hard time remembering at first, taking charge of your healthcare involves following up after doctor appointments. As a general rule, “following up” may consist of scheduling additional appointments, getting clarification about a treatment or medication, relaying any side effects to the physician, and obtaining test results.
Select a Trusted Family Member or Friend to Help
In the event that you aren’t capable of making healthcare decisions, you can choose a trusted family member to act on your behalf. One of the main advantages of the CDPA program is that it allows consumers to hire close friends and family as caregivers. As long as a person is legally able to work as a caregiver, he/she can be hired.
Under the CDPA program, caregivers can perform many different services without obtaining a license or certification. Some of these services include preparing meals, giving insulin, bathing, dressing, providing wound care, and much more.
To ensure that these services are performed properly, consumers will train their caregivers.
Even if the caregivers aren’t trained properly, there is no need to worry when you have our reputable company by your side. Here at Trusted Choice Homecare, we work closely with consumers receiving services to make sure that the program is everything they hoped it would be and much more.
We want you to experience freedom regarding your healthcare, and we do everything possible to make that happen. Give us a call today at (716) 431-5550.
