The basic function of a kidney is to filter wastes through the blood, regulate blood pressure and maintain a balance of salt and minerals. When kidneys fail to function, the following symptoms take effect: nausea, swelling in ankles, insomnia, shortness of breath, and build-up of wastes in the blood. What causes kidneys to fail in the first place? Drugs, traumatic blows to your lower back, and pregnancy complications are just three of many ways that stop kidneys from functioning properly.
When you feel physically weak and have a hard time breathing, it’s hard to maintain an upbeat attitude every single day when it seems like you are losing your ability to do simple tasks like meal preparations and household chores. The emotional support you need may come much later in the day when family or friends come home from work. But during the day is when you need help the most. That is where caregivers come in. With their companionship, energy and skills, they provide you the assistance you need to get the job done – whether it’s taking you to the clinic for dialysis treatments, dispensing the correct medication and preparing meals in accordance with the doctor’s orders, caregivers and home health aides are there to help!
