At Best Home Care, our focus is finding quality home care for those in need, whether that is homecare for the elderly, pediatric homecare or homecare for those with disabilities. Each individual receiving home care services has unique needs that to be addresses and those suffering from Tinnitus are no different. Tinnitus is a condition that is characterized by a ringing or buzzing sound in one or both ears.
Below are some tips to help home caregivers meet the needs of those living with Tinnitus:
- Know the Triggers: Oftentimes, the symptoms of Tinnitus can be made worse by consuming caffeine, alcohol, sodium, and smoking.
- Play Music: Listening to soft music or ambient sounds can help distract from the constant ringing. There are plenty of apps for music or soothing sounds to check out that may be beneficial!
- Plan Relaxing Activities: Stress can severely aggravate Tinnitus. Incorporating yoga or tai chi into a daily routine can make a big difference as well as just regular exercise like walking.
- Ensure Quality Sleep: Fatigue can make symptoms worse and if Tinnitus impacts sleep, it can turn into a vicious cycle. Keep a regular sleep schedule, keep the bedroom dark and cool, use a white noise machine, and keep patients from eating or exercising 2-3 hours before going to sleep.
- Find a Support Group: Talking and sharing about experiences with Tinnitus can provide some support as well as give the opportunities to share these tips with others and pick up some new ones!
