HOME NURSING

Home Nurses support elderly in their homes; they are, however, more like caregivers than nurses. The elderly are often single or living alone without family and have no one to care for them. They are living in extreme poverty. The home nurses do everything for them. They clean, wash, go shopping, take them to the hospital, take them out for a walk, make sure they take their medication and cook for them, if needed. In the course of their work, the nurses’ often come across other elderly who also need help. Currently, our nurses are helping many elders who need help every day. These people needing help have been divided among 4 nurses. Home nurses are committed to provide the best quality help they can, which is why they are always learning new skills.
TRAINING
Hida Health workshops
Workshops and seminars are conducted on health related topics such as First Aid, HIV-AIDS, women and children’s health and to spread awareness about Malaria, rabies at local institutions. School health workers are given basic health training in applying dressings, treating wounds, medical hygiene, upgrading clinical equipment, and other health issues.
DONORS CLUB
HIDA-UGANDA runs a blood donors club consisting of more than 500 members. These donors always remain ready to donate blood whenever a patient is need of blood in the neighboring hospitals. This has saved of patients the headache of looking for a donor when there is a need. It has made the task of the hospitals much easier as well. In the process, we have been able to save many precious human lives.
