Why does an in-home caregiver service like Abby Services talk about medical cannabis for veterans?

Abby Services has a mission to support the seniors in Fort Myers and throughout Lee County. We accomplish that by helping to find the best private caregivers in Lee County. Abby Services works with many seniors who are veterans, as does the Grateful Veterans Group.

The Grateful Veteran is an SWFL nonprofit organization that has a simple goal; to help veterans to heal. They believe medical cannabis for veterans has the potential to change the lives of those who have sacrificed everything.

Through their education and guidance, The Grateful Veteran has helped many veterans on their own journey of healing.

Senior veterans often face unique challenges as they age, including physical ailments and mental health issues resulting from their service. In recent years, medical cannabis for veterans has emerged as a promising option for addressing some of these challenges.

The use of medical marijuana can provide seniors with relief from chronic pain, reduce symptoms of conditions like PTSD and anxiety, and improve overall well-being. Additionally, in-home care has become an increasingly popular choice for senior veterans, allowing them to receive personalized care and support in the comfort of their own homes.

In-home care services can range from assistance with daily activities to skilled nursing care, providing seniors with the necessary support to maintain their independence and quality of life. Together, the combination of medical cannabis for seniors and in-home care can offer senior veterans a holistic approach to managing their health and well-being in their later years.

If you or someone you know is a veteran who could use their help please reach out to them and be sure to follow The Grateful Veteran on Facebook.

You can also do your own part to help remove the stigma medical cannabis for veterans has by educating yourself on the benefits of this beneficial medicine.

Abby Services Supports seniors who are considering medical marijuana and medical cannabis for veterans.

In his work with local seniors in Fort Myers and Cape Coral, Scott Strachan RN saw a trend. Many seniors were suffering from pain, anxiety, insomnia, and other afflictions commonly treated with medical marijuana. Through his discussions, he was finding routinely that seniors were curious about the benefits of medical marijuana but were either intimidated about the process and stigma of marijuana as medicine or had tried and failed to use marijuana as medicine.

Abby Services saw this as an educational opportunity and began meeting with seniors to help them through the process of obtaining a medical marijuana card and supporting them through their journey. This was accomplished through free support groups and personal consultations. 

Scott Strachan RN had professional clinical experience with hospice, oncology, and general home care. He saw the many opportunities where medical marijuana would help seniors.

Unfortunately with COVID in-person medical marijuana consultations and medical cannabis for veterans support groups were put on standby.

However, Abby Services recommends anyone considering medical marijuana contact Dr. Sonn and his team at The Iona Cannabis Clinic. They have a well-informed staff who are there to help. AARP also has some informative articles on medical marijuana.
