Elderly Care

Elderly Care

Caring for the elderly is not as easy as it might seem at first glance. This takes a lot of time and a lot of patience to maintain the normal psychological and physical condition of an elderly person. It is important to take into account a lot of factors, including social and psychological issues. Home care services allow your loved one to stay living in their own home whilst getting the help and support they need, whether they’re just looking for company or need someone to keep the house clean and prepare meals.

Home care is a great solution for someone who needs extra help in and around the house, as it allows them to remain independent and live happily within familiar surroundings. It’s also a great relief for family members who are not  able to provide support every time it’s needed or live far away and need peace of mind that their loved one is safe and well.

Elderly Care Recommendations

It is important for the elderly person to get enough sleep.

The person can be tired, so he needs at least 7-8 hours of sleep. Prolonged, sound sleep ensures the normalization of the functioning of the nervous system, which  is in a depleted state. Depletion of the central nervous system can cause insomnia, which can weaken the body and worsen the emotional state.

TRY TO PREVENT ACCIDENTS

You should be attentive while taking care of the elderly. To minimize the chances of falls and injury, you should take the following steps: install handrails in the bathroom, and put rubber mats on the floor; lay carpet on the floors in the rooms; all unnecessary furniture must be removed.

 COMFORTABLE CONDITIONS

Living conditions for older people should be as comfortable as possible. A separate space should be allocated for living. This room should be systematically ventilated, well lit, and have a comfortable temperature. The bed should be at hip level - then it will be convenient to lie down and get up on it, without using outside help. The chair in the room should not be deep so that it is convenient to rise from it.

The elderly need proper nutrition to stay healthy and enjoy a comfortable life.

Have a nutritionist or caregiver go over a daily meal plan to know what foods best fit that person’s lifestyle. Meals can be prepared weekly so it is easier for the senior citizen to heat and eat a warm meal every day. Programs such as Meals on Wheels ensure that an elderly person receives at least one healthy meal daily.
