Elder care is a great service for our elderly loved ones that have still can maintain their independence, but do prefer some help around the house and out on social outings. What is elder care? Elder care refers to that emotional support our dedicated CAREGiversSM provide to your loved one. There are many challenges that our senior citizens experience every day that we may overlook. Whether it’s help around the house with basic tasks, medication reminders, scheduling doctor’s appointments, assistance with errands like shopping, escorting your aging loved one to social engagements, or simply having somebody there for your loved one when they desire conversation or need basic assistance.
Studies show that an active mind is less likely to develop debilitating memory conditions like
dementia or Alzheimer’s. Similarly, physical activity and good nutritional assistance are always beneficial qualities to incorporate into the lives of our elderly loved ones. Socially speaking, an elderly person often needs assistance doing the things they love to do and having somebody there to offer them that support in engaging in events can be beneficial. In other words, the more active your loved is, typically, the happier they are as well.
