Declines in mental and physical health is typically quite evident, it’s also common for younger adults to feel as though they should be the ones to care for their elderly loved ones but that’s not strictly true, having a helping hand can make a huge difference to both yourself and your loved one who needs assistance.
There are lots of things we can do to help make it slightly better for our loved ones and steps we can take to help keep their independence at home.
After-all, home is where the heart is.
Taking Care of elderly Loved Ones
When it comes to looking after a loved one, it’s never a quick or easy task, as their dependence on you grows we often get left with a number of tasks to complete when visiting them
Arranging medical appointments
Managing money, bills & finances
Preparing and organising their medications
Ensuring they’re in a safe environment
Arranging social trips and interactions
Making sure they’re looked after if you have a trip planned
Being there when they need emotional support or comfort
All of these activities can take their toll on you, it’s difficult to be a carer for elderly whilst having a full-time life, family, life, etc.
Studies show that when you try to combat these activities alone you can become stressed, depressed, anxious and more.
