We have been trained all our lives to do things on our own. When we were babies our parents would teach us how to do the basic things for us to be independent when we grow up. Eventually, we do the same things to our own kids. Can you imagine if all of this independence will be taken away from us by aging?
As we age, our actions may be limited. We might have to abstain from eating our favorite sweets because it could cause our blood sugar to go up. We may have to avoid doing strenuous workouts because it can strain the muscle. At 24 Hours Care, In-Home Care in Newton MA, our main goal is promoting seniors’ independence.
What do we exactly mean by independent senior living?
It generally means giving the seniors the chance to be on their own despite aging. For seniors, it is an achievement to be able to stand on their own during their golden years. This means they can prepare their own meal, clean the house, regularly take medication, and live life to the fullest without any help.
However, let’s admit that over time, we would need someone to look after us. Not because we are weak, but because our health requires a different level of care. Thus, it is important that we get a personal caregiver who can provide our basic needs. This does not mean that we are overtaking your seniors’ lives. We just want to make sure that they are living comfortably.
A typical day at 24 Hours Care, a trusted name in Home Health Care Services, we would often prepare a care plan that is responsive to the needs of the patient. If our job is just to assist in doing light housekeeping, meal preparation, or even just reminding them of their medication, we make sure that we are able to serve them better.
Letting our seniors feel that they are not totally impaired from doing what they are used to is important. It does not only keep them healthy but it makes them emotionally positive as well.
