What to Do When You Need Elderly Care for a Friend or Loved One
Updated: Sep 30, 2022
The realization that an elderly loved one cannot live independently can be a difficult one for their friends and family. Often, seniors resist the idea of elderly care because they mistakenly believe that they will lose all sense of independence. In order to maintain both health and happiness, elder care must provide an ideal balance of independence and safety.
Choosing the right elder care for your loved one can be challenging if you're not sure what to do. Choosing the right care option for your aging loved one, as well as having the difficult conversation with them, can be challenging. To guide your search for elderly care, consider the following factors:
Medications, medical conditions, and other medical needs of senior citizens.
"Community culture"; for example, choosing social, physical, educational, and recreational activities that appeal to seniors
