Understanding and Overcoming Problems Faced in Old Age

Understanding and Overcoming Problems Faced in Old Age

Old age is considered to be the last stage of one’s life. It is associated with problems that arise due to deteriorating health, psychological aspects, changing social relationships and finances. 

In this blog post, let us understand how caregivers help senior citizens manage the changes in their lives. 

Psychological Issues

Depression, dementia, and Alzheimer’s are some of the psychological issues that affect seniors. Being patient, paying attention to them, talking and encouraging them to talk about their happy experiences of the past, helping them set and follow a particular routine are some ways in which seniors can be brought out of the depression. 

Physiological Issues

Old age results in a gradual weakening of the body. Seniors are not as active as they were when young. Lifting heavy weights and performing tasks that require too much energy may result in adverse effects. 

Caregivers provide elderly care in Chandigarh by helping with their day to day activities and helping them perform light exercises to stay fit. They also try to keep the house neat and tidy so that the seniors do not slip or trip and fall. A broken bone takes a long time to heal in old age. 

Social and Emotional Issues

It is not easy to limit social interaction for an active person. Seniors find it very hard to adjust to the constraints that prevent them from socializing as before. Caregivers try and fill the void by becoming a friend and a listener. Playing board games, taking care of their food and medication, assuring that they will always be cherished will help seniors overcome the feeling of isolation and neglect.

Testimonials

We had hired a patient care attendant for my wife who was recuperating after a hip surgery and was completely bed ridden. Youcare carefully analyzed our requirement and understood the preferences and nature of my wife before attaching a caregiver to us. Our caregiver was very caring, punctual and always had a smile on her face. She not only attended to my wife`s needs but also encouraged her to become independent. Within 6 months my wife could actually start walking. I will really recommend YouCare to everyone in need of professional care services.

I have been a client with YouCare for the past 2 years. Their babysitter is now like a member of our family who we can trust and rely upon for taking care of each and every need of our 4 year old daughter. This is a professional organisation managed by well educated professionals wanting to do good work and provide exceptional services. Will certainly recommend to all working couples to reach out to them.

We had hired a nanny from YouCare for our grandchild. My son was in town and needed help with his new born baby and elder child. Our caregiver was very loving, trained and a thorough professional. She took very good care of both the kids and ensured that the entire family was comfortable while she was around. We were very satisfied with Team YouCare and their services.
