Does An Elder In Your Family Face These Health Issues? Home Healthcare Can Help

They say a man’s life is normally divided into five stages- infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and old age. While all these stages are inevitable, old age is seen as undesirable and problem-laden phase of life. Problems of ageing are generally noticed after 65 or 70 years of age. When we say ‘problems of ageing’ we do not necessarily mean finance or social. Health plays an important role as a cause or product of such problems…

–  Physiological problems

Old age is a period of physical decline. The major factors that decide the physical condition of an older are hereditary constitution, lifestyle and environmental factors, resting hours, and diet. Changes in nervous system have a marked influence on brain. A weakening regulatory mechanism affects the body temperature, making the elders feel change in weather conditions more profoundly. Bones brittle up in old age and are subject to fractures and breaks. Fatiguing happens often, making the doctor visits for family a routine.

Psychological problems

Apart from forgetfulness, older people are susceptible to psychotic depressions. Senile Dementia and Psychosis account for approximately 80% of psychotic disorders among older people. Hereditary factors can be a cause for Alzheimer’s syndrome in elders.

Emotional problems

Decline in mental ability makes older adults dependent on family members. Emotional stress, inadequate rest, and overwork make them prone to mental or cardiac disorders. As a wish to be involved in all family and work-related matters, and not all youngsters are sympathetic towards their condition. Loss of spouse during old age creates a feeling of loneliness and isolation. These emotional problems could lead to a nervous breakdown.

– Social problems

Quite frequently we come across a group of adults engaged in a fun activity in the park. That’s probably their only way of socialising. The social life for elders narrows down due to loss of work, death of relatives and friends, and weak health restricting physical activities. Their family becomes their society which is again confined to interpersonal relationship with family members. The loss of socialising is likely to make them lonely and isolated causing chronic health issues resulting in depression. 

Old age is a period of physical deterioration and social alienation. However, there’s always a way we can make our elders feel important and special without compromising on our work life.

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.
