‘Are they healthy?’ ‘Are they ‘happy?’
Those are the two most important questions that we always ask ourselves about our loved ones as they ease into their golden years. Of course, their health is always on our minds. We worry if they are taking their medicine; if they are doing their therapy; and the safety of their environment. But, we cannot forget their happiness. After all, happy people are often healthy people. So, how can we connect our loved ones happiness with their health? The answer lies where we are all most comfortable: in our own home. Home care for your loved one is the link that connects their health with happiness. It may be time to start looking at your options regarding senior home care. Ultimately, healthy aging starts at home.
Some seniors are very happy to reside in retirement homes or health care centres. It is understandable but, it is not an option that appeals to everyone. Some seniors may feel that they are not ready to move into a retirement resident; others may feel that there is a loss of independence; and still others may just not want to leave their homes because they are happy where they are. That’s good; staying in their home may be the healthiest choice. As senior care evolves and changes, having care provided in the home becomes a more viable option. For many, it may even be the best one. Here are a few reasons why healthy aging begins at home:
- Being in their own space allows seniors more control of their environment. They have more of a say on their physical surroundings, who helps with their care, and how they spend their time.
- Home health care workers can focus solely on the patient in front of them which allows for a more tailored and individualized care plan for your loved one.
- Family and friends can visit and help out more freely in the home.
- People are just naturally happier and more comfortable in their own homes. This sense of happiness sets a better state of mind which leads to a healthier life.
