Aged care – Independent Living for the Elderly

Aged care can be extremely challenging which requires attentive support, independence and adequate care for the elderly. Loneliness is considered as a serious public health issue which can impact blood pressure and is also closely linked to depression. With community initiatives in an aged care facility, one can improve an older person’s quality of life.
Maintaining independence for the elderly is integral to their quality of life. Along with independence, it is important to ensure that the care needs are met in an aged care facility. The quality of care services should be adequate to ensure independent and happy living for the elderly.

In an aged care facility, efforts should be made to ensure that you don’t provide assistance when not needed as that would help mobility of elders and also make them feel independent and respected. It is important to provide high quality care and a clean, safe and hygienic environment for the elderly.
