Elderly Care

As the saying goes ” Old is Gold ” , the senior citizens of our community are treasure to us.
The old people have spent all of their lives for their families. They raised, support and made them able to live in the society. They gave them values, courage and motivation to face all hardships. So, when they get old and need moral and physical support, it is the family responsibility to stand beside them. Give them respect, love and care as they gave you when you are dependent on them.

In addition to that, there are circumstances when the family is not able to take proper care of their elders. Such as, financial problems or the old one has no one left in the family or they have been discarded by their families and left to fend for themselves.

Helpage takes it as top most priority to make sure that the old, the lonely and the deprived can once again smile due to the efforts and help provided to them. Elderly care emphasises the social and personal requirements of senior citizens who need some assistance with daily activities and health care, but who desires to Age With Dignity.

Efforts towards the prevention includes:

  • Spend time with seniors or take them out to a cafe, the movies or another place if they are able to move.
  • To ensure they get proper nutrition, make arrangements for the healthy food or food supplements.
  • Organises events for the seniors that focuses on physical activity which not only benefits their health and wellbeing but also introduce them to new people.
  • Conduct and encourage hearing and vision tests followed by treatment if required.
  • Conduct regular health checkups and medicines at their place.
  • Provide extra support to seniors who have recently lost their spouse.
  • Hugging or holding hands……..as research has shown that platonic touch from someone who cares can lower stress and promote feelings of wellbeing.
