Four Ways to Benefit From Non Medical Senior Care

According to the 2014 Census Bureau report, the number of senior citizens is on the rise. In fact, by 2050, projections indicate the population over 65 will comprise 20.9% of the population. Obviously, good medical care plays a key role in determining the longevity of the elderly but what’s often just as important is non medical care. Even though it can be difficult for seniors and their family members to determine if non medical care is necessary, the following are four ways that illustrate the benefits of non medical senior care:

1. Assistance with daily needs such as dressing, bathing or getting to the bathroom.  Caregivers also provide light housekeeping, grocery shopping and assist in meal preparation.

2. If your family doesn’t live close by or doesn’t have enough time to provide the care you need, a non medical caregiver helps with medication reminders as well as transportation to medical appointments.  They can be a crucial bridge between the senior and their family by providing updates on the senior’s health and well-being.

3. You need companionship.  Non medical caregivers are there when you need someone to talk to, want to share memories or just news about daily events. They can also help plan and promote more social activities.

4. You simply want to stay living independently.  Non medical care often helps seniors avoid being placed in more dependent senior facilities.  You get to maintain your own schedule and make your own decisions.  All the things we sometimes take for granted.

Non medical care can play an important role in the lives of seniors as well as their families because even a little help goes a long way to maintaining a better quality of life and independence.  For more information on non medical senior care and Best Care Home Health Agency, contact us.
