What is Eldercare?
As all of us grow older, we may face health issues that prevent us from living independently in our homes and managing our resources as appropriately as we did when we were younger. Eldercare is skilled assistance in varying levels provided by professionals to compensate for our lessening abilities to adequately do those things for ourselves. While Alzheimer's is a disease which is discussed in another section, growing old is normal and requiring assistance is nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed about. Instead, it represents an awareness that help would be beneficial and the presence of mind to seek that help in order to provide the quality of life to which we all aspire.
Activities of Daily Living
Activities of daily living (ADLs) are activities related to personal care. ADLs include bathing or showering, dressing, getting in or out of bed or a chair, using the toilet, managing medications and eating. If an elderly person is unable to perform one or more of these tasks for him or herself, their spouse, children or other loved ones often step in to help. But family caregivers may find themselves overwhelmed, even experiencing injury and stress-related health problems of their own. Help is available! But locating the right services from in-home care and adult day care to an assisted living or long-term care facility can be daunting.
