Elderly people struggling in own home
Lets face it we know many Elderly People struggling in own home. Every day we all know (common knowledge) that as we grow older our faculties become less sharp, more hesitant, etc. As well as frailty which could restrict our ability to do things such as taking our pet dogs -long walks etc.
Elderly people struggling in own home alone often find themselves beginning to find it challenging with things which in the past ,they would have taken in our stride. Some of them being less important than others, ranging from a mild hindrance to a real problem. For example many elderly people having to part company with their family pet is serious.
Of course the needs of the elderly are varied and individual, but here we take a closer look at three of them which are of quite high relevance.
1) Driving assistance
Yes, yes, we anticipate your answer! Rather like learning to ride a bicycle once you learnt it you never- forget it. Well, yes and no, you will never forget “ how“ but a deteriorating health condition could prevent you from being able to. Did this thought ever occur to you?
Well, we can cover this one for you- as most of our carers do hold a driving license. Yes of course, mostly they are not used to driving on the left hand side of the road, but you can bet on it with a small amount of coaching they will be able to drive you anywhere you wish.
2) Shopping assistance
In many ways there are many similarities associated with driving. None of us forget, or lose the knowledge of how to do shopping. But once again, you need to consider a few points.
CONCENTRATION: It can be very difficult for many elderly people to concentrate/focus on multi differing tasks during a visit to the supermarket. For example, you need to combine checking prices, comparing products, make sure you are not ripped-off by being more aware of all the dubious marketing offers, and last but not least – you need to pay, and then take your purchased things back to the car.
Imagine one day when you are old how would you cope with all these stressful things! However, with one of our carers accompanying you (a sharp pair of eyes and ears) you could just relax and enjoy the experience.
Don´t you want your parents to enjoy shopping as they did in the past? Of course we know you do. Answer- with our service it is not only achievable, but also affordable.

Loneliness can be really harmful and can seriously damage your health. No doubt about it and confirmed during numerous scientific researches.
