Why older adults need special care and assistance?

“Children are not with us in our old age. We are left alone at home. Sometimes they are in a far-away foreign land and visit us only occasionally. Of course, they send us money. Yet….it is not that easy to bear with the feeling of loneliness. We sit for a few minutes in the open. Then retire into the room. Glance through the newspaper. Watch TV. Most of the time there is no one even to chat. That is how our time is spent. This is a painful experience for us.”

This is not a mere chiding, but a serious issue that needs special attention. When older adults are in the feel of loneliness, they stressed themselves, getting into depression and eventually they suffocate and live in frustration. This will be the most crucial pre cause for dementia. 

Older parents living alone is not healthy. They have a dynamically changing vitals and they need close monitoring on them similarly as small children. They have the risk of falling and geriatric syndromes like urine incontinence. These will lead to acute health effects.

 The causes will be severe with vision and hearing impairments. When considering an emergency situation like a house fire, older adults who suffer from acute vision and hearing will be in great danger. Furthermore, the risk of property theft, threatening will adversely influence chronic diseases like strokes.

 Moreover, it is immoral to treat older adults as retarded, as they were once cared and cherished us. As children and the community, we may busy and preoccupied with life, but yet older adults needed to have cared, loved and respected. It is our personal responsibility to take care of the people who once cared for us. Hence, giving special attention and care is inevitable.

 The most significant thing is that 60+ International has developed the most technologically feasible applications, so older adults can be cared, loved and as well as monitored effectively.
