Why is elderly care important?
Needing a little help is an inevitable part of getting older. Regardless of healthcare needs or specialist requirements, the structure of our lives change as we reach old age. Elderly care enables people to continue living as they choose, and where they choose, with extra support as and when they need it.
DID YOU KNOW? The UK population is ageing. By 2039, the number of people age 75 and over is expected to double from 5 million to nearly 10 million. Meaning there is going to be an even bigger demand for care.
By offering homecare for elderly people in their own home, we enable our Clients to maintain dignity and independence in familiar surroundings. Elder care is important for many, as a way of completing practical, day-to-day activities safely. For many older people across East Lancashire and Ribble Valley, it is often vital for combating loneliness.
For Clients with dementia, elderly care at home is vital for providing a calm, reassuring and familiar structure. For others, elder care offers comfort, knowing that there’s always someone you can rely on.
