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? It is projected that there will be an additional 7.5 million people aged 65 years and over in the UK in 50 years’ time. This means that there will also be an increase in 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 Reading & Wokingham, 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.
