Even though we all pray for long life, good health and prosperity, the ageing process must happen. As the saying goes, if you dont grow old, you die young. Based on this, we will happily accept growing old gracefully.
No one wants to think of themselves as growing old. It is much easier to think of others, e.g. parents, older uncles and aunts. It is therefore essential to recognise the ageing process of ourselves and our loved ones.
There are a few steps you can put in place to understand when you, your parents or loved ones need help as they age.
This article by Daily Caring outlines seven key steps to take when you, your parents or your loved ones need help in the ageing process.
The steps include:
Assessing parent's needs in managing everyday life
Assess your needs and capability to support them.
Involve parents in the process
Assess home safety hazards.
Have a simple line of communication
