Determination of health

Of course, as I have been harping about for the past few days, seniors get cold for more than one reason. It is important for caregivers to make the determination of what type of condition they believe warrants actual medical attention and which ones can be solved with a cozy warm blanket, a sweater or a sweatshirt.

A key to showing your clients that you believe that With Age Comes Respect and helping them to age gracefully is to realize what types of changes they can possibly experience and for what reasons. (That, my friend, is why I do research and why you read what I write!) The more we know the better we become as elderly caregivers!

Aging cannot be halted for our parents, our clients or even for ourselves. What we can do is prepare our clients, parents and family members for the changes that are occurring, could occur and which ones can be prevented. We learn this through research, hard work and even just keeping our eyes open so that we become more aware of any changes taking place.

Once we are aware, we can do whatever it takes to make changes to ensure our clients’ health, happiness and independence for as long as possible. That is why we are there, right? Keep up the great work!
