Happy New Year - Happy Older Years

The New Year is like an annual alarm clock. It reminds us that another year has passed and it's time to wake up to life's realities. Among them is the fact that we're not getting any younger! This year, set your sights beyond 2017 and put some resolutions on your list that will make it more likely you'll be able to live the way you want as you grow older.

Difficult Conversations - Giving Up the Car

An elderly loved one may resist when a family member raises concerns about his or her driving because he or she wants to remain independent as long as possible. For an elderly driver, surrendering the car keys signifies a lifestyle change, affecting where the senior lives, who he or she sees and which activities he or she pursues. A senior may feel devastated and afraid of losing control and autonomy. Therefore, it’s important to consider his or her viewpoint and understand his or her concerns about handing over the keys.

Planning For The Future of Our Older Citizens

While it can be troubling to see forgetfulness, lapsed hygiene and other signs of ageing affect your older loved one, the good news is that many elderly are actually relieved their families notice and care. In many cases, the older person can remain independent at home with the support of family members and professional in-home caregivers like Right at Home.

Easing the Burden of Family Carers

Approximately 274,000 family carers throughout Ireland offer home care to their ill, disabled or aging spouse, but often at the risk of stress-related conditions including anxiety, depression, headaches, backaches and sleep deprivation. Eventually, care for an ailing loved one can lead to burnout in which the carer is depleted physically, mentally and emotionally.
