Nowadays, Americans are living longer than they were just a few generations ago. Thanks to advances in medicine and technology, people are staying healthy, active, and vibrant members of their community for much longer. However, aging also comes with certain pitfalls and hurdles. One of these challenges is a process that is described as cognitive decline or cognitive impairment.
As seniors grow older, life changes, and there’s no getting around it.
Spouses get sick and die, children grow and move away, diseases come and go (or come and stay) and often, it gets difficult for the senior to do the things he or she once did.
In these situations, many seniors and their families begin to consider home health care.
In a show of appreciation, we received the following email about one of our lovely aides:
I’m writing this email to say thank you for sharing an amazing aide with us. Omotolla Williams came to us in July and since her arrival things have really changed for our family. My mother Louise Aarons is a blind woman who has Parkinson’s disease and dementia.
When we prepare for our retirement and old age, we worry about things like money, future living situation, kids, grand kids, friends etc. What many of us forget to take into account is how boring life age can become. In our older age, kids are busy in their own lives and our friends live in different parts of the city or country.
