Old age is a sensitive phase; elderly people need care and comfort to lead a healthy life without worries and anxiety. Lack of awareness regarding the changing behavioral patterns in elderly people at home leads to abuse of them by their kin.
Older persons should have access to adequate food, water, shelter, clothing and health care through the provision of income, family and community support and self-help. Elderly individuals should have the opportunity to work or to have access to other income-generating opportunities.
When servicing senior communities treating clients with respect and privacy at all times is a must. We know that the job isn't always a walk in the park but being patient and kind is a useful tool. Do the right thing even when it's not acknowledged by others or convenient for you. An individual with integrity is honest and keeps their word even when it's difficult. Having compassion gives us the ability to want to approach and care for other people.
The most important factors of engaging with seniors are:
Financial Security. Some seniors require assistance in managing their money
Independence. Some senior citizens struggle to take care of themselves and complete everyday tasks.
