Making Aging in Place in Omaha Possible
Is aging in place part of your loved one’s plan for the future? If they’re already beginning to struggle with basic activities, you may wonder if it’s realistic for your loved one to continue living on their own. At Visiting Angels® Omaha, it’s our goal to provide seniors in our community with the personalized support they need to remain in the comforting, familiar environment of their own homes throughout their golden years.
While the majority of elderly adults want to age in place, physical and cognitive decline can make it difficult for them to maintain their own well-being. Arthritis, mobility limitations, and memory disorders all pose an obstacle to safely and comfortably complete basic activities of daily living alone. However, with the support of a dedicated caregiver, older individuals can have confidence as they go about their day-to-day routines at home.
Understanding the Importance of Aging in Place
It’s understandable for concerned family members to worry about the safety of their loved ones. As a result, it’s common for families to encourage their loved ones to move out of their homes and into retirement centers or senior care facilities.
Although they make this recommendation with the best of intentions, a move away from home often isn’t the best option for elderly adults’ overall well-being. Such a move can be emotionally traumatic for seniors and can lead to a loss of independence. Without the ability to determine their own daily schedules and participate in the activities that once brought them joy, many older individuals experience a decline in their mental and emotional well-being once they leave home.
