Caring for elderly relatives ought to be rewarding, but can often be stressful as you try to find the best solution. A good Home Care Company can be a possibility but they are not easy to come by and can be costly. Simply finding them a 'helping hand'; someone to pop in and out throughout the day might also work. However, if they want to remain safe and secure in their own home with companionship they may need to find someone to 'live in'. This kind of care not only supports the elderly with personal care but can also help to maintain the fabric of their home by making sure essential repairs are carried out and utilities are running properly.
The good news for our elderly loved ones is that seniors aged over 65 still have an average of about 18.90 remaining teeth. Only 24% have no remaining teeth at all, meaning that keeping teeth and gums healthy is a vital part of disease prevention. In this post, we discuss the biggest dental risks for mature persons, suggesting measures that carers and loved ones can take to keep seniors healthy and happy.
