The need of establishing Senior Citizen homes

by Amisha G.

The stage of attaining seniority in life is the most challenging of all the phases.  Accompanied by lack of energy, inactiveness, falling hair, skin loosening, wrinkles and facing new challenges every day, a senior citizen has to endure it all. The only difference is that some get support from their family in this most difficult phase of their life while some don't. For those who do not receive enough physical, emotional or mental support from their loved ones, the concept of senior citizen homes is the most rewarding. 

According to an expert doctor at Senior Citizen care India, Senior citizen homes are the best places that provide senior citizens with the love, care and affection that they crave the most in this utmost challenging phase of their life.  From taking care of the basic requirements and personal grooming needs, senior citizens are treated with excellent medical facilities and are provided with mental support.  Old age does not treat everyone equally, for some this can be a boon where they have the support of their loved ones and they are physically fit and healthy. On the other hand, old age can be a bane for the others who are either suffering from severe physical or mental conditions and also lack emotional or financial support from their family. 

The sole purpose of writing this piece of content is to spread the word on the significance of establishing more new and better opportunities for deprived senior citizens of the nation by opening several senior citizen care homes where the beloved elderly can feel at home. 

A shelter for the homeless

Life can be extremely cruel at times and there are incidents and situations where the senior members of the family are left wandering on the streets. This is probably because of several reasons such as lack of financial aid from the family or that they're suffering from severe mental conditions or they have no one to care for them. It is in such cases that an old care home can provide a proper nesting place or permanent shelter to the needy and the homeless senior citizens of the country.  Most of the senior care homes are funded by charities, government or NGOs and do not demand any financial aid from the family for treating the needy and homeless senior members. 

A place where medical assistance is provided

As per the association of the best old age homes in Delhi, apart from just providing a mere shelter to the senior citizens, senior care homes also provide proper medical aid to them. Not only are there common illnesses treated with care but also major health conditions such as depression, mental trauma, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease are treated effectively. 

A place where Personal grooming needs are looked after

The team of doctors of the best old age homes in Delhi says that not all senior citizens are capable of self-caring or managing their grooming and hygiene habits; it is in such cases that the nursing staff at such senior care homes looks into the personal grooming needs of the senior members and provides them with the much-needed aid. 

Activities for self-growth and development

Senior care homes are not only the place where only the basic needs of the senior members, which include food nutrition, medical aid and personal grooming are fulfilled; but the team of staff and doctors also looks upon opportunities of developing their mental health. This is achieved by organising regular activities. 

Teaching them a new way to perceive life

Most of the senior care members that are found in such senior care homes are suffering from depression or feelings of isolation. Some of them even miss their family members or conversing with their loved ones. To help them deal with this difficult phase of their life, activities of morality or moral teachings are conducted in the High-quality senior citizen care centre in Delhi from time to time, so that they can develop a new and positive perception of seeing life.
