Another year has come and gone, can you believe it? It’s already time to reflect on the year behind us and prepare for the year ahead. Here at Unlimited Care Cottages, things have been busy! Pause a moment with us, and take a look at 2017 with UCC:
Creating a Safe Environment for Seniors. It is never an easy decision to place a senior loved one in a facility that provides personal living care. It is hard on the loved one and hard on the family. It is even more difficult when the loved one is suffering from dementia. With the aging of the baby boomer generation, the cases of dementia in the U.S. is expected to increase dramatically in the coming years. Dementia also presents unique challenges to personal caregivers. These challenges are best met through the services known as memory care.
Depression Remains a Challenge. As the body changes with age, life can become more difficult. You’re not able to do some things you could before. Many other things become harder on your own. For some, you lose independence quickly. For others, you lose it slowly, but you still lose it to some degree. You may face illness and disease you’ve never had. Many also suffer from a lack of social interaction. All these factors increase your chances for depression as you age.
Keeping Seniors Safe at Home. As our loved ones grow older, it is increasingly possible that an accident could take place which may leave them seriously injured. According to an AARP study, nearly 90% of people age 65 and over want to stay in their family home as they age. To accommodate this, it’s important to make sure they’ll remain safe.
It has been our deepest honor and pleasure to take care of your aging loved ones this year. Thank you for continuing to trust us with their care and well being. At Unlimited Care Cottages, we look forward to another year giving our guests dignity and the best care possible. Here’s to an incredible New Year’s Eve and a safe and blessed 2018. Happy New Year!
