February EFAP News: Our Aging Loved Ones

Successful Aging in Place

Did you know most seniors want to remain in their own home for as long as possible? Despite the growing number of retirement communities, most seniors prefer to remain in their own home. This helps seniors maintain a feeling of independence as well as a sense of security. Wouldn’t you want to stay in your home that you have worked so hard for? To keep an aging loved one in their home for as long as possible, it is important to ask some difficult questions and often accommodations must be made.

Simple additions to improve safety like shower bars and raised toilet seats can make a world of difference to an elder’s well-being, as can evaluating an elder’s home for issues with handicap accessibility.

Home maintenance can be a factor in an elder’s ability to stay at home, especially if your elder loved one is an avid gardener, or DIY aficionado. Setting up services and tapping into community resources to assist with activities like lawn care, housekeeping and home maintenance can help many elders avoid injuries otherwise commonly associated with more physical activities that have become too much for them.

Transportation is another key area to look at. Is your elder still able to drive? Do they get lost easily? As they age it can become important for elders to access community transportation services or have a relative drive for them.

Emergency Planning is possibly the most important resource to have in place in order to keep an elder in their home. For many elders this means having a Personal Emergency Response Systems, while others may have relatives or neighbors who can check on them regularly.

This month be sure to register and attend the webinar,

“What to Look Out for As Our Loved Ones Age”  Learn more about the challenges of aging, and some of the options for caring for our aging loved ones. A full description and registration information is listed in the sidebar to the right. If you’re unable to attend you can log on to the website at a later time to view the archived presentation.
