Health management when an elder is recovering from an illness
As people grow older, immunity decreases and a senior may fall ill more often. They may even have to be hospitalized when they are sick. Usually, family members prefer to take the elder home as soon as they start feeling better because staying at a hospital is not a feasible option due to many reasons.
One, it can be too expensive to keep the senior in the hospital until they completely recover. Two, it can be irksome for the family members to have to travel to and from the hospital. Three, the hospital may ask you to leave once the senior is out of danger as they may need the bed for a more critical patient.
But, once you get the recovering senior home, they will need 24×7 attention. They will need medical management, pain management and some may even be non-ambulant. It is also impossible to keep the home as hygienic as the hospital and often, the senior whose immunity is already low may have a relapse and be hospitalized again.
Transient care is the answer to your problem
How great would it be if your elder can recover at home with all the care that they would get at the hospital?

Handling chronic pain as you age
As age catches up, so do aches and pains. Seniors are often managing and living with chronic pain. It can be a temporary phase following an injury or surgery, or it can last for months and even for the rest of their lives. Living with constant pain is no walk in the park and a senior needs sympathy and support to help deal with it.
Seniors mistakenly think that chronic pain comes with age and they have to learn to live with it. They manage the best way they can even if it means giving up on the lifestyle that they were used to. But, chronic pain can be diagnosed and treatments and pain management methods can be used to deal with the pain and improve quality of life.
Malnutrition in seniors is cause for concern
Good nutrition is important at any age, but it becomes a more serious cause for concern as a person ages.

A man is struggling to find a parking space. “Lord,” he prays. “I can’t stand this. If you open a space up for me, I swear I’ll give up the drink and go to church every Sunday.”
Suddenly, the clouds part and the sun shines on an empty parking spot.
Without hesitation, the man says: “Never mind, I found one!”
