Some things are beyond our control – they will happen no matter how hard you try to stop them and more than that, they are irreversible. One of such things is aging.
Aging, according to me, is a beautiful process and should be gracefully accepted. However, the society we live in tends to show it as something which makes an individual dull and lonely. However, this depends completely on an individual. Accepting it but making sure that there is no compromise in terms of their living style and enjoying their life is what can make aging a smooth process.
However, it cannot be denied that there are a few psychological changes that one undergoes after the age of 50.
Let’s see what those changes are:
·Slowing of reaction time:
Slower reaction time is one of the most common psychological changes that comes with aging. According to various studies, one’s reflexive abilities start reducing during their 30s and one’s reaction time significantly slows down as they cross the age of 50.
It is ok because it is just part and parcel of life and it’s always better to accept it rather than trying to fight it.
In such scenarios, if needed one can always resort to taking elder care services. By subscribing to health care services at home, you can ensure that your daily needs and activities are taken care of by a caregiver. So even if your reflex/reaction time is slow, there is always someone by your side to take care of you.
·Decreased attention span:
As you get in your 50s, your attention span gradually decreases. So tasks such as working for long hours, watching TV shows or playing time-consuming games may not be that easy to perform as they were earlier.
Memory loss is another very common psychological change that is accompanied with aging. Memory loss can get severe with increasing age. So while it may start with forgetting keys, remembering names to more serious problems such as dementia and Alzheimer’s.
In extreme cases such as mentioned above, it is always better to take caregiver services which are available under the elder home care services. One can take services of a 12/24 hour attendant or caregiver which can assist the elder with their activities of daily living (ADLs) and also be their companion.
·Increased risk of stroke:
One’s health deteriorates with age, due to which the chances of having a stroke also increases. According to Stroke Center, the risk of having a stroke more than doubles each decade after the age of 55 and nearly three-quarters of all strokes occur in people over the age of 65.
If your elder or loved one has health issues and is struggling with a medical condition, you should look at the option of nurses services at home. These services enable you to take services of qualified and trained nurses who can look after the medical requirements of an elder/patient and also perform regular monitoring. This also decreases the chances of encountering an emergency because the nurse, sensing any sign of trouble, will provide the needed medical assistance to the elder.
An elder is most comfortable in their home, so even if it’s about taking care of health and medical issues, they would want to be treated in their home itself. Emoha Elder Care believes in the same. They provide the necessary support and services right at the doorstep of an elder.
