Home remedies for seniors – Modern medicine has finally recognized seniors as having unique needs beyond just aging. Not all ailments or diseases present the same symptoms / have similar cures especially in our senior population.
There are several keys to understand when taking care of seniors. First, a big part of taking good care of seniors is realizing that seniors may have unique needs. They may be less flexible about what they are willing and not willing to do, or eat and not eat, so it is important to be patient and to explain the relevant health benefits clearly several times. Sometimes you may have to step back and ‘give it time’; that is just the nature of it.
Second, recognize that seemingly insignificant things like social meaning and respect can play a significant role in a senior’s health condition. Studies have shown that in Japan, the life expectancy is often extremely high partly because of the great respect the society has for its elders. The elder the wiser – this is not necessarily the attitude in the West, where growing old seems to be seen at times as a negative; with old people looked down upon. This is something that you can change in your household.
