For many seniors, living as independently as possible is important. However, sometimes they need a helping hand, whether only for a few hours a day or for full-time care. If your loved one is having difficulties living alone, consider the benefits of assisted living care in a well-equipped and luxurious facility such as San Clemente Villas By The Sea.
For seniors, difficulties with daily tasks can translate into health hazards, both immediate and progressive. Trouble cleaning the home may lead to trips or falls due to clutter, while issues bathing, cooking, or managing medication can cause a downward turn in your loved one’s health. Assisted living care allows seniors to live independently whenever possible but provides the care they need when they are not capable of performing tasks themselves. Without the pressure to cook, clean, do laundry, or even struggle with bathing and personal grooming, seniors can enjoy easier and healthier lives. When you choose assisted living, your loved one will get the safe, supervised exercise they need, a balanced diet, and the management of medication to ensure they remain in the best of health.
Many seniors face daily challenges that may discourage them from getting the socialization they need for an enjoyable and happy life. Assisted living care provides not only caregiver companionship but the opportunity for socialization with others that may not otherwise be possible. Living in a retirement community provides your loved one with daily activities tailored to seniors of all levels of health, providing much-needed socialization, friendships, and a sense of community. Through assisted living, your loved one will receive the caring and mental support they need to maintain a positive outlook on life in their retirement years.

As they age, many seniors require medication on a daily basis for various health reasons. When many medications are required at different times of the day, seniors may have difficulty remembering when or how to take medication. Supervision and care may be required to help them remain healthy and live actively and independently.
Medication mismanagement occurs when a senior forgets to take medication or takes the wrong medication due to confusion. This can significantly impact his or her health and even cause further problems when medication is not managed properly. There are many reasons a senior might have difficulty taking medication. Memory issues or other cognitive problems may cause them to forget or misunderstand instructions regarding medication. Aging effects on the body may also make it difficult for a senior to read medication labels and instructions or even simply open the bottle to access their medication.
There are many solutions to help seniors avoid medication mismanagement. Depending on their needs, they may need loved ones or caregivers to manage medications for them. In some cases, a pillbox with each medication organized by day of the week and time of day is sufficient. Some seniors may need a family member or other caregiver who has spoken with the senior’s doctor and understands exactly how medication should be administered to call or visit to oversee medication. By providing a helping hand and a watchful eye, the right care can ensure that medication is taken properly and cannot be mismanaged.
