Elderly Care Should be Cared
The world’s population is ageing rapidly. Between 2015 and 2050, the proportion of the world's older adults is estimated to almost double from about 12% to 22%. In absolute terms, this is an expected increase from 900 million to 2 billion people over the age of 60. These people who have made important contributions to society are faced up with both mental health challenges and suffering from physical health risks. And arising from that, elderly care is paid more attention all over the world.
Elderly care, or simply eldercare (also known in parts of the English-speaking world as aged care), is the fulfillment of the special needs and requirements that are unique to senior citizens. This broad term encompasses such services as assisted living, adult day care, long term care, nursing homes (often referred to as residential care), hospice care, and home care. Because of the wide variety of elderly care found nationally, as well as differentiating cultural perspectives on elderly citizens, cannot to be limited to any one practice. For example, many countries in Asia use government-established elderly care quite infrequently, preferring the traditional methods of being cared for by younger generations of family members.
Elderly care emphasizes the social and personal requirements of senior citizens who need some assistance with daily activities and health care, but who desire to age with dignity. It is an important distinction, in that the design of housing, services, activities, employee training and such should be truly customer-centered. It is also noteworthy that a large amount of global elderly care falls under the unpaid market sector.
Impaired mobility is a major health concern for older adults, affecting 50% of people over 85 and at least a quarter of those over 75. As adults lose the ability to walk, to climb stairs, and to rise from a chair, they become completely disabled. The problem cannot be ignored because people over 65 constitute the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population. Promoting independence in self-care can provide older adults with the capability to maintain independence longer and can leave them with a sense of achievement when they complete a task unaided. Older adults that require assistance with activities of daily living are at a greater risk of losing their independence with self-care tasks as dependent personal behaviors are often met with reinforcement from caregivers.
Technology changes our life. The invention of mobility scooter and electric powered wheelchair (EPW) change elderly people’s life and they have played an important role in the process of elderly care. The utilization of them helps caregivers save much time and manpower so as to save costs and at the same time, and these elder people can live a life with well-beings and dignity with the aid of mobility scooter and electric powered wheelchair. They will feel they are still capable of being independent so they will become optimistic and confident of not bothering others. This, on the other hand, can reduce the mental health risks arising from the feelings of inferiority, incapability and helplessness to a large extent. These elderly or even those with disability can have more convenient and happier solutions of travelling. Generally speaking, mobility and electric powered wheelchair can improve their later life and increase the sense of happiness.
