Here are some tips for elderly care from Today’s Caregiver to ensure your loved one feels secure and is less likely to become confused and agitated.

It’s important to give your elderly loved ones a feeling of control and sense of importance. Allowing them to make decisions will prevent them from becoming frustrated and annoyed.

The inability to move freely within their own home can create a sense of hopelessness and loss of this control. A Stannah Stairlift can help rid your loved one of this anxiety and reduce the stress brought upon by immobility. If you feel that a stairlift would benefit in your care for elderly, you can find more information about Stannah Stairlifts and how Stannah can help on this page. You will be pleasantly surprised at each stair chair lift available and the stair lift prices.

It’s important to limit choices and keep things simple to reduce stress while still maintaining a feeling of control for your loved ones. Learn more about caregiving at the Carers Australia website.
