Care in ageing is very different from curative and medical care. Caring is more related to giving the elderly a better quality of life. It concerns taking care of their daily needs, prevention of accidents, protection from diseases, maintaining their health conditions whatever it maybe, dismissing loneliness and other situations that descend on an elderly person.
The cost to maintain an elderly-care home is high. It has to pay for medicine, meals, physiotherapist, medical check up, housekeeping, laundry, transportation, equipment, medical devices, clothing, caregivers, staff, utilities other essential facilities.
The heaviest cost can come from rehabilitation costs for dementia, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, cancer and other diseases that can likely afflict an elderly person.
So your financial help and other kinds of support will be deeply appreciated.
