Often, the elderly find themselves socially isolated from the world around and either partially or completely dependent on a caregiver to fulfill their basic necessities. This, along with other age-related disorders, could cause a lot of stress and despondency. Aging is a fact of life and therefore it is extremely important to focus on healthy aging strategies and methods.
In old age, physical, psychological and cognitive wellbeing all need attention. Mental health problems including depression and anxiety are affect an elderly persons ability to perform various physical tasks.
Depression is, unfortunately, a common occurrence among older adults. The fact that their activities and social interactions are more limited, and their nearest and dearest are often living far away, makes the adjustment to old age harder.
The geriatric population also tend to have neurological problems which impact their cognitive and decision making abilities. Thus, most elderly individuals face problems with self-perception and self-concept.
Many older adults worry about their loss of dignity or loss of control as their physical abilities deteriorate. It is common for them to feel fearful of becoming a burden to their loved ones. Thus, our therapies focus not only on them but also on their family members to see how a healthy home environment can be maintained.
Addressing these problems is important to alleviate emotional suffering and improve physical and mental health and promote a better quality of life.
