What’s the Purpose?
When the elderly move into an assisted living/care home setting, it is either because they can no longer care for themselves safely at home alone. They have suffered an injury or fall. Or they are simply declining in overall health. As care providers, we must remember these elderly individuals have lived a full life before reaching this point. The last thing they want is to have infrequent opportunities to be stimulated intellectually and physically. Your caregivers will learn tips to providing higher levels of activities.
