People tend to encounter a lot of challenges as they reach old age. Seniors experience a decline in strength and in balance and coordination that is why they are having a hard time accomplishing their daily tasks alone. However, despite facing these challenges, many seniors still prefer to live alone and that they would rather stay in a comfortable and familiar environment.
Listed below are some of the common challenges that the elderly face when living alone:
- Lack of companionship. Many seniors feel lonely when they have no one beside them. That is why there should be someone willing to provide elder care.
- Prone to trip and fall accidents. There may be some parts in their house that don’t have proper lighting and elevations that are dangerous for seniors.
- Remembering their medication. Due to the decline in their cognitive health, they might start to have difficulty remembering things.
- Not being able to eat nutritious meals. An elderly person may be unable to cook for themselves in their home.
