In Home Senior Care in Burlingame, CA

Top 5 considerations for individuals as they prepare for the aging process…

1.   Access to medical care and other services; i.e., grocery stores
As we age it becomes more important to keep up with healthcare appointments; medical, dental, etc.
Older adults are also more prone to medical issues that may entail various follow up appointments.
Life will be much easier if your healthcare providers are just a short distance from your home.
The same holds true for easy access to basic needs such as food, clothing, pharmacy, etc.
2.   Access to friends.
Studies have shown that social interaction is a key component to living a longer, happier and healthier life.
3. Access to family or other resources.
Most older adults will need some type of assistance at some point.  Having family members nearby can be very helpful.  Living in a community with various resources such as transportation and home delivery meal services  can also help with activities of daily living that have become more challenging.
4. Home safety.
Living in a safe and manageable home will lower one’s risk of a fall.  Here are some alarming statistics    in San Mateo County…

a.  1 out of 3 adults 65 years of age or older will fall.
b.  Falls account for 20% of accidental deaths in individuals age 75 to 84.
c.  Falls account for 80% of accidental deaths in individuals over the age of 85.
5. Update estate planning.
Making decisions about your financial and medical wishes should be done with a clear head and before a crisis occurs.  This will give you and your family peace of mind.
