Senior support – it’s actually affection, solace, and comfort
People have various reasons why they dread facing old age or why they tend to fear getting old. Some are afraid to battle the reality of not having anyone to lean on or not having someone to count on during those times. Senior support is what most people would want and need during those years. It’s one of the essential things that the elderly hope to have.
Adult housing and elderly care wouldn’t be just enough, the senior support that most of the elderly people want is that of families and friends. Wouldn’t it be more comfortable, safer, and more secure for them to have people you know, trust, and love surround you and extend their moral and financial support? It’s not supposed to be a hard thing or act to do because this demonstration of little concern is the senior support that the elderly crave for. It may be true that one senior support another senior in those centers and institutions, but when you really think about it, the seniors who offer such care and understanding are not the people whom they’ve reached out and whom they’ve longed to love them. If only the senior support that families give to their family members who are in the senior facilities are strong and profound enough, then these elderly would truly enjoy their last remaining years.
When you decide to offer senior support to your elderly relatives, make sure that you’re committed enough to do it for a very long time or until they finally wouldn’t need it anymore. Learn to give what you have and what you can as your senior support to those whom you want to receive it — especially those who have helped, cared, and loved you when they were still well and strong enough to do so.
Giving the much needed senior support that most elderly people are looking for these days may simply be achieved by extending even just a little time and effort to meet them halfway. Try to offer what they truly want — a shoulder to lean on, a hand to hold on to, a touch that heals, understanding eyes, ears that listen, voices that soothe, hugs that console, and a heart that loves.
When people mention senior support, it’s not actually referring to the financial support that most people avoid or the physical support that can just be given by the caregivers or volunteers, but it’s actually more of the moral support — that only families, relatives, and friends, can fully give, compensate, and share.
