If you’ve been having a difficult time convincing your aging adult that senior care providers can help her, conservation of energy might be a good topic to include. What this means is that your elderly family member isn’t spending energy on mundane tasks, like housework, that can take a lot of energy to manage. She can then use that energy elsewhere in her life.
Some Activities Are Much More Difficult for Aging Adults.
Some of the regular activities that make up running a household can take a lot more out of your elderly family member than they might take out of you or someone else. The idea of tackling exhausting activities, such as laundry or cleaning, can even be a factor in your senior putting those tasks off longer than she might really want to.
Illness Can Be a Factor.
If your aging adult has a chronic illness or gets sick often, this can also be a factor for her. Having someone else who can step in and take care of things, either on a more permanent basis or temporarily, can be a tremendous weight off her mind. She’s also able to conserve that energy so she can heal and feel much better more quickly.
There Are Good Days and Bad Days.
Even without illness, your aging family member might have good days and bad days. That’s true for everyone, really, but it can be even more obvious for an aging adult. On the good days, she may be more likely to want to handle these tasks and chores on her own. For days that aren’t so great, help is indispensable.
Long-term Conservation of Energy Can Pay Off.
In the long run, having more than just a few “days off” from handling exhausting tasks can give your aging adult the energy that she needs to focus on her diet, her exercise program, and other healthier habits. Each of those improvements can help her to boost her personal energy reserves a little bit more, giving her a bigger payoff.
As your aging adult starts to realize the benefits of having more personal energy that she can expend in other ways, she’ll definitely appreciate the help of senior care providers.
