As we age it is inevitable that the things we once found easy can become a little more challenging. For many the mind stays youthful into our older years, unfortunately, the body does not.
Many older people feel frustration – the body and the mind are no longer equal partners. Managing as best we can, perhaps with some help from friends or family, can lead to stress for all involved.
Seeking additional support can seem like a big step. Often the person in need of support is worried about the implications of having a professional carer. Family and friends, on the other hand, may feel they have not done enough to support the person themselves.
To have these kinds of worries is perfectly normal on the journey to receiving professional care at home.
