Aging with dignity
How would you like to age? At home, surrounded by your beloved family? Many people think so, and choose to live at home as they age - even after an accident, a stroke or simply the signs of age have put an end to being self-reliant.
In the context of aging societies, an increasing number of families find themselves being exhausted from home-caring a senior. As informal caregivers, barely trained, they are lifting the heavy weight of providing medical services, and at times putting their own health at risk as they do not know how to protect themselves from injuries. They are not always sure that they are doing it right either. This uncertainty might seem minor at first, but can cause psychological damage like anxiety in the long run.
