Many elderly people do not get the care they need, leaving many being left to struggle and cope alone. There has been alot of social activity recently in the UK and Spain about Nursing Home care for the elderly and the lack of support they are getting. Live in care for the elderly is really coming into its own right now. It is proven to reduce the number of falls the elderly have and the use of antipsychotic drugs given to them. A good carer can make a huge difference in someone's life every day providing them with companionship, ensuring they have a balanced diet, providing personal care and taking them to appointments all done from the comfort of their own home. Age comes to us all and I'm sure if we could all choose the best option for ourselves we would also choose live in care.
