Elderly Health Issues

Elderly Health Issues
According to the National Council on Aging, about 92 percent of seniors have at least one chronic disease and 77 percent have at least two. Heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes are among the most common and costly chronic health conditions causing two-thirds of deaths each year.

Elderly Health Issues

Cognitive health is focused on a person’s ability to think, learn and remember. The most common cognitive health issue facing the elderly is dementia, the loss of those cognitive functions. Approximately 47.5 million people worldwide have dementia—a number that is predicted to nearly triple in size by 2050. (Source: vitalrecord.tamhsc.edu)

Testimonials

Thank you for caring of my mom. We could not have cared for my mother in our home for the last few years without the help of an agency like yours. I appreciated the caregivers; especially the one who was here regularly over the last several months. She was very caring toward mom, even though mom often resisted having someone help her.

In the space of just one week, my client has mentioned a couple of times how helpful the caregivers have been. He’s thanked me for connecting him to Care Placement. I had an opportunity to meet the caregiver last week when she accompanied them. I watched how she worked with the client and thought she was very thorough in her care. The client liked her and the caregiver had a calming way about her. I also had the chance to sit and talk to her for a few minutes alone to hear her observations. That was very helpful to me. I’ll be keeping you in mind for future clients.

I am a very satisfied customer. The two caregivers you have sent over so far are 5 stars. I have confidence you will continue with the same quality. They have a great calming effect on my wife.

Many thanks for all your work covering caregiver shifts for my aunt. We know it takes caring people in the office and the home to meet her needs. We appreciate all you have done.
