Most older people deny that they need qualified care. Although they have neglected most of the daily care of personal hygiene, healthy eating, garden work that has just been enjoyed, walking in a nearby park where they met with friends, failing to deal with mobility, and a whole host of other things, related to personal and social life, these older people find some justifiable response to failing to deal with the problems they are facing in their already altered way of life - closed, with few social contacts and responsibilities even to themselves.

There are cases where elderly people unable to cope with elemental problems are constantly looking for family members without taking into account their abilities and respecting their right to privacy. Committed in this way, the relatives of such elderly people find themselves trapped - stretched betwe It is very important to find in time the symptoms of a less independent and efficient way of life for the elderly, so that it can be offered a change in lifestyle. The alternative personal assistant is somewhat good. This is help at the old man's home. But this, on the other hand, is a limitation in social contacts - contact only with the personal assistant and the relatives who visit him. Even if you provide a food at home at home, it will be a relief for the home assistant, but not for more adult contacts.

And work, obligations to their own families and the elderly.

Each country offers independent living in communities suited to the elderly, as well as many programs that an elderly person can use under certain financial conditions.

It is important at the right time and with appropriate relatives to convince your beloved adult that it is time to change their living conditions, which is a good choice for its longer survival. He must understand that in a new community he will be more fulfilling as a person, he will receive the necessary care for him and will not be lonely.

The social worker is not a medical person and is not available 24 hours a day. For this reason, this should be a temporary solution to the problem of helping older people.

 When considering choosing a suitable place to accommodate your beloved old man, make a better initial plan of action: what type of home you want to find - according to the health of the adult; how far away from your place of residence; the conditions that the new home should meet - such as service staff, food, medical care, and others; its location in the settlement and last but not least the price you have to pay.
