Many people think that the success of an old age home depends on the facilities and comforts it extends to the people who live there. Yes, they are important indeed, but there is something else that makes a place comfy, cozy and ideal to live. Love, affection, and care are the important aspects that differentiate a good place from the average or bad ones. A team that looks after the elderly people well, talks to them, hears their troubles and extends the best possible support is the basic building block of an excellent old age home.
Experts believe that following aspects make an old age home the best place to live:
• Where support staff is so affectionate and lovable that senior citizens don’t hesitate in sharing their feelings, joys, and sorrows. Even if the problems remain unsolved, there is a bond of fondness.
• Where the team helps elder members in retaining mental and emotional control up to the maximum possible extent.
• Where people understand that old age makes a person irrational, impractical and unpredictable. Hence, each one is treated with respect and patience.
The best old age home is that where people don’t feel like they aren’t staying with their families.
