General Care Services
What are Care Services?
Care services are services that usually encompass long term care services such as nursing homes for the old where there is 24 hours care or for rehabilitation purposes. In recent years the interest for westerners in buying a home abroad has increased rapidly.
In popular tourist countries we are now seeing more and more communities being built catering solely to foreigners looking for a comfortable home in a place with warm weather and relaxed surrounding. In recent years the interest for westerners in buying a home abroad has increased rapidly. However, as the local people get older they also face increasing health care problems. To solve this problem, many countries with overseas resident communities, such as Thailand and Spain, are now developing special residential homes with extra care service for their inhabitants.
Some of the most popular care services abroad:
Nursing and caretaking 24/7
Regular medical check-ups
Wellness programs for elderly
Is Geriatric Nursing Home a Choice for you?
In many traditional Asian societies, there is still hesitancy to putting the elderly in geriatric nursing homes while there is more acceptance of this idea in the Western world. Mostly, it is an Asian cultural perspective that when one is raised by their elders, it is an obligation to repay the elderly by caring for them. Many a times, a traditional Asian elderly may feel neglected or betrayed leading to emotional trauma at the prospect of being put in a nursing home. It is the strong concept of “familism”, fear of a new unknown environment where they lack control of, and also the sensitive issue of feeling like being thrown out of their homes.
Yet, there are factors that may also show that Geriatric Nursing home may be a better choice in terms of logical explanations and health issues. If an elderly is in need of special care, that may be a good reason for them to choose staying in a nursing home where they will have special attention and care for professional nurses and car providers that know what they are doing.
Also, in a nursing home, there are other elderly that can associate with each other in an environment of community that may help the elderly feel less lonely. If a household houses the elderly but does not have the time to give them the emotional support they need, sometimes it is better for the elderly to be in an environment where they can have this attention.
Many factors including the community, environment, location of the nursing homes should be carefully considered for an elderly as this will be a permanent lodging for them and peace of mind should be most important, followed by the right types of care they will receive. Although, if the elderly is more comfortable with their environment at home as it is and is more emotional secure, it may also be a good option, if available and a possible solution, to employ live-in nurses to tend to the elderly at home.
