HOW THE LIVES OF THE ELDERLY HAVE CHANGED AFTER THE PANDEMIC

How has the lives of the elderly changed after the pandemic?
From a general point of view, the consequences of the pandemic have led to a radical change in our routines, our habits and our way of relating. A year after the beginning of this complicated health situation around the world, we finally assimilate that our lives are no longer as they had been until the beginning of 2020.

It has also been shown that the elderly have been the most affected of this pandemic.

Any major change in the life of an older adult is the beginning of a slow process of adaptation. However, in this pandemic there has been no time for it. This transition has been carried out so abruptly that its consequences have manifested themselves at various levels.

Here, nursing home administrator Eli Mirlis will share more about the aspects on which this pandemic has affected the life of the elderly.

Social aspects
The situation of special vulnerability of the elderly has increased some discriminatory behaviors. The most tragic events of the pandemic, such as the high percentages of deaths in nursing homes, have favored a certain part of the public opinion. Consequently, Eli Mirlis shares that the elderly have been labeled as the weakest population group.

Psychological aspects
The oversaturation of information and the exhaustion derived from chaining so many months of change and instability has meant a breakdown in the psychological balance of the elderly.

“Mobility and meeting restrictions, cancellation of group activities, closure of day centers, etc, are too many changes in a very limited time,” says Eli Mirlis.

These situations cause stress in the elderly population. The psychological impact of the pandemic on older people is, to a large extent, the consequence of an excess of information that has not been able to compensate with an adequate dose of reality. It is true that there is a risk of contagion, outbreaks and new strains, but, according to Eli Mirlis, there are also more and more tools to face the situation, prevent it and treat it.

Emotional aspects
The consequences of the pandemic on an emotional level are probably those that have had the greatest impact on the lives of older people. Confinement, a new and unexpected situation for everyone, has been a difficult scenario for the elderly to cope with. In Eli Mirlis’ opinion, if many of them already lived alone before the obligation to stay at home, the imposed mobility restrictions have been the trigger for an even more complicated situation than loneliness: isolation.

Eli Mirlis, CEO at RegalCare Management Group indicates that there are older people who more than assistance to carry out their daily routines, need something much simpler, such as accompaniment. With the breakdown of social ties imposed by the pandemic, the situation of loneliness that was already a common aspect in the lives of many older adults has worsened. This reality has served to highlight the important work performed by caregivers and the need to reinforce solidarity, sensitivity and empathy towards older people who live alone.

Benefits of Living in a Nursing Home

Nowadays it is common to use nursing homes as an option whenit comes to caring for our elders. In the last ten years, the number of elderlypeople living in residences has almost tripled, from some 96,000 people in 2001 to more than 270,000 in 2011, according to data from the National Institute of Statistics.

However, it seems that the use of nursing homes for the careof the elderly is something that is stigmatized. It is still difficult to makepeople understand that not having time to take care of them is normal, and that sending them to a nursing home or a day center is not getting rid of them or disengaging ourselves, but rather providing much better care than we could give them at home.

Once the decision to do so has been made, we will have tolook for a place that gives us confidence. RegalCare Management Group offers afull continuum of care, from temporary respite stays, to short-term rehabilitation, to long-term skilled nursing care, as well as a broad array of specialty programs and services. As the CEO of RegalCare Management Group, Eli Mirlis makes sure that they only hire professionals who provide the best healthcare, within a close, familiar and personalized environment in order to guarantee the well-being and quality of life of the elderly.

It is a very important stage in the lives of our elders, inwhich they will require the best care, affection and attention. That is why theobjective of this search should focus on finding the place where they can feel best cared for and loved outside of their environment, a place where they can continue to enjoy life with the greatest tranquility and security that we can give them, explains Eli Mirlis.

Among the greatest advantages of living in a nursing home, Nursing Home Administrator Eli Mirlis highlights:

Freedom of movement: Most of the residences today areadapted to people with different types of dependencies or pathologies and evenwith movement difficulties, thanks to elevators or ramps. In this way, residents do not have to limit themselves when it comes to moving around, being able to go out to get some fresh air in the gardens or move around the facilities normally and go through the doors with their wheelchairs ifnecessary. This facility does not happen in common floors due to lack of spaceand adaptation.

Menus adapted to each resident: Food is another thing totake into account, in the residences you will find menus prepared daily andadapted to their nutritional needs. At home, especially if they live alone, they are not usually so careful when cooking for them, or disciplined with meal times. This also happens when they live with their children, since the complicated daily life of each one means that they do not usually eat at the same time.

Medical care: For a single person or simply a family, itwould be almost unthinkable to be able to afford medical care 24 hours a day,every day of the week. However, in this type of nursing home, since there are many elderly people who live in them, the expense is shared in addition to being periodically supervised.

Accompaniment: The company is also something that our eldersare very grateful for. Social connections are vital for personal well-being, inthese centers they meet people their age, with whom they can share hobbies and conversation. This is another important advantage of living in a residence compared to living alone in your homes. As if we left them without company in our home while we go to work.

Greater activity: We must bear in mind that the elderly willbe more active in these places than in their homes or in ours. In manyresidences they have recreational activities with people who organize them. Mental stimulation is essential. Some programs include exercises, social gatherings and scheduled excursions to different charming places. In some centers, the facilities are equipped with swimming pools and gyms so that theydo not lose capacities due to inactivity.

Ultimately, Eli Mirlis concludes, nursing home should be considered a good option in any case of need and especially if the person lives alone andtheir relatives do not have the time necessary to take care of them and accompany them.

Elderly Nutrition

Food preparation for the elderly is one of the most demanded tasks for senior care.

In addition, a diet for the elderly must be healthy and balanced. It must suit the individual nutritional needs of each elderly person. Therefore, it is convenient the food to be designed and supervised by professionals.

Here, nursing home administrator Eli Mirlis, CEO of RegalCare Management Group, will share here more about elderly nutrition.

The importance of the diet for the elderly
The elderly need to eat well, several times daily. So, Eli Mirlis claims that the preparation and follow-up of a suitable diet for the elderly is a vital necessity for them.

Diet design for the elderly attending to the needs of the elderly

The diet of the elderly is essential for their well-being, the care of their health and their quality of life. An elderly diet should avoid nutritional deficits, prevent diseases or avoid their aggravation.

In addition, elderly food must be tasty and palatable and easy to eat and digest.

The design of a diet for the elderly should be carried out by a qualified professional. Eli Mirlis shares that the circumstances, age and condition of the senior should be taken into account. Other considerations necessary for the design of the appropriate diet include:

Their current health status. Eli Mirlis points out that it should be taken into account if they suffer from any disease that can be aggravated with the consumption of certain foods, or if they have physical problems that require a specific diet. The Nutritional needs should based on their height, weight, and lifestyle.

Their age.

Medications they take. Certain medications, are incompatible with certain foods or food groups.

Eli Mirlis indicates in his articles that it is important to entrust these tasks to elderly diet professionals. They can design diets appropriate to their needs. Also, avoiding to make changes that can be harmful the health of the elderly is of a huge importance.
