Person centred care
Well it has now and truly been established, we currently have an aging population, so much so that they predict that within the next twenty years or so nearly half of the population of Great Britain will be over retirement age. There are a few factors why this is the case but the main reason is down to the fact that people are having children later on in their lives. For every couple that has children in their 30’s this is increasing the aging population as there will be a gap whereby over half of the population will be over 65. This also lends itself to the reason why the government is increasing the retirement age over the next few decades. They claim it is because the average age that people are living to has increased but the truth of the matter is that as more people will be of state pension age the government will struggle. That is why they feel that it is best to increase the age and the theory is (although they wont tell you this) is that they won’t have to pay people as much state pension. This article will look into this subject area in greater detail; the article will then conclude by informing you on where you can find more information on person centred care as well as Alzheimer’s disease.
Person centred care – for the aging population
As we start to live longer we also start to increase the amount of age related diseases that we could possibly get including Dementia. In order to try and increase some ones life and general wellbeing when they have this condition you need to ensure that you have factored in dementia design into their flat, home or care home. Everyone wants to be independent all the way through their lives because most of us are imprinted with pride. Due to this it is better to look into dementia design of the property and the furniture as this has a double effect of keeping your loved ones safe whilst still allowing them to have some of that all important freedom that they desire and deserve. You may also like to look into person centred care, this care is very target specific and as such allows for lots of care and attention to be made.
