Best Review - Top 3 Ways To Have A Good Quality Of Life In Your Later Years

I

n the UK we are an ageing population. Statistics show that by 2039 the UK population will have reached 74 million by 2039. Currently 18% of people are aged over 65 but it is thought that 25% of the entire UK population will be aged 65 and over within the next 20 years.
Part of the reason for us all growing older is an improvement in healthcare over the last decade. However, with this comes an increase in demand on the NHS and on care services like care homes. For this reason, it is important that we all take responsibility over our healthcare and quality of life in our later years. Nobody wants to think about a time when they might be less independent or less physically able, but there are so many things you can to do ensure you are as healthy as possible, and as prepared as possible. Here are our top tips on how to have a good quality of life in your later years:

Nutrition

Malnutrition is a huge problem for the elderly population because nutrition needs change as you get older. If the right adjustments aren't made, you can find yourself deficient in lots of essential vitamins and minerals, and facing a decline in health if it isn't resolved. Seek advice from your GP or healthcare providers on how to adapt your diet to your age and activity levels so your body has everything it needs to help you thrive in later life.

Movement

It is a common myth that you have to slow down and move less as you get older, but that simply isn't the case. You should stay active and mobile for as long as you possibly can. The more you build muscle and flexibility, the more able you will be to avoid bone or muscle damage if you do fall, and you could even avoid falls in the first place because of better balance and strength. Moving also helps keep heart health in good shape, and helps avoid weight gain.

Care At Home

Regardless of how well you eat and exercise, illnesses and accidents can happen which can mean you require a little help. Care homes are always an option, but a high percentage of people (nearly 100%!) would rather not move into a care home if they became unwell and unable to care for themselves. The main alternative is receiving care at home where a professional carer will either visit, or live with you to provide assisted living help and deliver the amount of care and services you need. They can provide personal care, help with medication, running errands and more. This could enable you to have a high improvement in quality of life, getting assistance with mobility and nutrition, helping you to maintain and even build independence. Carers are there to support you living the best possible life at home.
