Caring for the elderly is becoming increasingly relevant due to the increase in the older population.
Care homes are full, hospitals are under extra pressure to perform and so we need to look at ways in which caring for the elderly is for the benefit of that person.
Elderly massage is a unique way in which a member of staff or loved one can create and develop strong bonding and improve their relationship with an older person, essentially through the power of touch.
We know that caring for an elderly person can be stressful not only for the family member, but also for that older person. They may have been forced to re-locate from their home to a care home, as they are no longer able to care for themselves or have been diagnosed with dementia and need to be re-located for their own safety.
It is an incredibly emotional situation and so knowing that they are getting great care and an elderly massage can be of great comfort for all parties involved.
A regular elderly massage will help to alleviate feelings of being dis-connected, with a safe and nurturing touch helping to release feel good chemicals in the brain.
We also know that caring for the elderly with an elderly massage will help to de-stress and calm the recipient, which is ideal for anyone experiencing dementia.
An elderly massage is ideal for many since it is a natural treatment – which when we have spoken to our customers, they love. Many older people have to take a variety of pills, and the consensus is that they prefer not to and that they don’t like to take so many tablets.
This is one of the reasons why elderly massage is popular and one that is recognised by progressive nursing homes and the like.
We have worked with a variety of clients who have appreciated the difference that learning elderly massage has made to the quality of care they provide for their clients.
We are passionate about providing care for the elderly and want to share our knowledge with homes, groups and the like so that everyone can benefit from receiving a calming elderly massage.
It does make us feel good, but most importantly it makes an incredibly positive difference to the quality of life for someone who is older.
