Boosting mental wellbeing of elderly individuals in care.







Older individuals, especially those living in care homes, often encounter issues such as depression, loneliness, and reduced levels of satisfaction and well-being.


To address these concerns, it is crucial to promote meaningful activities, foster personal identity, and provide necessary support for any health conditions or sensory impairments.


 

Maintaining Personal identity


Valuing a person's individuality and life experiences is crucial for their overall happiness and dignity. Each person deserves to feel appreciated and encouraged to express themselves freely. It's important to keep exploring their identity and aspirations. A few ways to do this can be;

  • Discover the significant aspects of their individual background, hobbies, and values and tailor the support and opportunities offered accordingly.

  • Ensure that they are given the opportunity to select their own clothing when possible and decide where they would like to be seated during meals, as well as allow them to have their cherished belongings close by.

  • Support them to facilitate decision-making.

  • Help them maintain relationships and encourage them to develop new ones.

Encourage meaningful activities


Providing individuals with a range of engaging activities, allowing them to choose what interests them, and enabling them to acquire new abilities and can enhance their overall well-being and contentment in life.

  • Engaging in a variety of activities that promote physical, social, and leisurely pursuits, as well as daily living tasks.

  • Participating in both planned and impromptu activities, either alone or with others, and incorporating loved ones.

  • Connecting with the community and exploring new interests or groups.

  • Encouraging emotional, artistic, mental, and spiritual growth.

  • Taking calculated risks, such as venturing outside or modifying indoor spaces, to accomplish personal objectives.

Find out what people think about the opportunities available to them by asking for their feedback. If they're having trouble expressing their thoughts, consider observing their behavior or reaching out to their loved ones and friends for their input.
