My path goes on the other side of the road which is less traveled, where thrill and excitement rests. This blog holds my inner thoughts, experiences, opinions and out-of-the-ordinary theories which I keep as a journal of my life's highlights.

    How to Care for Your Grandparents




    As the years go by and you start to get older, so too do your parents and grandparents. The same people who probably took care of you as a child probably need the same type of care now. Filipino culture is defined by love of family, and there's no better way to give back to the older generation by taking up more responsibility now that you're a young adult. If you're still not sure where to start, here's a short list of how you can show your grandparents you care.




    Help Them Out with Chores


    Only a small percentage of senior citizens in the Philippines are currently staying in geriatric care facilities. While BusinessMirror reports that many in the industry are hopeful that will change, in the meantime your grandparents might be staying with you or in their own homes. Take the time to assist them in whatever it is they need done at home, whether it's senior-proofing the household or cooking meals. This will lessen their household chores, and allow them to have more time for rest and relaxation like they need.




    Check up on their health






    According to AgeingAsia's report on the ageing population in the Philippines, the older a population, the more the need for health services. As your grandparents get older, their immune systems begin to weaken, lifestyle diseases begin to surface, and their bone density lessens. This unfortunately means that they'll have to take more maintenance medicines and go in for regular check-ups with their doctors. Doing so can be taxing for many senior citizens, and having a companion can often ease the burden. Accompanying your grandparents to their check-ups is a sure-fire way to show them just how much they and their health mean to you.

    Assist them with errands



    Getting around can be very difficult for your  grandparents, as with age can come reduced mobility. Something as simple as going to the store for extra groceries can end up being a production and take up too much time and energy. You can show your grandparents just how much you care by offering to pick up their medicines from the drug store, or going grocery shopping for them. Doing any errand for them, no matter how small, will have a large impact on their well-being and quality of life.





    Make Sure They're Protected







    As your grandparents get older, the chances of major illness, injury, and or hospitalization increase as well. Getting them an insurance plan like Paramount Direct's PrimeCare Cash Planwill help ease their financial burden in case of hospitalization. This insurance plan guarantees acceptance, so no need for lengthy medical exams or questionnaires. Its premiums also don't increase with age, unlike other programs, and with coverage that extends up to the age of 80 that's a definite plus. Let your grandparents be freed from financial worries by making sure they have insurance coverage that's affordable and tailored specifically for them.
