When you strip away the mod-cons of the world we now live in, humans are relatively simple creatures with simple needs. Though requirements for the elderly may change as their health and mind age, their basic needs are still simple.
Good Food – As we age our lifestyles and appetites change, which can affect the types and amounts of foods we eat. A decreasing appetite or reduced ability to buy and prepare healthy foods can mean that many older people don’t get enough essential vitamins, mineral and fibre, and this can contribute to general un-wellness or exacerbate some chronic illnesses. At Infinite Care, we recognise that diet and nutrition are important to everyone and as such our residents are provided with an extensive choice of well balanced and nutritional meals. We offer foods that are familiar and appetizing to residents, prepared with fresh ingredients on site and served with a bit of extra love and care.
Human Interaction – Research shows that seniors who stay busy with social interaction are amongst the happiest and healthiest in their age group. They live longer than those who become isolated and their relationships and social interactions even help protect against illnesses by boosting the immune system. As our senior population continues to grow, the negative health effects of isolation will become an even bigger problem. To combat this our Infinite Care staff are trained to ensure our residents feel well cared for, happy, settled and secure. In addition, our dedicated lifestyle teams have a jam-packed agenda for residents, brimming with special outings, interesting visitors and regular group activities to suit everyone’s taste. By helping seniors find outlets for socialization, it is possible to extend longevity and independence.
A Comfortable Home – Quality of life in residential aged care means creating a place the elderly can call home and for an aged population who are vulnerable and frail it is vital they live in a comfortable, safe and caring environment. A place where their daily needs are always met, where they have access to their community and where they simply feel like they matter. Infinite Care delivers peace of mind by creating an environment that is safe, clean, comfortable, and enjoyable. From our recent significant refurbishments within each facility to ensuring we keep residents up with modern times by giving access to state of the art technology – comfort is always key.
