Elder Care in Dix Hills NY
National Liver Awareness Month takes place throughout the month of October. It was created as a way to educate the public on ways to keep the liver healthy and functioning properly for many years to come. The American Liver Foundation wants people of all ages to take control of their health and take the right steps to prevent disease from developing into these organs.
Whether or not your elderly parent is at risk for liver diseases, they should understand how to take better care of this part of the body. Some of the following tips may be too difficult for older adults to complete on their own. An elder care provider could help your loved one learn how to keep their liver healthy, while also assisting with other tasks that have becoming too challenging for them to do, including driving or cooking.
To help get your loved one in the spirit to celebrate National Liver Awareness Month, here are some ideas to get you started.
- Become educated. The more you and your aging loved one knows, the better the ability to prevent problems with the liver. Hospitals and other healthcare providers should have the information you need, as well as possibly holding seminars on the topic. If driving is an issue for your loved one, an elderly care provider can transport them to and from these events.
- Watch videos. With the billions of videos available on YouTube, there are a large amount of videos on caring for the liver. The best part about watching a video is the fact that it can be paused and resumed whenever the elder is ready to continue watching it.
- Attend an informational meeting. If there is a social gathering in the senior’s neighborhood that will educate them on liver health, encourage your loved one to attend. Not only will they be able to become more educated, but they will also have the opportunity to meet and mingle with new people.
- Read healthcare literature. If the elder goes to their doctor’s office, they are bound to find a brochure on just about any healthcare topic, including liver health. Have the elder pick up all of the information they need, while also asking their doctor any questions they still have.
Even if your loved one is not at a high risk for developing a liver disease, it is extremely beneficial to learn as much as possible on the condition. By becoming educated, the elder will be able to take the right steps towards a healthier and longer life.
