Four Daily Tasks That Get Harder With Age and How to Solve Them

As you get older your body changes and this can mean that tasks you once found easy become a little harder over time. In this case, the best thing you can do is ask for help from family, friends and carers so you can find the best solutions for your daily needs at home.

Here are four tasks that elderly residents may find difficult and how to solve them.

Going up and down the stairs

If you’re not as steady on your feet as you used to be or then using the stairs can be dangerous. But, instead of putting yourself at risk, a great solution is to install a stairlift. Not only are they easy to use but stairlifts can make a huge positive impact on your day to day life.

Using the bathroom

Washing, brushing your teeth and using the bathroom are three things that need to be done on a daily basis but it can be made all the more difficult when you don’t have a suitable bathroom. Why not install a wet room or accessible fixtures? That way you can remain independent when using the bathroom.

Cooking and cleaning

Preparing food and cleaning your home can become a little tougher as you get older and tire more easily. If you’re struggling with these tasks there are plenty of helpful services available such as meal delivery services and at home help where a carer can help out with cleaning and cooking.

Standing up from the sofa

Regular sofas can become more challenging and uncomfortable when your mobility decreases. A great replacement is a recliner sofa or armchair that will slowly put you in an upright position so you can safely get up and down as you please.
