Senior Aging Myths

December 7th, 2018 The Loved Ones Desk Uncategorized

There are a lot of myths people believe throughout their lifetimes — swallowing watermelon seeds makes a watermelon to grow in your stomach, naps are only for children, and you can’t drive with the car lights on.

But some of the worst myths we’ve ever heard are about seniors and aging. Well, we want to set a few things straight on that topic.

Seniors are Always Depressed

Nope! In fact, seniors tend to be some of the happiest people around. With more time to engage in hobbies and social activities, seniors get plenty of enjoyment and happiness out of life as they age. When compared to other age groups, seniors smile more.

All Seniors are Senile

While it’s true that aging can affect memory and physical ability, not every senior is senile. In fact, many seniors are mentally and physically capable for the entirety of their lives. In fact, since a majority of seniors take their health more seriously as they age, they could be in even better shape as they get older.

Getting Old Means Getting Lonely.

Oh, quite the contrary. Since seniors have more free time in retirement and beyond, they tend to do more in their old age than they did when they were younger. We’ve even heard stories of seniors who have to find time to schedule things with friends because their agendas are already so full.

When it comes to keeping your senior relatives happy and healthy, you can trust the professional caregivers at Loved Ones. With our “never alone” promise, you can rest assured that your loved ones will receive the best care possible.
