Home or nursing Home
There is a consensus about one component common
The transition to the frame is meant to improve the quality of life.
The word “nursing home” may evoke many people with negative thoughts about old age, deterioration, detachment and abuse. Once, the passage to a nursing home was carried out due to situations of lack of choice, when the elder could no longer remain in his home and take care of his needs or alternatively, when the economic capabilities enabled the “Lexus”.
Today the reality is different – the process of the existence of Israeli society has dictated the need for multi-purpose solutions that are suitable for functioning levels, budget options and different preferences.
The motives for leaving the house are varied in accordance with the functioning, health, mental, and financial conditions. But there is a consensus about one common element:
The transition to the frame is meant to improve the quality of life. The term “quality of life” consists of two parts: the person himself with his abilities, desires and limitations on the one hand, and the environment in which he lives (a home or outer frame) on the other.
The following are the various function planes:
Determining the degree of independence in the home and outside of the house (such as walking, bathing, leaving shopping)
The sense of security, motivation and social initiative (the degree of interaction with others) is the extent of participation in all kinds of cultural activities.
Diseases or health problems that determine the degree of treatment or medical supervision required.
The degree of clarity, awareness, alertness, and clarity of the adult
It can be said that the quality of life increases as one or more of the planes of these functions are improved, in accordance with each and every one’s personal priorities.
For the moment of the decision.
Not to decide is to decide no.
Once the options were not many, it was clear that “there is no place like home.” Today the dilemma is more difficult that the possibilities are more varied and consequently accompanied by a normal fear to choose the wrong solution. However, there is still a human tendency to reject the thoughts about changes or momentous decisions and let the status quo exist not from a free and deliberate choice. In this way, no decision has been taken, or alternatively, the decision is not to do anything with the situation.
In order to prevent situations in which reality is surprising and writing facts which are difficult to cope with, such as a health problem, there is no way to prepare.
The Israeli reality-a transition that is found to be desired
At the same time, several of the homes of the patriarchs increased significantly. If in the past, most of the nursing homes were in public or government, the latter was founded by private nursing homes that became most often. Here, too, this is a healthy competition that led to improvement in the level of institutions in terms of standard construction and luxury, the type of treatment given, the variety of activities and services, as well as the degree of control over them. In fact, there is a transition to the frame in order to achieve a better realization of the functional potential of the adult. For example, an adult who is in a wheelchair, which before living on a third floor without an elevator, rotates between the house of the elderly in an elevator without difficulty and goes to the yard as he pleased. Whoever found himself alone between the four walls of his house, now finds friends of his age, with whom he can share experiences and problems. A person who needs a trace or medical treatment is often examined and not every effort to leave the house to a health clinic (which sometimes makes him dependent on the accompanying of a family member or therapist). An adult in the process of Bedlam, who had not once risked his own time when he forgot to turn off the stove or when he got lost when he left his house, he didn’t have to worry about it anymore.
The question now arises who decides to change the way the adult lives?
The decision to transition to the frame is only an adult, provided its condition is enabled. The people around him will be able to help him search for the service and bring him all the relevant information so that he can make a wise decision, out of awareness and understanding the entire system. There are cases in which the older families have to decide in his place due to an unexpected situation or a sudden change in his functional state, but even then take into account his desires. The elder’s involvement in the decision would make it easier for him to adapt and acclimatize in his new surroundings. For example, if the elder has chosen to move and live in a nursing home, he will enter mentally prepared and with powers that will enable him to receive an easier reception in the area, assuming that the other conditions such as adjusting the place to his level of functioning, his mentality, and the economic situation, and so on, will be held.
Because decisions about changing the adult’s life are momentous and are often a crisis for him and his family, since they are in charge of emotional cargo and are accompanied by pressures, it is advisable to involve professionals who have knowledge in the field that can help neutralize them and give a professional and objective opinion that will lead to a solution The best.
