The country’s aging population has brought upon various implications. One of these, gun ownership, remains to be a pressing issue that the loved ones of seniors have been facing.
How should care providers, families, and relatives deal with this? Public safety and geriatric experts reiterate the careful strategies in tackling such issues. Instead of sneaking guns and disabling them, according to professionals, there has to be a proper way of discussing the concern with the elderly instead of covertly dealing with the issue by themselves.
In this way, the elderly’s rights and welfare can still be taken into consideration. Note that care givers have a vital role in maintaining the elderly’s well being. Just as home care services are helpful in this area, dealing with such concerns entails proper techniques – considering that dementia, Alzheimer’s and other conditions may interfere with elders’ day to day living.
