It’s never easy to admit when it’s time to move your loved one into a private frail care facility. When making the decision to choose frail care, it’s important to remember that your elderly loved one deserves physical and mental well-being. A private frail care facility can help your loved one achieve just that and give you, the primary caregiver, peace of mind and respite.

One of the major advantages of private frail care is that it offers daily support. As your loved one grows older, they’ll likely need increasing assistance with their activities of daily living. These may include things like dressing, bathing, medication administration, and so on. The staff of private frail care facilities are well-prepared to offer support for those daily needs.

Those caregivers will know exactly how to provide the care that each resident needs in a way that simultaneously protects the residents’ privacy and dignity. Frail care services will be provided to your loved one whenever they’re needed and care plans are regularly re-evaluated as residents age. This way, your loved ones will have the support they need to thrive and enjoy their well-earned retirement.

Private frail cares also mean added support and security. The health and safety of residents are commonly one of the top priorities at private frail care facilities. These facilities, such as Livewell, aim to minimize the risk of injury, keep residents safe, and respond quickly to medical emergencies. A few examples of how seniors are kept safe and secure in these frail care facilities include carefully designed spaces to minimise falls and injuries as well as 24/7 security.

A huge benefit of being placed in private frail care at Livewell is the memory-care support. It’s estimated that roughly 10% of people age 65 and older have Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. That is approximately one in every ten seniors. And as your loved one grows older, they may greatly benefit from additional memory care (dementia and Alzheimer’s care). Very few assisted living facilities offer memory care. In addition to our private frail care, Livewell is a specialised dementia and Alzheimer’s care facility in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
