Why Is Aging So Scary?

Why Is Aging So Scary?

Most people are afraid of aging because they are anxious about their health and losing their independence. It is natural to be concerned about your physical decline as you get older, as your declining health may prevent you from doing things you used to do with ease and enjoying life.

Besides, chronic illness might limit or cause independence loss in aging adults, which most people see as an upsetting experience.

In addition, cognitive decline is often associated with aging. Although dementia is not a normal part of aging, many seniors experience cognitive impairments. According to the WHO, around 55 million aging people worldwide have dementia.

Aging adults can also experience depression, personality changes, mood swings, aggression, and other mental health concerns. Also, many older adults deal with emotional problems like grief and feelings of loneliness and isolation.

Devoted Guardians'
Response to COVID-19

Devoted Guardians is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus, COVID-19, to ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information on the threat of the virus. As you know, this situation continues to develop rapidly as new cases are identified in our communities and our protocols will be adjusted as needed.

While most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a very small percentage of cases become severe and may progress particularly in the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that Devoted Guardians serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
