Senior Living and Health care

The idea of independent living as a principle is believed that seniors are the best to assess their needs than another person. This is in a way empowering their disability. To put their lives in order, these people should establish a power within themselves to promote answers for their self-respect and opinion. Self-representation, de-institutionalization and de-medicalization are some ways for empowerment.

The empowerment that comes with being independent helps to accomplish a sense of self-determination. If they are allowed to take part in social activities without obstruction from institutional restraint and customs, they could be normal where they can achieve freedom and control their life. Generally, assistive mobility equipment is extremely helpful in strengthening movements and power to act. This equipment also provides the individual to choose how to support their aspiration for independence better than institutional control.
