Seniors who are healthy and do not suffer from any sickness and who are physically fit require less care as compared to those who are under the supervision of medical treatment. For those who are taking medical treatment, timely medicines, proper diet and wellness is required. The level of care and attention is more for those who require medical attention and guidance. Periodical medical check-ups, proper rest and interaction of family members to keep the senior quite happy and content are some of the essentials of care that are required by the dear ones.
