Health and Well-Being for Elders and Persons with Disabilities

Adapting to changing abilities, health needs and financial constraints can be difficult to manage for families with dependent or older adults. People are living longer than they planned and retirement savings aren’t lasting as long. Mental health and physical health challenges can arise. Family members are often unaware of the situation facing their older loved ones, and many times they are unable to provide assistance. These kinds of issues will only grow as the Baby Boomers age and our population gets “grayer.” Older adults need a safety net, one that is made up of family, friends, neighbors and the resources they have in Fresno County. Fresno’s Department of Social Services has many programs that cater to the needs of older adults as well as dependent adults of all ages. Now is the time to start a conversation. Being proactive and having a family conversations about the needs of older or dependent adults now can prevent crises. This publication will encourage readers to take control and start a conversation now to help the loved one in their life. With Fresno County’s adult services, they will have a place to turn when they need help.

Salud y bienestar para ancianos y personas con discapidades

Adaptarse a las capacidades cambiantes, las necesidades de salud y las restricciones financieras puede ser difícil de manejar para las familias con dependientes o adultos mayores. Las personas viven más tiempo de lo previsto y los ahorros para la jubilación no duran tanto. Pueden surgir problemas de salud mental y salud física. Los miembros de la familia son a menudo inconscientes de la situación que enfrentan sus seres queridos más viejos, y muchas veces no pueden proporcionar ayuda. Este tipo de problemas sólo crecerá a medida que los Baby Boomers envejecen y nuestra población se pone "más gris". Los adultos mayores necesitan una red de seguridad, que está formada por familiares, amigos, vecinos y los recursos que tienen en el Condado de Fresno. Departamento de Servicios Sociales de Fresno tiene muchos programas que atienden a las necesidades de los adultos mayores, así como los adultos dependientes de todas las edades. Sin embargo, el departamento combate los conceptos erróneos que impiden que la gente busque ayuda. "¿Estás aquí para llevarme ahora?" Es un saludo común cuando los Servicios de Protección para Adultos visitan la casa de un adulto mayor. Esto es simplemente falso - todos los clientes conservan su derecho a la libre determinación. El objetivo del Departamento de Servicios Sociales es ayudar a los adultos mayores a la edad en sus hogares durante el tiempo que sea posible hacerlo con seguridad. Ahora es el momento de iniciar una conversación. Ser proactivo y tener una conversación familiar sobre las necesidades de los adultos mayores o dependientes ahora puede prevenir las crisis. Esta publicación animará a los lectores a tomar el control ya iniciar una conversación ahora para ayudar al ser querido en su vida. Con los servicios para adultos del Condado de Fresno, tendrán un lugar donde acudir cuando necesiten ayuda.
