Due to the pandemic, there’s a significant decline in the health status of many seniors due to the inability to socialize with others face to face. Along with this, there’s anxiety associated with the uncertainty caused by the Coronavirus. Over the past year, things slowed down considerably, and many seniors went without the necessary services they needed. The virus has also hit the elderly the worst as they are more prone to catching it and succumbing to it. As a result, they had to deal with isolation and loneliness.

At LifeSmartConcepts, LLC, we believe that the pandemic continues to be challenging for seniors. Therefore there is a growing need for senior care and assistance. However, with the availability of a vaccine against COVID, we believe they will see improvements in their life and the lives of their family members. In fact, here’s what we can expect to see in the coming months.

1. New regulations regarding health and safety
Guidelines will be established governing the health and safety of our clients. Our business will need to stay alert and implement these changes to be in compliance.

2. Traveling
People realize that now is the time to implement their goals and dreams. As a result, many are beginning to travel and explore the world in new ways. There is a sense of urgency to get out and do more, given that life is unpredictable. This has increased business for us and the opportunity to accompany clients on travel.

3. Higher usage of technology
There will be a continued increase in the use of technology due to the various platforms offering services like calling and video chat that lets people stay connected to friends, family, and work.

Incorporating technology in today’s life is the new normal, and it is imperative that we, as a business, stay ahead of the game and accommodate clients via technology when necessary.

4. On-demand caregivers
There is a heightened awareness of the need for caregivers and for clients to be informed of their rights and responsibilities that come with aging. Home care businesses need to be available and knowledgeable to provide specific services to seniors, or at least be able to redirect clients to the proper resources.

5. Increased staffing
We are in the process of hiring the right staff in response to the demand for additional senior care services. In this way, clients can be assured of consistency in the quality of services that we provide.

In this new year, we hope to see “a light at the end of the tunnel” when it comes to the ongoing pandemic.
