It is necessary to analyse this special area to be discussed because suchaged individuals requires proper care and support in order to remain well-being and spendcomfortable lives. As per view of Kaye Ervin, Irene Blackberry and Helen Haines (2017), it hasbeen analysed that the concept of shared decision making (SDM) is helpful to provide moreappropriate services. However, it involves to share own views with specific old aged patient andgain their opinions in order to conduct favourable supportive practices by maintaining comfortzone of an individual. In addition to this, it is necessary to determine possible occurrence ofbarriers which create problem for implementing theoretical framework of shared decisionmaking consist lack of education among staff members and family members of patient in respectof implementing the technique of SDM.According to the opinion given by Karl Krajic, Martin Cichocki and ViktoriaQuehenberger (2014), the residential aged care program is very effective which is required to bepromoted for managing their lives to maintain their comfort level. However, it is necessary toenhance the care residential homes in order to provide desired services to senior citizens who are
not able to spend their lives independently. In addition to this, it include that owners,management, staff members and family members of patient should put efforts to cooperate witheach to establish improved clinical practices to gain better patient outcomes. Moreover, itincludes to focus on strategy development, based on systematic assessment of actualrequirements and use advanced equipments for making lives of aged people more easy andcomfortable.Reason behind selecting aged carePeople who are old or aged will not be able to walk properly and with one or the otherthing they need care and support from other people or their own family. After a certain age anyindividual starts loosing in dependency and may not be able to work and take for self. As perviews provided byBrownie, Horstmanshof and Garbutt (2014),old age is sensitive phage, in thisphage people need comfort to lead healthy life and care without any anxiety and worries. Asthese are neglected by young people, this project will provide information about problems whichis aged people are facing so they can take care the old people as they need care and support. Lackof awareness about changing behavioural pattern in aged people at home results to abuse themby their kin. Hence age progresses various health issues happen such as heart failure, diabetes,blood pressure, joint pain, TB and kidney infection.Aged people also desire life with dignity, economic importance, good health and finallypeaceful death. Understanding needs of aged people and keep them jovial that is inevitably idealway for a healthy life. As old age is a fragile, so aged people can not take care for themselvesand they need care from the others which can keep them healthy. At the old age people needmore attention and care which can support them emotionally and physically. According toopinion given byLim and et. al., (2014),many of aged people can not express themselvesbecause they are too scared for being humiliated by whom they love. They always long for love,care and affection at this age. Lending an emotional and physical support can make them feelbetter. Most of people ignore their aged parents because of their work which can be a heartbreakfor aged people. Some of them are forced to sell their belongings and left to live in penury tilltheir death. Aged care is majorly neglected by young people so this project will be able to createa concern for aged people so they can get care and support.
