This is a sponsored post on behalf of Amerigroup about the importance of getting wellness, social, and support services for older adults.
Back in 2009, when I struggled with my health, my limitations were frustrating. I was thankful to have physical and mental help from friends and family. At just 31 years old, I got a feel for what it might be like for older individuals with health limitations. During that time, I needed help getting and preparing meals, with transportation, and accessing other health and wellness services.
Even though I wasn’t feeling well, I still wanted to be social and spend time with family and friends. Doing things I loved help keep my mind off of the pain and limitations.
Important Wellness, Social, and Support Services for Older Adults
Thankfully, that time in my life was temporary and relatively short-lived. Now I think about how important it is that older adults have access to wellness, social, and support services. No matter what stage in life, quality of life is so important.
Now that my parents and in-laws are grandparents, it’s so fun to watch the different generations having fun together. In my previous post about Medicare options, I talked about how thankful I am that we can all still go on adventures together.
Even with family and friends nearby, there are still services that can help older adults with both health and wellness.
Amerigroup Medicare Advantage Wellness Services
Here in Texas, Amerigroup has Medicare Advantage plans that help older people live happy, healthy, and safe lives with high-quality, affordable healthcare services.
As I realized back in 2009, there is more to health and wellness than just making sure you get necessary medications and transportation to doctor’s appointments.
Some of Amerigroup’s Medicare Advantage plans are expanding to offer even more wellness service options. Now there are benefit options such as nutrition support, healthy food delivery, transportation services, service dog support, personal home helpers, adult daycare center visits, and even pest control. With these services, older adults can have a better quality of life and get the support that they need.
Quality of Life for Older Adults
It’s great to see that Amerigroup is lowering barriers and allowing easier access to everyday health needs. These wellness services focus on whole-person health. Now older adults can get help to manage chronic conditions, engage more with their community, or avoid preventable health-related incidents.
As a caregiver or loved one, think about the older adults in your lives. How wonderful would it be for them to continue to do things that they love and live happy and healthy lives? As an older adult, think about the things you love to do and the plans that you can have in place so that you can continue to do all of those things.
