Lately, I see and hear about a lot of elderly people struggling with health challenges that come with old age. Many children hide their aged mom or dad at home and yet can not care adequately for them. A lot are frustrated with the large turnover of maids they have to hire for their elderly. I am basically through this post trying to provide information about where anyone in need of care services for their elderly can get help in Nigeria. This list was inspired by a story I had written earlier: An Old Woman Imprisoned by her children guarded by an uncontrollable maid.
How can we help the aged age gracefully? It is by being informed about how to care for them. Below is a list of contacts that might help. I will continue to update the list from time to time as I get more information.
Note: I am not by this post endorsing any of these elderly care service providers. Please make proper inquiry before engaging their services.
