Dignity and independence as you age

Dignity encompasses more than just appearances or external perceptions. It encompasses self-worth, respect, love, admiration, care, and confidence. Defining dignity can be challenging as it varies across cultures, societies, and individuals. As a result, each person will have their own perspective on dignity and aging. Every individual leaves a unique and unintentional legacy in various ways.

Defining dignity may vary from person to person. Some view it as a sense of independence and being respected, while others believe it involves feeling valued and being taken seriously by others.

IKOR specializes in providing comprehensive life care, management, and advocacy services for the elderly, people with disabilities, and children with special needs. Our main focus is to understand and honor our clients’ perspectives on dignity. By gaining insight into their aspirations and goals, we strive to support them in achieving a truly enriching and meaningful life.

Maintaining one’s independence is crucial for preserving dignity and personal identity. Unfortunately, as people age and their health declines, they often find it increasingly challenging to engage in activities they once enjoyed. This can lead to a diminishing sense of purpose and a higher susceptibility to the loss of dignity, particularly when faced with chronic illnesses or unmonitored medical emergencies.

With years of experience responding to emergencies where dignity was compromised, I have created a program that empowers seniors to proactively plan their future in the face of health challenges. This program is called the Solutions for Dignity Program.

At our organization, we prioritize understanding the individuals we work with in order to facilitate their personal growth. Our program is designed to support older adults who continue to live independently as they age, by exploring their care options. Additionally, we assist them in conveying their legacy, encompassing both financial and personal aspects, as well as the knowledge they wish to leave for future generations.
