Firstat Nursing Services, a Rancho Bernardo Home Health Agency supports seniors by publishing smart tips for the holidays.
Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services says that in-home care can be a short-term arrangement that families create to ensure the well-being of their senior loved ones during the holidays, or a long-term situation where the home care professional helps keep loved ones happy and healthy all year long.
Here are three ways in-home care can help seniors with the holidays.
Getting Seniors Out and About During the Holidays – One of the biggest obstacles to holiday gatherings for seniors is simply the inability to travel by themselves. For some, just getting outside to a car is hard enough, often they aren’t able to drive or obtain transportation for themselves either.
An in-home caregiver can help senior citizens in most situations get out of the house daily to enjoy some fresh air, and more importantly, on days of nearby family activities, get them to those events so they can share special time with the rest of the family and be a part of the traditions and history they love. A home health care provider can also either arrange proper transportation or, in some cases, provide it themselves, so senior citizens can get to their events safely.
Meal Preparations and In-Home Communications Keep Seniors Connected to Distant Relatives – For senior citizens with distant family who can’t travel to be involved in the holiday events, a home care provider can keep them connected with phone or computer communications. They can also help the senior prepare a well-balanced feast for themselves, or find local senior gatherings where they can spend time with others they can share experiences with during the holidays, so they do not feel so isolated. In-home caregivers can arrange or provide that transportation to those events for seniors capable of getting out to them as well.
Beating the Holiday Blues with In-Home Care – Just having an in-home care provider helps senior citizens beat the most dangerous aspect of the holidays, the isolation blues. The feeling of being cut off from everything is what makes most senior citizens so vulnerable to holiday depression. An in-home caregiver is available for the senior citizen all during the weeks, even when there are no other events, when even local family members may be too busy to stop by and visit due to other holiday shopping, parties, and preparations.
In-home caregivers are there to talk to the seniors, play games with them or just spend quiet time with them so they are not alone. All the while, the in-home caregiver is keeping the home safe and comfortable for their seniors, and making them nutritious meals that help keep them healthy and happy.
