Firstat Nursing Services, a home health care and home nursing agency serving Poway, Rancho Bernardo and San Diego supports healthy aging tips by publishing, “3 Ways to Make This Year the Best for the Senior Citizens in the Family.”
Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services says, “For the elderly, enjoying a better life often involves getting more assistance to do things that have become overwhelming on a daily basis.”
Here are three ways to make this year the best for the senior citizens in the family.
Promote Aging at Home – Instead of looking for easy options of moving senior loved ones to living facilities or bringing them into another family member’s home, look for the best options to keep elderly family members in their own homes. Living in a strange place, or moving in with family members creates a loss of independence that can be crippling and depressing for senior citizens. Instead, consider hiring a qualified home health care professional to provide regular assistance, allowing older family members to stay in the homes they love and cherish, while maintaining their sense of self-esteem and independence.
Caregivers offer valuable assistance by helping the elderly complete activities that may be dangerous such as bathing and cooking meals. They are skilled nursing providers who will also help manage the senior citizen’s medical needs and communicate with physicians to ensure good health. When a homecare provider is hired, they will assess the environment and make helpful suggestions to increase safety in the home when they are not present.
Spend Time Out of the House – While aging at home is one of the biggest indicators of good emotional and mental well-being for seniors, spending time out of the house is also important for well-being. Family members who live close by can assist loved ones get out in the fresh air when weather permits or go to the store. Senior citizens enjoy visiting with their families, but homecare providers can fill in the gaps by providing well-deserved assistance.
Encourage Physical and Mental Activity – Home health care providers assist senior citizens with physical and mental exercise when they visit. Staying active in both ways helps the elderly stay safe and happy. Home health care givers also provide a source of companionship—someone to talk to and share memories that keep them alert and bright, so they can live a higher quality of life.
