Some holidays leave our senior citizens feeling lonely and forgotten. In this hectic world, we find ourselves with so much to do and so little time to do everything. Kids need to go to practice. Mom needs to stop by grocery store afterwards, Dad has a business meeting run late, etc. Then we have Grandmother sitting home alone all day...most every day...wishing she could see her family. Time is precious, but time spent with family is most valuable and memorable.
This year, take time to stop by your loved one's home and visit with them.
1) Surprise them with their favorite pie. *Our caregiver can help them eat it and put it away.
2) Take them to eat lunch at a restaraunt. *Our caregiver can accompany you to ensure your loved one maintains balance, mobility, etc.
3) Rifle through old photos and let them tell you all about the fun times of their lives. *Our caregiver like to do this with our senior care recipients not only to bond with their client, but to keep active the care recipient's memory skills and brain function.
4) Stop by to spend some time just sitting and talking about whatever suits your fancy. *Our caregiver can perform other duties while you are there, such as cleaning the home, meal preparation, run errands for the care recipient, etc.
Let's have a great holiday weekend, but let's include those who came before us and love us more than we know. Our moms, dads, grandmothers, grandfathers, aunts and uncles may have aged, but they want to be part of the family still. Let SEI Healthcare help you enjoy your precious time with your loved ones by assisting in meal preparation, personal care and continence care, housework and medication reminders for your loved one. SEI Healthcare is proud to provide you a stress-free bonding time with your loved one as our caregivers provide quality, compassionate non-medical homecare to your loved ones.
