Winter Safety Tips for Seniors and In Home Assisted Living

This has been a very bitterly cold winter so far, and it’s just halfway over! The roads have been slick due to freezing rain and snow. It’s very common for slips and falls to occur during these unpredictable and icy cold months. During these cold months, it’s especially important to take extra care when navigating either by foot or vehicle.

Peace of Mind Visits for Aging Loved Ones this Winter and in Home Elderly Care

The holidays are over and it’s time to get back to the daily grind. You may find yourself shuttling children to and from school, heading off to work, and getting groceries; all among many other daily chores. It may seem like there are just not enough hours in the day to accomplish all that needs to be done. It is not unusual for regular visits to an elderly loved on one to fall by the wayside. This doesn’t necessarily have to be the case. Peace of mind visits from Senior Helpers can give you the reassurance you need that your elderly loved one is doing well in their home; both emotionally and physically.

Senior Slips in the Snow Winter Fall Prevention and In Home Senior Care

The cold winds are blowing; snow is likely falling where you live. Temperatures are dipping below records in some places and the furnace is constantly running to heat our homes. There’s no turning back; it’s definitely the middle of an ice-cold winter! Winter is a difficult time for travel and for navigating, especially in any northern state. With icy conditions predicted more often than not, even walking can be treacherous! This is why it is important to take the necessary precautions for winter fall prevention.

Happy New Year and Professional In Home Senior Care

When the Times Square Ball drops in New York City’s Times Square, we all shout “Happy New Year” and send warm wishes to our family and friends as we celebrate. The great ball drop is symbolic of the passage of time from one year to the next. It’s typical in the early hours of the New Year to make resolutions to enhance our future. Many revelers vow to get healthy and exercise more. Some resolve to save more money in the New Year. This year, let’s try something different. Why not make it a goal to be happy this New Year?

To a New Year and Reliable In Home Senior Care

New Year’s Eve has always been time for looking back to the past, and more importantly, forward to the coming year. It’s a time to reflect on the changes we want and need to make and resolve to follow through on those changes. Many people resolve to spend more time with friends and family. This is a resolution that is most rewarding for everyone involved. A wish to be with the ones we love can only make our lives better in every way. You really can’t go wrong with vowing to appreciate loved ones and spend time with family this year.

To the New Year and In Home Elderly Help

The Christmas holiday has passed us and we are ready to face the New Year. We’ve all had great plans to make big changes in our lifestyle for the New Year only to slide back into our old ways in just a little bit of time. This recurring pattern may make us reluctant to make New Year’s Resolutions at all. This year will be the year we make our resolutions and keep them!

Healthy Holiday Treats and Professional in Home Care for Seniors

If your elderly loved one is anything like mine, they are probably overdoing it in the kitchen; baking up a storm that very few can contain. Many seniors find baking to be very therapeutic and can find themselves in a sea of peanut brittle, cookies, chocolate covered pretzels, cheesecakes, candies, and pies. While these delectable treats are tasty, they aren’t always the healthiest choice for a snack; especially for an elderly person who may be coping with health issues such as diabetes.

Give the Gift of Time and In Home Care for Elderly

If you have an elderly loved one in your life, this is the time of year when the gift of time is far more valuable than cash or material things. Give your elderly parent or friend time and attention in the attitude of love, not obligation. Visit them with the attitude of patience and kindness. Time is more valuable than possessions because things can be replaced and time cannot. Generosity with our time, especially with an elderly loved one, is so important. As people get older, they treasure time and memories more. Sharing memories and giving the gift of time spent together with an elderly person is the most cherished present you can possibly give.

It is hard to believe that the holidays are already here. The holiday spirit is difficult to avoid when the malls and city streets are lined with twinkling lights and sparkly garland. Some radio stations have converted to solely playing Christmas music for the month of December. You may be busy with shopping for gifts and gathering decorations to create a festive atmosphere in your home and office. There’s no ignoring it now; the holidays are here.
