Give the Gift of In Home Help
It comes as no surprise that you may have so much going on and so much on your plate that you may not realize that an elderly loved one is not so busy this time of year. When we get so wrapped up in the details of the holiday season it is easy to forget that those without young children to surprise in their home are probably not feeling quite so festive. Often, our elderly loved ones host very few visitors, if any. Your loved one may not live close enough to you that a regular visit is possible. Many elderly seniors aren’t fortunate enough to have family that visit regularly, let alone during the holiday season. This is where giving the gift of in-home help and companionship is most appreciated.
Some elderly may express some unease about allowing a stranger into their home. You can assure them that with this gift of care from Senior Helpers of Santa Barbara, 805-687-7777, that they are receiving assistance from a caring individual who has been thoroughly background screened, interviewed and is insured and bonded through the company. Your loved one’ safety is always a top priority. When you give your elderly loved one the gift of senior care, you also give your family the gift of peace of mind. The compassionate caregivers from Senior Helpers of Santa Barbara will assist your elderly loved one in the privacy and comforts of their home. Give the gift of care to your loved one that will include help with daily household tasks such as laundry and ironing. Your loved one may appreciate assistance with meal prep, clean up and help with other daily chores.
The Christmas holiday is upon us and soon we will be exchanging gifts with one another. The look of pure joy on a child’s face will be priceless and getting a good laugh out of a friend or family member will be a wonderful reward for a thoughtful gift. There is no getting around the fact that the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is in full swing.
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.
