Homecare San Diego, Agency Shares Tips for Emotional Health

Firstat Nursing Services, a San Diego Homecare and Senior Caregiver Agency supports Emotional Wellness Month by publishing smart tips for seniors. “Having home health care services visit regularly can help people live long, happy and well-adjusted lives in their golden years,” said Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services. Here are three ways in home care can encourage emotional health in seniors.

A Great Addition to Family Provided Care-A home health care provider can help ease the burden of providing round the clock care, making sure seniors have full-time care when family can’t be present. This increases the elderly person’s mental and emotional state by allowing them to live in the homes they love, surrounded by good memories.

Spend Time Outdoors-Home care givers can help seniors get out and enjoy good weather in a safe and healthy fashion. If the senior is able, a health care provider can make it possible for them to attend local social events with others their own age. These are the things that keep elderly minds active and happy.

A Compassionate Friend-When seniors face the loss of friends or loved ones, health care providers can help them adjust and move forward. In home caregivers are trained to recognize the signs of depression, withdrawal and other mental health issues, consulting with family and medical professionals to help seniors continue to live happy lives.
