Caregiver Tips for an Easy Holiday Season - Homecare Rancho Bernardo

Firstat Nursing Services, a Rancho Bernardo Home Health Agency supports seniors by publishing smart tips for the holidays. In-home care can be a short-term arrangement for families to ensure the well-being of their senior loved ones during the holidays, or a long-term situation to help keep loved ones happy and healthy all year long,” said Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services.

Here are three ways in-home care can help seniors with the holidays.

Get Out and About During the Holidays - One of the biggest obstacles to holiday gatherings for seniors is simply the inability to travel by themselves. An in-home caregiver can help seniors get out of the house to enjoy fresh air or visit with friends.

Stay Connected to Distant Relatives - For senior citizens with distant family members, a home care provider can keep connections strong through phone or the computer. They can also help find local gatherings where seniors share experiences during the holidays. In-home caregivers can arrange for transportation to events for those capable of getting out and socializing.

Beat the Holiday Blues with In-Home Care - Having an in-home care provider helps senior citizens beat the most dangerous aspect of the holidays, the isolation blues. Seniors are vulnerable to holiday depression, especially when family members are unavailable to stop by and visit due to other holiday commitments.
