San Diego Homecare and Caregiver Agency Supports National Safety Month

Firstat Nursing Services, a San Diego Homecare and Senior Caregiver Agency supports National Safety Month by publishing, 3 Ways to Make Life Safer and Happier for Senior Citizens. “Family members can help their loved ones stay safe and make the best of their golden years by providing assistance in several ways,” said Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services.

Here are three ways to make life safer and happier for senior citizens.

Cyber Security for Senior Citizens - Being online is a part of modern social culture, but seniors are one of the most often targeted age-groups for cyber-crime. Family members can help elderly loved ones understand the dangers of sharing personal information online and encourage them to create strong passwords that are unique.

Outdoor Safety - Spending time outside in the fresh air and sunshine is one of the best ways to fight the effects of isolation and depression. Family members should make sure elderly loved ones understand the pitfalls of summer heat by helping them avoid too much time in the hot sun and the importance of staying hydrated.

Home Safety - Family members can help seniors stay safe at home by getting help from a qualified home nursing company. Having a trained professional available to check in on a senior is smart. While care typically involves medical assistance, it also includes help with personal hygiene, light housekeeping and offers companionship on a regular basis.
