How Should You Adapt Your Senior Care To The Changing Season in Twin Falls, ID And The Surrounding Area
No matter what you enjoy about the changing seasons, the chilly weather, the colorful leaves, the upcoming holidays, it’s important to always be safe. Senior care, like the fruits and veggies you eat, should change with the seasons. How you care for yourself or your loved one during the summer can be incredibly different than during the winter, especially when the snow starts falling.
With this in mind, Comfort Keepers® Home Care has created a shortlist of ways you can start prepping for fall senior care:
Be cautious with candles: With the colder weather coming you may feel like burning candles to cozy up your home, however, don’t forget that candles can be dangerous. Always be sure to put out any candles if you’re leaving your home or going to bed and keep them well away from where a pet may knock them down.
Be aware of your back: Ensuring that you and your loved ones are protecting their back is a highly important part or fall senior safety. When raking leaves or shoveling snow, be sure not to overdo it! Stretch before you begin working and take breaks to avoid getting overtired.
Avoid seasonal illnesses: The frequency and severity of illnesses increases as the weather gets colder, making avoiding illness imperative. Handwashing is one of the most effective ways to avoid becoming ill, especially if you or your loved one have been in public or are about to eat. Seniors who are able should also get the flu shot.
Test and replace alarm batteries: This is more than just a senior care safety tip, as everyone, young or old, should test and replace smoke and carbon monoxide alarm batteries every 6 months. Many people use Daylight Savings Time as a reminder.
