Discover the Ways Our Charlotte, NC Caregivers Can Help Address Senior Isolation
Caregiver support in Charlotte, NC for those who need it most
Isolation has always been a problem for senior loved ones, but the pandemic exacerbated it more. Quarantining can help protect all of us from infection, but it can also have a negative impact on mental and emotional health. The good news is that families and caregivers can help seniors make the most of their current circumstances while also ensuring that they maintain their psychological well-being. We’re here to help in Charlotte, NC and the surrounding area. Call us at (704) 980-7620.
Meeting your loved one’s needs
Your loved one's basic needs must be met, including food and other supplies, while they are living in isolation. Because they are unable to leave their house, it is imperative that they receive all of their essentials. If you or other family members are not able to do this, our caregivers can help out by running errands, going grocery shopping, picking up prescriptions, and taking care of other tasks outside of the home. Whenever possible, your parents should make an effort to maintain social contact with others. This doesn't mean they should leave the house. They can easily keep in touch with their loved ones thanks to the Internet, video calls, texts, and emails.
Keeping a routine with normalcy
The activities that make your parents happy should not be restricted because they are in quarantine. A virtual tour of some of the world's most renowned museums is available for those who frequently visit their local counterparts. Keep them entertained by playing new card games, listening to their favorite tunes, or watching old movies.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle requires regular exercise, especially for the elderly. So many exercises can be done in the living room, so it's a good thing there are so many options. When it comes to exercising at home, you can find free virtual workouts for yoga or weightlifting.
Seniors who live alone may be tempted to eat frozen dinners and fast food instead of following their healthy eating habits. Your loved one's nutrition can be monitored by having our caregivers prepare nutritious meals for them.
We help manage the home
The importance of keeping your loved one's home clean and disinfected cannot be overstated. We are happy to assist your parents with light housekeeping tasks and their spring-cleaning project if they so desire.
