At Home Care Will Help You Feel Happier When At Home
As the elderly loved one's age, they face many new challenges: health concerns, lack of mobility and difficulties with basic activities of daily living. As seniors begin to encounter these new obstacles, it is natural to immediately consider a nursing home or assisted-living facility to ensure safety and companionship for your loved one.
There are other options, however. Seniors can avoid feelings of isolation and unhappiness with the help of at-home care solutions that will keep them engaged —in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes.
Our highly trained Comfort Keepers understand that cognitive skills decline as seniors begin to interact less. That’s why Comfort Keepers are passionate about providing our distinctive approach to in-home care—Interactive Caregiving™:
The key to staying healthy is to keep moving
According to HELPGUIDE.ORG, regular exercise can help boost energy, maintain your independence and manage symptoms of illness or pain. Our Comfort Keepers support clients by participating in activities that keep them moving. Examples include walks and dancing.
Feel happier by minimizing clutter
What many people don’t realize is that clutter causes stress and anxiety. Seniors don’t have to tackle the task of minimizing clutter alone. Here are some practical tips from the Yale School of Medicine for reducing clutter for less stressful and safer surroundings at home.
Stay social for greater happiness at home
It’s important for seniors to interact with friends and family members over the phone or in-person whenever possible. With Interactive Caregiving™, our Comfort Keepers enjoy discussing current events, personal interests and reminiscing while working on hobbies. We even encourage getting out and about—shopping or trips to the local senior center, group activities or church. And our transportation services make it possible, safe and easy.
Our local home care agencies in Enid, Bethany, Stillwater, Norman, Midwest City, Yukon, Moore, Edmond and the surrounding areas of Oklahoma City are dedicated to helping your loved one stay happier at home and avoid having to leave the familiar surroundings where so many memories have been made.
