Changing your senior care routine to reflect the season can be easy, maybe your loved one will change their diet to incorporate more seasonal fruits and veggies or perhaps you help make sure your loved one has easy access to salt in case of an early snowstorm. In order to help you get started, Comfort Keepers® Home Care has put together a few seasonal care tips:
Dress for the weather: Depending on where you live, the weather can vary wildly during the fall. Start getting ready for the colder weather by bringing out sweaters, jackets, and nonslip boots, but be sure not to completely pack away warmer weather clothing. You might also consider layering for days with chilly mornings and warm afternoons.
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.
Prepare for ice and snow: If you live in a colder area be sure that ice for walkways, car brushes, and shovels are easily accessible.
Get plenty of sleep: Did you know that being certain you and your loved ones are getting enough rest is an important part of fall senior care? Ensuring that you get enough sleep can help you avoid becoming ill and helps with alertness while driving in dangerous conditions.
