Different seasons have different challenges and with that in mind, Comfort Keepers® Home Care has put together a short list of fall senior care tips for you and your senior loved ones:
Get plenty of sleep: Ensuring that you get enough sleep can help you avoid becoming ill and helps with alertness while driving in dangerous conditions.
Prepare for ice and snow: Part of cold weather senior sadwty that cannot be overlooked is snow and ice preparation. If you live in a colder area be sure that ice for walkways, car brushes, and shovels are easily accessible
Clean the leaves: While it is true that the colorful leaves that come with the change of the season are beautiful, they are also a potential safety hazard. Leaves can be slippery while wet and piles of leaves can obscure potentially dangerous obstacles, making ensuring that you or your loved one have clean gutters and walkways is a crucial part of autumn senior care and safety.
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.
