Comfort Keepers home caregivers can lend a helping hand for seniors in Vancouver, WA
We all do whatever it’s in our power to keep our loved ones safe during the COVID-19 outbreak. Since seniors are most at risk, they have been directed not to leave their homes. However, staying inside day after day can take a toll on your aging loved one’s physical and mental health, which is why it is very important to take necessary steps and support your parent during this difficult time. Our home caregivers can work with your senior to create a plan that will ensure their positive mental health. It can include:
Ensuring basic needs are being met. Since your loved one cannot leave their home, making sure they have everything they need is a must. Our home caregivers can help your parent by running errands, going grocery shopping, paying their bills, picking up their prescriptions and much more.
Connecting with others whenever possible. Even in isolation your parent can stay in touch with people they love. Thanks to apps, platforms, and programs that allow video calls, your parent can talk to their friends and family members like they are in the same room. If your parent needs help, our home caregivers can help them utilize technology and keep them connected to the outside world.
Enjoying the things they love. There are so many activities that can bring your parent joy in quarantine. If they spend a lot of time in galleries and museums, they can take virtual tours and visit places they wouldn’t otherwise. Numerous streaming services are offering various music options, and nowadays podcasts on any topic are available online.
Get some exercise. Just because your loved one cannot leave their home doesn’t mean they should not stay physically active. Stretching, yoga, weight-lifting and other exercises don’t require a lot of space and can keep your parent in shape. In addition, many gyms are offering free virtual workouts your senior can do at home.
Maintain a healthy diet. If your parent gets stressed or bored they might be tempted to eat a lot of sweets or salty snacks. To ensure their wellness our home caregivers can prepare nutritious meals for your loved one and help them stay on the right track.
Spring cleaning! Since spring is here it is time for good old spring cleaning. If your loved one needs help with some of the tasks, our caregivers can assist them with light housekeeping activities such as vacuuming, dusting, laundry and more. Cleaning the house doesn’t have to feel like a chore. Your loved one can make housework fun by listening to their favorite tunes while cleaning.
