Welcome to summer, a great time to get outdoors and enjoy the sunshine. Summer certainly provides opportunity for fun, but it also can present concerns for the elderly like remaining well hydrated and eating safe food. Our caregivers work with seniors on these issues – all part of making sure they can live in their own homes for as long as possible. They also counsel seniors and their families on falls prevention and coping with dementia. We’ve presented several articles on these challenges in this issue. Aging is complex, but it can be done well with the right information.
We hope that you are your family enjoy the summer safely. If you need assistance with housekeeping, transportation or companionship for long summer days, let us know. Our caregivers are just a phone call away. If you have questions, concerns or feedback about this magazine, please give us a call, (888) 962-4836.
