Summer is here and with it the opportunity to breathe healthy air, walk in the cool evening, and sip refreshing drinks. Those things remind us of the importance of aging in a healthy way. That is our priority as we care for our clients and help them navigate the day. Some of the things we pay attention to include:
Taking one thing at a time: We help your loved one set realistic expectation and use their energy for the things they love to do.
Move more and strengthen muscles: Lifting even light weights can help to prevent osteoporosis and other diseases. It’s about motivating and encouraging your loved ones with fun activities and companionship.
Eating good food: Our companions will cook light meals for your loved one and eat with them to provide company. When seniors eat good food, they generally feel better and have more energy.
If you need help encouraging your loved one to practice healthy habits, give us a call. We are happy to help. Call (888) 962-4836.
