A Little Help Goes A Long Way
Often a smiling, helpful professional care provider is all that is needed to get the day started off just right. For early birds, assistance with showering, a medication reminder, preparing a good breakfast, and taking a walk while having a cheerful conversation can all help a senior to continue to thrive while living independently at home. Some may prefer assistance later in the day, desiring socialization and support around the evening meal. Whatever the case, a little structure in each day helps seniors to feel more positive about their lives, and scheduling daily tasks, as well as fun and stimulating activities, is essential to fostering independence and maintaining cognitive abilities.
For seniors whose loved ones live remotely or have limited opportunity to visit, a Right at Home companion would be just the right person to help fill the hours at home during the week by building an enjoyable, positive and meaningful relationship with a new client and friend. Their "fun" could be happy chatter while baking cookies, talking about current events, keeping up on favorite sporting events, sitting out on a patio with a glass of lemonade and reminiscing, or any of the many examples below:
- Work on a photo album or other craft project
- Go for a scenic drive with a picnic and stop for ice cream on the way home!
- Plan the weekly menu and make the shopping list together
- Plan future fun projects and activities, putting them into a calendar
- Talk about favorite movies and rent one to watch together
- Help write letters or emails to friends and relatives
Experience shows us that our clients look forward to and enjoy the time spent with their companion. For those needing a higher level of physical assistance, our personal care services may be appropriate. Whether we are providing companion care, personal care, or any of our specialized care services, our goal is to help every client have a good day, every day.
