    Author: Stay Home Forever | | Categories: Companionship Services, Home Care, Live-out Full Time caregivers, Respite Care, Senior Care, Live-in Caregivers

    As a caregiver, you know that assisting a senior adult at home can be both stressful and rewarding. The best way to ensure that you’re doing everything in your power to help your loved one is to know exactly what their needs are.

    Here are some tips for making sure you’re providing the best support possible.

    Keep An Open Line Of Communication

    They may not be able to tell you about their symptoms or challenges, but they will let you know if something is wrong by acting differently than usual. If your loved one seems withdrawn or sad, talk to them about it. Ask them what’s going on and how they’re feeling so that you can help make adjustments in how often or how much care they need from you.

    Offer Help With Transportation

    If your loved one is having trouble getting around, then this may be a great place for you to start. Not only will it help them get out of the house more often (which is good for their health), but it’ll also give them more independence. This can make them feel valued and appreciated by others who aren’t always around to pick them up from social events or other places where they might need transportation assistance.

    Make Sure They Are Eating Well

    In addition to helping the senior adult get around safely, you should also make sure they are eating healthy foods on a regular basis. This can help make their overall health better which means less concerns about future medical issues down the road (like heart disease). It’s important that caregivers take these things into consideration when caring for an elderly person because they won’t always be able to do everything themselves!

    Don’t Be Afraid To Ask Questions!

    If you don’t know what your loved one’s needs are, how can you meet them? Asking open-ended questions will help them feel more comfortable with their situation, which will make it easier for them to talk about things they might otherwise keep hidden. These questions should cover all aspects of their health and well-being, including eating habits and sleeping patterns as well as any medical issues they may have (such as diabetes or heart problems).

    Look For Potential Safety Issues

    If necessary, you might want to consider purchasing some grab bars for your bathroom and kitchen areas so that your loved one can have something to hold onto while getting up or down from the toilet or sink. It will also help prevent falls if your loved one loses their balance while bathing or washing dishes. These come in all shapes and sizes now, so be sure to pick out something that fits well in your bathroom or kitchen area! Additionally, you could contact an outside organization to complete an assessment and renovate your home according to your safety issues.

    My dad turned 84 in November 2021. I contemplated if I should have a party for him or not. After all, 84 was not a big milestone. I was already planning his 85th birthday bash and with COVID did I want a lot of people surrounding him?

    After giving some thought I decided to have a party. 2020 and the beginning of 2021 was an extremely hard time for him. Apart from the fact that he was dealing with the death of my mother who he was married to for 52 years, being housebound due to the pandemic, he was struggling with a lot of health issues. Not a month passed by without me having to call 911 and rushing him to hospital. There were many times I did not think he will survive. But he pulled through and he has not been in this great state of health for many years. I decided it was time to celebrate. CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL ARTICLE »
