Caregivers - Mental Health Resolution for 2018
While our focus is providing in-home care services to seniors in the Bay Area, we know that everyone ages – and as we do, we may not be as mentally sharp as we once were. It’s important to think about your mental health, whether you’re 50, 60, or even 70. Taking care of your mind and brain can go a long way toward avoiding or slowing the progression of dementia or other issues. We encourage you to make ‘better mental health’ your resolution for the new year!
Making Seniors Feel Happy & Loved During the Holidays
As Bay Area caregivers, we know that many seniors are lonely and isolated a great deal of the time – but the holidays can be especially lonely for those who’ve lost their partners, live alone, or who have family that lives hundreds of miles away. Statistics reveal that more than 12 million seniors live alone, and that about a fifth of those older than 65 don’t drive. Whether you’re a friend or neighbor, family member or even a professional caregiver, how can you help seniors have a happier, more memorable Christmas and New Year’s holiday? We have a few suggestions.
At Care Indeed, we believe that when our caregivers, our clients and our clients’ family members are facing challenges, information and education are absolutely vital. That is why our Care Blog is focused on providing the knowledge needed to understand the ins and outs of common diseases, care techniques and even training opportunities.
We want to be able to support those who need help with day-to-day tasks with interesting tidbits and advice that help to provide peace of mind, know-how and an entertaining read. As you read through each one of our blogs, know that the support you need is just a click away. Whether an individual just wants a friendly face to catch up with over a cup of tea, or they need some more support due to a health diagnosis, our professionals are available 24/7.
