A year has passed, but the threat of the pandemic is still here. Although the country is slowly getting back on track, we can’t deny that this is the new normal. The holiday is one of the most important seasons. However, we still need to manage our expectations for the holidays. It will be hard to go back to what we are used to doing, especially with the sensitivity of the senior’s health. As a provider of personal care, seniors need to continue to follow health protocols. Especially now, where gatherings are most likely to happen already.
Aside from considering alternatives on what to do, it is still significant to include your elderly loved ones in your holiday plans. For them, it is to have a family dinner and gather under one roof to celebrate. As a home care service in Colorado, we can help you meet the guidelines safely. We offer caregiving assistance where we can assist and monitor the elderly.
If you decide to celebrate together with your loved ones, make sure to cook a special and healthy meal. Note in mind also not to overexert your seniors and consider going out for a drive. A change of scenery can be good for their mental and physical health. However, if time and circumstances forbid you to celebrate with them in person, video calls can be a great and safe option. Our caregivers in ARISE HOME HEALTH CARE INC can assist the seniors while under our care. Just make sure to make time anytime soon after.
