We all know what fall brings, and it is not just pumpkin spice lattes. It’s cold and flu season, that time of year when we get the runny noses, chest congestion, aches, pains, and fever that lasts for days. The demographics who are most susceptible to suffering from influenza (aka “the flu”) are children and the elderly. Seniors who contract the flu run a high chance of being hospitalized.
Reduce the chances of catching this year’s flu by being proactive. There are several steps you can take to prepare yourself or your senior. A personal support worker from Home Instead Mississauga can help you. We can help with establishing a regular sleep schedule or cooking nutritious meals. We love serving families in and around the Mississauga area so that seniors in the community can age in place.
Avoid the flu and keep enjoying your life with family, friends, and pets when you take these steps:
Stay on top of the flu this season when you take the right steps. Hiring a senior caregiver from Home Instead is an excellent choice in the right direction. We support you and your aged loved one with a custom-designed plan to meet your family’s needs.
