Have you noticed something different in the air? It may have snuck up without you knowing it, but luckily, it is here. Yes, you are correct! That is the sun shining brighter and making everything around you greener and warmer. It is time to embrace the beautiful weather. Why not share a gorgeous spring afternoon with your dad or mom and go for a picnic? Even a walk around the block can make them smile.
Winter brings many things special such as Christmas and warm fires; but also grey days, and frigid temperatures. It is much harder to get out in the cold, especially for ailing seniors. Staying indoors for months can cause depression and loneliness. But spring is the time to step out with them and help them stay active. If you do not have the time to take dad or mom on an outing, a Home Instead Senior Care in-home helper may be just the answer. We can take them to their appointments, luncheons with friends, or out for that afternoon stroll around the block.
Enjoy the fresh air and shining sun to kick the winter blues to the curb. Take advantage of the weather when you get your senior involved with these exciting activities:
Taking dad and mom for an outing may not always be possible when you have a busy life with numerous responsibilities. A senior care professional steps in when you are not available. Home Instead Senior Care Edmonton teams up with your family, helping you find the right assistance to keep your loved one active. We aim to serve families continually and help seniors remain living independently. Our caregivers are highly trained and ready to assist in any way you need.
