How to Make Every Day Feel Meaningful for Your Elderly Loved One

???????????????????????????????????????Do you have an elderly loved one at home who looks bored every time you come home from a long day at work?  When seniors retire from a successful career where they’ve spent three-quarters of their lives, they can feel a real sense of loss, such as losing their purpose.  All their children are grown and leading their own lives, and the retirees don’t have to get up at a certain hour to work anymore.  Maybe your loved ones were asked to retire before they were ready, because their employer wanted to make room for younger talents who have more energy.  So here you are, feeling bad for your parents, yet you’re too exhausted to give much attention to them at all.

A-1 Home Care will find plenty of recreational activities for your elderly loved one around Burbank.  If your parents had to relocate far from their home, they are likely to miss their friends but yet they don’t feel up to making new social circles at their age.  You can have a companion care aide during the day or night to accompany your loved ones on activities such as these:

  • Garden care
  • Visits to the museums, parks or beach
  • Short day trips to destinations that your parents have always longed to visit
  • Traveling companions on farther trips to another state or country
  • Social visits to old friends (it always helps to have a traveling companion during a long trip)
  • Volunteer opportunities at a nearby shelter
  • Arts & crafts activities at a nearby senior center
  • Attending classes at a community center to learn new skills
  • Exploring different restaurants in town

Round-the-clock companion care will take a load off your shoulders, and you won’t have to worry anymore if your loved one needs help with anything.  Companion care will greatly decrease depression and therefore improve physical health.  As one of the few state-licensed agencies in California, A-1 Home Care in Burbank also serves to protect your elderly loved ones from harm, predators, scam artists, theft and fraud.
