It’s Lovely Weather for a Holiday Get-together and In Home Care for Seniors

The holiday season is full of celebrations, parties, and gatherings. Nevertheless, for an older loved one, holiday outings require a little extra planning. Follow these pointers from in home care for seniors experts, Home & Hearth Caregivers, to be able to savor fun and relaxed outings with loved ones of all ages this season.

Before leaving the home, consider:

  • The amount of walking involved, and if there is parking nearby
  • Whether the destination is flat or has hills or stairs to climb
  • If there will be wheelchair access (if appropriate)
  • Whether there is cover and shade
  • Whether you can find bathroom facilities
  • Whether there are chairs or benches available just in case the senior wants to rest

Be certain to prepare for a wide array of potential changes in plans:

  • Have all the medicines needed and take an extra supply, in the event the outing lasts longer or takes an unexpected turn
  • Have appropriate clothing as well as sun and rain protection
  • Take something to eat and drink with you, in case of a delay

Need some holiday outing ideas that older adults will enjoy? Think about the following:

  • Take a leisurely family drive to check out the regional town holiday lights
  • If it is feasible and received warmly, invite the senior to your home to decorate
  • Assist your elderly loved one at a holiday party for older adults at a local senior center
  • Attend local and community plays; besides the local theater or ballet, there are affordable plays and shows carried out by local schools

Whatever activities you participate in this holiday season, take things slow and create an environment that is relaxed to make fully sure your loved one is comfortable and happy.
