Clairemont Mesa Senior Homecare Agency Supports Anti-Boredom Month and Publishes Guide to Help the Elderly Stay Emotionally Healthy and Fight Boredom. Offers Free Online Needs Assessment to Help Families Understand Senior Care Options.
— Firstat Nursing Services, a Clairemont Mesa Home Care and Senior Caregivers Agency shares “Ways to Help the Elderly Stay Emotionally Healthy and Fight Boredom”
“Boredom is a serious problem for many, but for the elderly it leads to a feeling of being worthless and is emotionally destructive.,” says Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services. Boredom is more prevalent in the elderly due to a sense of isolation caused by physical limitations. That’s where a caregiver can create a higher quality of life for their older patients.
Here are a few ways an in-home caregiver can help seniors cope with boredom.
Caregivers Do More Than Address Medical Issues - Most of the time, people think home health care providers are simply used for medical purposes. While a caregiver can, and will, monitor a senior’s physical situation, they do far more to help the elderly enjoy a better life. Home health care nurses will help their elderly clients get out whenever possible and visit with friends and find community resources so they can get together with others in their age-group.
Elder Care Professionals Can Plan Trips and Coordinate Family Visits – In-home caregivers can plan trips to local attractions such as museums, movies or theater performances. Not only can a senior caregiver help the elderly with games and art projects, social events and activities, they will also help the senior citizen plan for visits from friends and family members.
In-Home Caregivers Can Help Seniors with Physical Exercise - It’s hard for seniors to exercise, and many will not attempt physical fitness exercises, either out of fear of injury or simply because it is hard. Unfortunately, not using muscles means losing muscle mass, and seniors can’t afford to lose muscle ability faster than they would otherwise.
An in-home health provider will develop a safe routine of physical exercise for their senior clients that will keep them moving and as healthy as possible without danger. Being there for the senior as they go through the exercise routine keeps them motivated and also ensures they are safe while maintaining their physical health as well.
