New Year’s Resolution for Seniors and their Families

2020 is finally here and you probably have a list of goals that you want to accomplish throughout this new year. We have a few suggestions related to Home Health Care in Augusta GA for Seniors and their Families and Caregivers. Check it out and tell us what you think!

Happy New Year
  • Walk at least 30 minutes everyday. This seems like something so small, but you would be surprised that some people do not get up and move their bodies often. It is very important to exercise your muscles daily. You can walk in your neighborhood or check out some local walking trails such as Grovetown Trails Park at Euchee Creek, Augusta Canal, Evans Towne Center Park, and Diamond Lakes Regional Park to name a few.
  • Seek Respite Care for Caregivers. We get a lot of calls and inquiries for Senior Home Care cases in Augusta, GA during the holidays. This is the time when primary caregivers are home with their elderly loved one and they realize that caregiving for an elderly family member can be a bit overwhelming when trying to balance other responsibilities. It’s important for caregivers to “take a break” and “recharge”. Zena Home Care offers Respite services so caregivers can have the opportunity to take a vacation or even do weekly grocery shopping and not worry about their loved ones being taken care of at home.
  • Socialize. Being around others is essential for your mental and spiritual health. Seniors oftentimes battle depression because of isolation from friends, family and community. If you know an elderly person, reach out to them via phone calls, stop by and visit them, volunteer to take them out if they are physically able. You can also reach out to local Augusta GA Home Care agencies like Zena Home Care to inquire about Companion services so that your elderly loved one is having consistent interaction with someone.
