Our senior loved ones experience stress like every single one of us. And just like us, the way they do and the causes for it are different because of where they are in this stage of their life.
These certain differences are especially important to consider because the stress in their golden years does not manifest in the same way as it does in our younger years.
Fortunately, however, you can help your seniors manage their stress. Here are the ways we do this as a provider of home health care in Connecticut at Quality Staffing Homemaker-Home Health Aide Agency:
- Help them identify what is causing their stress. Sometimes, your seniors may be too overwhelmed in their situation that they fail to see the root cause of their stress.
- Help them exercise or do a physical activity to boost their mood. Make sure that the activities they are doing are age and ability-appropriate. If you can’t ensure this, make sure that they have a personal care attendant for assistance.
- Help them maintain a connection with their social circle and even make new ones. With the present situation, however, consider arranging game nights and weekly sharing through video calls at this time.
- Help make their day-to-day activities easier by enlisting the help of a caregiver or a home health aide in Connecticut. Remember, the fastest way to caregiver burnout is being unprepared to take on the role.
