Filed under: Aging,Senior Safety,Seniors — seniorlivingguide @ 5:27 pm

Seniors Can Have a Safe and Fun Holiday Event

By Brooke Chaplan

The holidays are often filled with countless parties and dinner plans that fill us with happiness and cheer. However, many seniors can feel left out at this time of year due to mobility issues or the fact that they live alone. Keep these four ideas in mind to make sure your loved ones enjoy the holidays to the fullest:

Arrange Transportation Ahead of Time

If your elderly loved ones are planning to attend a holiday event this year, it’s important to keep their safety in mind. Start planning for this upcoming event by arranging transportation to and from the event ahead of time. If you aren’t able to provide transportation, consider sending them in a cab, Uber, or Lyft. Similarly, if you have any friends or family members that are attending, ask them to carpool.

Plan for Caregivers to Attend

Seniors that need to have their caregivers with them throughout the day should be accompanied by them to any holiday celebrations. Make sure that any holiday plans fit into the caregiver’s schedule so that your elderly loved ones will be taken care of regardless of whether you are there or not. With the holidays around the corner, it’s best to ask the caretaker well in advance so they can fit it into their schedule.

Throw a Holiday Party Yourself

For many family members, the best and safest holiday event is the one they throw themselves. With the right party plan, you can give your loved ones a holiday experience they won’t forget while making sure the environment is as safe as possible. With all your loved ones close by, your elderly family members will feel the true spirit of this holiday season.

Invite Other Family and Friends

If your senior loved ones want to go to a particular holiday event, consider inviting the entire family. Depending on the location of your holiday event, it may be a good idea to invite other family and friends to the event. For example, if your community is hosting a holiday light show, bringing all your friends and family members to the event is a great way to make sure your elderly loved ones are surrounded with as much love as possible at this time of year.

Make sure the seniors in your life are able to enjoy the holiday season this year. Keep these four ideas in mind to find new ways to engage them this season.

Did you know that during the holiday’s many folks take advantage of visiting with their older family members and loved ones?

It’s an ideal time to spend time with them. It’s also a good time to see how they are doing in their daily lives and home life. It’s a good opportunity to make some assessments that might be helpful to ensure their quality of life. That’s what family is for, right?

This holiday season, take some time out of your busy schedule to make certain your older adults and loved ones are doing well. Take time to assess and make sure your loved one is living in a safe home environment.

A few straightforward safety improvements do not take a lot of time or money. These improvements can significantly reduce the risk of common accidents and falls that could alter the quality of life of a senior. Many older adults have a fear of falling and limit their activities out of that fear. This can result in depression, less physical activity, a decrease in social interaction and feelings of helplessness.

Seniors are more prone to a fall due to aging, poor eyesight, and poor hearing. Balance and illness can cause problems and increase their chance of falling. A few tips on creating a safer home environment would include:

  • Make sure rooms are well lit
  • Remove room rugs that would be tripping hazards
  • Make sure rooms are easy to maneuver and clutter-free
  • Bathroom safety is a must!

Creating a safe bathroom environment is quite simple and can be done aesthetically pleasing as well. GrabAcessories allows you to create a beautiful, functional, safe bathroom from the shower bars to the towel bars. They provide very sturdy hardware with the ability to hold up to 500 lbs. and can be shipped right to your door!

Once you have enjoyed time and made any assessments about your elderly loved one’s safety and home life, make notes for your next visit. It’s always good to have a little comparison to make sure that they are getting what they need when they need it.

Staying Safe and Warm During the Winter Months—A Guide for Seniors

Filed under: Aging,Seniors Health — seniorlivingguide @ 8:55 am

seniors health

By Lizzie Weakley

As you get older, your metabolism slows down and your circulation decreases. Common aging-related diseases like diabetes and hypothyroidism can also decrease your cold tolerance. This means that seniors are especially vulnerable to winter dangers like hypothermia, frostbite and pneumonia. Read on to learn how you can stay warm and safe during the coldest months of the year.

Dress in Layers

Bundling up in layers is a great way to stay warm in any temperature because you easily remove outer layers indoors or if the weather changes. Try a long-sleeved shirt under a cardigan with a jacket on top or a hooded sweatshirt with a cotton tee underneath. Accessories like scarves and gloves add extra warmth.

Drink Hot Beverages

A mug of hot cocoa, a cup of hot tea or some java from the corner coffee shop can warm you up from the inside. Holding the hot container can also keep your hands warm. If drinks aren’t your thing, try a steaming bowl of soup or a hot slice of apple pie.

Adjust the Thermostat

Turning the heat up is an obvious way to keep warm, but high heating bills and malfunctioning HVAC systems can be an obstacle for many seniors. If you or someone you love can’t afford to stay warm, look into special programs that help seniors cover energy bills in the winter or pay for heating repair services.

Reverse Ceiling Fans

Your ceiling fan provides a nice cooling breeze in the summer, but did you know that it can also help you stay warm in the winter? Reversing the blades on your fans pushes warm air down into the room to keep you cozy instead of wasting it at ceiling-level. Most new fans have a small switch you can flip to change their direction.

Take Warm Baths

There’s nothing like a warm bath to take off the chill, but remember to be safe in the tub. Install grab bars to help you get in and out, use non-slip bathmats and a bath chair if needed. Check the temperature of your bath with a thermometer to prevent burns. Water that seems fine to the touch may be too hot for soaking. You can get help from a loved one or an assistant if you have trouble getting in the bath.

Although it’s normal to need the thermostat turned up as you grow older, being cold constantly even when the temperature is very warm can be a sign of something serious. If you suddenly get cold more easily than usual or find it difficult to keep warm, schedule an appointment with your doctor.

4 Benefits to Retiring in a Community Home

Filed under: Retirement Planning — seniorlivingguide @ 10:42 am

By Meghan Belnap

The choice of when and where to retire is a deeply personal choice. You can live on your own or with others. Community housing for retirees offers amenities that may not be offered elsewhere. Do some research on them before you commit.

No More “Parenting the Parent”

Adult children may find themselves in the role of primary caregiver as their parents age. That could be stressful for all parties involved. It can create a sentiment of unequal responsibility. Community housing provides greater freedom to the parents as they are once again homeowners in a community of individuals going through the same period of life together. In retirement communities, there is no fear of not measuring up to the younger generation, and it is specifically set up to be empowering to those in their retirement years.

Safety at Hand

Senior living communities are built close to hospitals. If the worst happens then residents won’t have to wait as long to receive care. Immediate intervention is especially critical for seniors to recover quickly. Other services, such as in-home assistants and lifeline companies, also often set up their practice near these communities specifically to cater to the older generation. When looking at active adult community home listings, make sure to examine the amenities available in the area to find the community best catered to your needs.

A New Kind of Social Network

Not all seniors still can (or want to) drive. A senior living community brings everyone together. The longest trip to see friends is just a walk away. Fellow residents are all within the same age range, as mentioned, going through the same stages of life. This means that activities available are catered directly to the interests of your demographic. Community housing organizes field trips, classes, movie nights, and group dinners. There’s a wide range of options without the stress of having to make events a big outing.

Shifting Priorities for the Better

Owning a home is a lot of work. You have to think about yard work and neighborhood safety. Upkeep within the home can also feel like a to-do list that never ends. A senior home takes all that work away. There is often a dedicated housekeeping staff that does laundry and room cleaning. If the senior home is in a suburb or the countryside there may also be landscaping services. You can enjoy the grounds on your own terms without mentally cataloging each untrimmed shrub and stray leaf.

Your children may also want to have a say in where you end up living. They might want you to live closer to them or in a warmer climate. Make a list of the facilities that look most appealing to you. Then bring that list to the table so you can have a family conversation about next steps.

5 Ways Caregivers Can Refresh at the End of the Week

Filed under: Caregivers — seniorlivingguide @ 5:34 am

Find Home Health Care providers on SeniorLivingGuide.com

By Anica Oaks

Whether you’re giving care to a loved one or your job is to take care of others, it can get overwhelming by the end of the week. By having a plan of ways to refresh your body and mind, you can return to your loved one or patients ready to tackle anything. Here are four suggestions for how to spend your time away at the end of the week to ensure you’re refreshed to start another week.

Spend Some Time Getting Self-Care at the Massage Parlor

Taking care of a disabled person is both mentally and physically exhausting. At the end of the week, you’re going to need to set aside some time for self-care. A great way to help reduce your stress levels and quiet your mind is to get a massage. The physical touch from the masseur along with the release of tension in the body can be just what you need to refresh yourself to start another week of caring for someone else.

Visit with Friends or Family

Just spending some time with loved ones can be a great way to relax after a long week as a caregiver. Whether you plan to meet friends or family at their home or out for dinner, you should opt for picking a place that you would like. It’s best to always schedule some time at the end of the week to share with others who can take your mind off of matters that you are mentally dealing with through your role as a caregiver.

Spend Time Exercising

One of the best ways to reduce your stress levels and feel good about your body is to workout. You don’t have to schedule a harsh workout that you are dreading. Rather, pick a workout type that you enjoy. For example, you can try weightlifting, crossfit, yoga, or Pilates. Just pick an activity that really interests you so that you have something physical to look forward too at the end of the week.

Take a Day Trip Somewhere Fun

The weekend is a great time to adventure into new territory. Decide to take a day trip to somewhere that interests you. This could be a nature park or a casino. The possibilities are really endless. Just pick something that seems interesting to you and go do it. Just planning a day around what you like is a great way to refresh your mind and soul after a hard week.

Hire Extra Help

Taking care of a loved one throughout the week, while rewarding, is also physically and mentally exhausting. When the end of the week comes a caregiver may be looking for relief that doesn’t come that easily. The weekend can even mean extra work, in some instances with additional activities and errands to do. Hiring extra senior care help can lighten the load a few days a week and give you a chance to regroup before the next week starts.

A caregiver has a lot on their plate. Each day can be both physically and mentally taxing. If you find that you’re in need of a refresh at the end of the week, the above four options are great activities to do.

5 Tips for Dealing with Chronic Pain as a Senior

Filed under: Aging,Healthcare,Seniors Health — Tags: — seniorlivingguide @ 5:02 am

elderly pain management

By Lizzie Weakley

As we get older, our bodies may begin to require more care and might function less efficiently than when we were younger. After decades of wear and tear, our joints, muscles, and bones begin to ache from years of service. In addition, the older we get, the risk for a chronic illness increases, which may cause chronic pain or discomfort. Fortunately, there are ways to deal with this problem that are both practical and affordable. Check with your doctor before trying any of these tips.

Routine Exercise

Depending on your age and overall health, your doctor may give you approval for starting an exercise program. This can be done at home by watching an exercise program for persons whose circumstances, like age and health, are similar to yours. Alternately, the doctor may suggest joining a local YMCA or recreation center exercise class that meets at least weekly. Exercise can help to strengthen bones while making joints and muscles more limber. Systematic exercise also may stimulate the production of your body’s endorphins, which can ease pain and help you feel better. The immune system may also benefit and contribute to the reduction of inflammation.

Healthy Eating

Avoid inflammatory foods like sugar, and for some, white flour or gluten, may ease physical discomfort. Weight reduction for obese persons can take extra pounds off of the body frame, also reducing physical discomfort. Certain foods or a specific eating plan may be suggested by your doctor or a nutrition specialist to ensure you are getting all the nutrients your body needs to function efficiently, which may in turn lessen physical pain.

Relaxation

If you are a busy person with chronic pain, it may be a good idea to spend some time each day relaxing and escape stress temporarily. Taking a short nap or enjoying nature in the back yard or at the park provides a break from your daily routine, which also have a positive effect on chronic pain levels.

Medical Pain Management

Your GP may provide a referral to pain management doctors who can treat your discomfort from a medical perspective. With many treatment options to choose from, there is a good chance they can find ways to make you feel more comfortable. Pain management experts have the skills and knowledge needed to assist with chronic pain issues.

There is no need to suffer pain in silence. Try tips like these to get your pain under control so you can enjoy a more comfortable lifestyle.

Finding an Assisted Living Community That’s Right for You

Filed under: Assisted Living,Nursing Homes,Senior Housing — Tags: , — seniorlivingguide @ 5:31 am

Assisted Living Search

By Brooke Chaplan

If you’ve found that, as you’ve aged, you now need assistance with your daily tasks, then an assisted living facility can be a great option for you. It will provide you with the care you need to live a fulfilling life. Here are some helpful tips to ensure that you find a community that’s right for you.

Make a List of Needs

Many seniors start out by looking at the various assisted living communities and end up getting overwhelmed. Instead, start by making a list of needs. Include everything from the type of medical care that you need to the recreational activities you need in your life. When you have a list of what you’re looking for in an assisted living facility, you can better determine what facility is going to fit your needs quickly.

Set a Budget

Your assisted living care should be easily affordable for you. You should take a look at what your budget is and will be in the future. Set yourself a budget for what you can comfortably afford to pay for your cost of living, keeping in mind your retirement fund and savings. By setting your budget ahead of time, you can limit yourself to looking at facilities in your price range. If you look at facilities first, you may find yourself signing a lease for a place that you end up having trouble affording.

Take a Tour

Now, you should have a very good idea of the qualities you’re looking for in a property and what price range you can afford. Next, it’s time to get your list together of potential properties to visit. You want to take the time to tour each facility to get a feel for how it will work for you. Don’t be shy about visiting a place multiple times before you decide whether or not you want to live there.

Speak with the Current Residents

One of the best ways to get a feel for how a community will work out for you is to talk with the existing residents. See how happy they are with the assisted living facility and get some information about the daily activities that are offered for residents. You may be surprised that you can learn more from a 10-minute conversation with a resident than you’ll get from reading all the fliers about the community.

When it becomes time to move into an assisted living facility it’s likely that you’ll have a lot of questions running through your mind. Understand how to slow down and take it to step by step; this can drastically help with your overall decision on where to stay. Be sure to start by utilizing the four tips above to find an assisted living community that’s right for you.

Always on the Go: Maintain Your Mobility as You Age

Filed under: Aging,Mobility,Seniors Health — Tags: — seniorlivingguide @ 5:04 am

Seniors maintaining mobility

By Anita Ginsburg 

Unfortunately, our bodies tend to become weaker, frailer and less agile as time goes on. As a result, we become slower and our reflexes aren’t as sharp. However, that doesn’t mean it has to be this way. There are plenty of ways to keep your body in top form. Granted, this isn’t something that will magically happen nor will it happen overnight. Keep reading for tips on maintaining mobility as you age.

Eat a Nutritional Diet

Having a nutritional, well-balanced diet is one of the best ways to maintain mobility. In fact, one of the most common reasons why our bodies deteriorate is because of a poor diet. Constantly eating things that are high in fat, sugar and preservatives is not healthy, especially for older people.

In fact, we can start to lose muscle mass as early as the age of 30. Make sure to incorporate a lot of fruits, vegetables, grains and nuts into your diet every day. A good way to stay on track is to fill your plate with at least 70 percent fruits and veggies and 30 percent protein.

Manage Your Weight

Eating a healthy diet is beneficial, however, it won’t mean much if you’re overweight. Being overweight not only makes moving harder, it’s also really detrimental to your health. Being overweight is proven to cause health problems such as diabetes, which requires an ongoing medical supply of insulin. As such, it is important that you do everything in your power to maintain a healthy weight.

Exercising is one of the best ways to maintain your mobility while keeping your body healthy. Exercise is also good for our joints. Our joints become more vulnerable to injuries and damage due to the lack of synovial fluid and the cartilage becoming thinner. If you need equipment to help you stay on your feet longer for walks or errands, visit a local medical supply. While it’s important to move around as much as you can, don’t push your body past its limits by ignoring mobility tools available to you.

Take Vitamins

It is essential that everyone consumes the necessary amount of vitamins every day. However, everyone is different and may not be able to consume certain foods or drinks to do so. This is where vitamins come in. You can get vitamins through your local pharmacy or have them prescribed by your doctor. Vitamins are especially essential for people who have certain deficiencies.

Lacking the proper mobility can affect more than our physical health. It also affects our well-being. We might start to lose interest in hobbies, become depressed and we even start to isolate ourselves. Maintaining your mobility will certainly help prevent any of the above-mentioned issues from happening. Make an effort every day to follow these tips and you just might feel like you’re a teen again.

3 Things to Look for in a New Retirement Community

Filed under: Continuing Care Retirement Community,Retirement Community,Senior Housing — Tags: — seniorlivingguide @ 9:47 am

what to look for in a retirement community

By Brooke Chaplan

If you’re considering making a move to a retirement community, it’s likely going to be a big change for you. You want to pick a community that you know you’ll enjoy and feel comfortable being part of. Here are three things that you’ll want to include in your checklist to ensure you pick the right retirement community for you.

Medical Care

One of the best benefits that you can gain from some of the newer retirement communities is on-site healthcare. Many communities will offer nursing staff that visit your home or apartment regularly. This saves you the trouble of having to get to your own appointments. Not all retirement communities offer this. While you may not need medical assistance right now, it doesn’t hurt to look for a retirement facility that can provide you with this benefit in the future if your health changes.

Priced Within Your Budget

Since you’re likely not working a full-time job anymore, you’re going to be on a limited budget. You need to take the time to assess your financial situation and determine what the appropriate price range is for you. By determining this from the very start, you can ensure that you only look at adult community homes for sale that will fit in your price range. You don’t want to end up locking yourself into a living arrangement that you end up not being able to afford over the long run.

Recreation

It’s very easy to forget the recreation factor when deciding on what retirement community you want to live in. However, it’s one of the most vital components that you should be utilizing to choose the right community for you. You want a retirement house that allows you the opportunity to enjoy recreational activities that keep you moving in your golden years. A good retirement community will offer recreational activities all year long that you can enjoy participating in. Some include golf, biking, dance lessons, crafts, music shoes, trivia, gardening, cooking, and so forth.

Picking the right retirement community to fit your lifestyle should be a decision that you don’t take too lightly. You want to find a place that promotes your health and provides various benefits that you can utilize in your senior years. The above are three of these important factors that you should be including in your overall decision. Be sure to make a list and visit any potential communities before settling on which one you decide to stay at.

4 Resources You Should Consider if You are a Disabled Senior

Aging in Place

By Lizzie Weakley

If you have special needs due to being an older person with one or more disabilities, don’t hesitate to consult local social service agencies. Many now offer household assistance to help maintain safety and security at home. Here are a few types of services that may be available to eligible disabled seniors.

Housework Assistance

Many agencies provide a wide range of household assistance services that can keep you safe and comfortable at home. Housework assistance may be able to send someone to your residence to help with daily basic chores like cooking, laundry, and housecleaning. This can help to reduce or eliminate the amount of time or effort you will have to spend maintaining a clean, orderly home. Dusting, vacuuming, and other related tasks may also be covered. Find out what you may be eligible for in terms of getting this work done.

Lawn Care

While friendly neighbors may be able to help occasionally with mowing the lawn or weeding the flower beds, you might be able to get someone to assist on a regular basis. It is important to keep the yard well cared for to prevent pests and wildlife from burrowing near your home and possibly causing property damage. If they get into your home through the foundation or other entryways, that could present another problem to be addressed.

Transport

If you need rides for medical appointments or to do errands like grocery shopping, transportation might be available to accommodate people with disabilities. This may involve private transport with a regular driver or public transportation via bus or taxi. When contacting social service agencies that help older people with disabilities, ask if there is help for getting around town as needed.

Respite Services

Disabled persons often have family members or friends helping out with housework, yardwork, or other needs. However, many of those people have their own responsibilities to handle as well, or something might come up in their lives that will keep them away for a while. Social service agencies that work with disabled clients may be able to offer respite services. This provides a temporary substitute person who is qualified to provide necessary help until your regular caregivers or family members can resume their support.

While it is not easy living with a disability especially when getting older, it is good to know that valuable assistance is available for those in need. Find out about the type of services you may qualify for to make life more comfortable and secure.
