Sometimes the best home care brings the movies to your mom and dad

Your mom or dad may feel as if going to the movies is like being a square peg in a round hole. Many movies today are produced for the younger crowd and finding a connection with many of these new selections may be difficult. One of our best home care specialists can recognize the need for your loved one to participate in a day out to the movies, or an evening of sharing a movie and popcorn with friends and family.

When considering caregiving for your mother or father, you are looking for the best home care and for many that includes something more than personal attention and medication delivery. Entertainment and socialization are key to wellness, and movies have always brought delight to many. The best caregiver for your parent relates to your loved one’s interest, and when it pertains to the entertainment, they can help them seek out what is available.

Whether it’s Netflix™, something on cable, or a DVD, your loved one can take an opportunity to enjoy a movie. Studies indicate that movies are good for Alzheimer's they often trigger lost memories. Caregiving personnel understand this and encourage all loved ones to enjoy movie entertainment.  Two movies we suggest are:

  • Driving Miss Daisy – Although many seniors may have seen this movie in their younger days, it’s considered a classic worth re-watching.
  • On Golden Pond – Another excellent choice from the early 1980’s with a headlining cast.

Current movies on the big screen may also be worth seeing. Our best home care providers can assist mom or dad with finding movies in the local theaters. Just a side note, some local theaters offer senior matinées with modified sound equipment.
