Activities for Caregivers and Seniors
Our home care specialists are encouraged to participate in weekly activities with the seniors they care for. As seniors age, it becomes more and more difficult for people to get out for social or physical activities. All clients benefit from this, but it is especially helpful for clients who are anxious, depressed, or suffering from dementia.
Home care specialists have two options suggested by Visiting Angels of Fairfield and Brookfield to help seniors engage with life, both socially and physically. Clients can come to Visiting Angels of Fairfield and Brookfield, and seniors can participate in our Active and Engaged Program which takes place every Thursday or our aides will assist them in putting together an activity bag. Until listed otherwise, all activities will be conducted virtually through videos. To view these videos, click here.
Seniors who engage in social activities and hobbies maintain a healthier lifestyle than seniors who don’t. Elders who participate tend to greatly enjoy the activities and it gives them something positive to look forward to. Being social and participating in activities also stimulates the social and mental abilities of clients suffering from degenerative cognitive disorders which helps them stay healthier for longer. These activities are also important because it allows seniors to meet other seniors and engage in conversations with people near their own age and it can help them relate to the roles they played in their younger years.
These activities don’t only benefit seniors. They are also important events for home care specialists. Activities and events allow caregivers to continue building a relationship with their clients, and they can make caring for clients with degenerative cognitive disorders much easier outside the home. It also makes for a great change of pace, and the caregivers also have an opportunity to enjoy the activities.
