Boosting Immunity with the Help of In-Home Senior Caregivers from Visiting Angels Loveland

Learn how our senior caregivers are helping seniors in Loveland, Fort Collins, Greeley, Windsor and surrounding areas in Colorado stay safe by encouraging them to incorporate healthy habits into their everyday routine

As confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), aging adults and those with various chronic conditions are at a higher risk of developing medical complications from the novel coronavirus.

Now more than ever, it is of vital importance that we help seniors in our community to stay healthy and safe during self-isolation by taking all necessary steps to strengthen their immunity. At Visiting Angels Loveland, we’re committed to helping seniors throughout Colorado’s Northern Front Range stay safe during this difficult time. Our senior caregivers are encouraging clients to incorporate simple changes to their everyday routine that can help them stay healthy and boost their immune system. When you choose Visiting Angels Loveland as your partner in home care, you can have peace of mind that your loved one is in safe hands.

The Importance of Maintaining a Healthy Routine for Seniors in Loveland and Surrounding Areas

By adhering to a healthy at-home routine, your loved one can improve their overall health. The routine itself does not have to be complicated. You can encourage your mom or dad to simply focus on:

  • Getting a good night’s sleep – While some seniors can develop different sleep patterns in their golden years, the majority of older adults need around 7 to 9 hours of uninterrupted sleep, just like younger adults. Our senior caregivers can help your loved one stick to a healthy nighttime regimen and prepare for bed.
  • Eating healthy – By eating a well-balanced diet, your loved one can keep their immune system strong. At Visiting Angels Loveland, our senior caregivers can go grocery shopping and prepare nutritious meals for your parent.
  • Exercising regularly – Right now, staying physically active is especially important for seniors as they need to spend most of their time at home. Home care experts from Visiting Angels Loveland can assist Mom or Dad with exercises suitable for a home setting. This can include anything from stretching and low-impact weightlifting to floor exercises.
  • Keeping tabs on medication and fluid intake – If needed, our expert senior caregivers can offer medication reminders and make sure your loved one drinks sufficient amounts of water to stay well-hydrated.
  • Handwashing – To avoid the risk of COVID-19, the CDC recommends washing hands frequently, especially after nose blowing, coughing, or sneezing.

Improve Health by Reducing Stress

As the pandemic progresses, more and more people are feeling anxious and stressed. Needless to say, this constant buildup of stress can have negative effects on the overall health of people, seniors in particular.

Here is how your loved one can reduce their stress levels:

  • Connecting with loved ones through Skype, FaceTime or social media
  • Taking an occasional break from the news about the pandemic
  • Taking better care of their body through a senior-friendly exercise regimen and healthy diet
  • Focusing on favorite activities and relaxing as much as possible

Should your loved one happen to feel overwhelmed at times, plenty of resources are available for those in need of support, advice or guidance. For example, senior loved ones can opt to reach out to a therapist and participate in online sessions or they can get in touch with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA’s) Disaster Distress Helpline at 1-800-985-5990 or text TalkWithUs to 66746.
