You don’t want your joyous holiday celebration being ruined by an unexpected illness or injury. As a family caregiver, this can be particularly important. Fortunately, simple choices and habits can help to prevent issues such as illness, foodborne infection, injuries, and other problems so you can enjoy your time together.
Try these simple tips for a healthier and safer Thanksgiving holiday:
Getting help can be key to a successful and enjoyable Thanksgiving.
Now that you are a family caregiver for an elderly adult, you are managing all of your usual needs for the holiday season, while also fulfilling your senior’s care needs as well.
Reaching out to a home care specialist can make a tremendous difference. An in-home senior care services provider can be with your parent to provide a highly personalized set of services tailored specifically to their needs.
These services can help your parent to manage their challenges and limitations, protect their health and well-being, and enjoy better emotional health and more independence throughout the season and beyond. As a family caregiver, knowing your senior has this assistance can relieve your stress and will allow you to focus on other aspects of the holiday season with more confidence and less worry.
