"We had the most amazing experience with Home Care Assistance.There was so much to navigate logistically during a very emotional time.

While there's a strong correlation between social interaction and good health as we age, it's not always easy to maintain or make new connections. Here are a few places that often specialize in senior activities or host volunteer groups that organize elder-appropriate endeavors: senior centers, YMCAs, JCCs, health clubs, gyms, schools, religious centers (churches, synagogues, mosques, etc.), meetup.com and your local library. Why not take some time to research what is available in your area? Then encourage your senior to enroll in group activities of interest.

Experts estimate that 6 in 10 family caregivers of adults age 50 or over also work outside the home, essentially juggling two jobs. If this is something you can relate to, here are 5 ways to balance the demands of both.

Our proprietary Balanced Care Method touts the benefits of aerobic exercise as being important for good health as we age. Walking is an excellent way to work in some aerobic exercise. Even short walks, when taken regularly, can be very beneficial to one's physical and mental health. Crave more variety? Summer is a great time to fit in more aerobic exercise. Gardening, golfing and swimming are all excellent choices. And if the weather is inclement, light housework is considered aerobic. Want something more fun? Dancing counts too! Happy moving this summer!

Whether your loved one lives across town or hundreds of miles away, at some point, many adult children consider whether their aging parent(s) should move in with them. Having your parent in your home may make it easier to manage care. It can also be more cost effective than other options such as assisted living. If you choose to have your parent live with you, advance planning is key. How accessible is your home environment? How will you divide household costs and chores? How will decisions get made and conflicts resolved? How will care be provided as your parent's needs increase? Advanced planning and strong communication can help make this a successful transition and positive living situation for all involved.

Balance Care Method Basics: Social ties help keep us healthy by making us feel connected, reducing depression and keeping stress in check. It's important for seniors to have stimulating conversations every day if feasible. Daily phone calls and emails are an important part of a routine. And virtual or face-to-face visits with friends and family as often as possible help keep social ties strong. All our caregivers are trained in the Balanced Care Method, which includes initiating stimulating conversations and encouraging your loved one to engage with others whenever possible. For more on the BCM, contact us anytime.
