Improving Your Loved One’s Quality Of Life With Interactive Caregiving
When providing care for a senior family member, activities such as meal preparation, housekeeping, running errands, medication reminders, mobility assistance, and help with personal hygiene may take up most of your time. Although all these routine tasks are important for maintaining your loved one’s independent lifestyle, it takes more to allow them to stay vital and healthy for longer.
It goes without saying that people are happier and healthier when they are active, connected with others, and feel they can still contribute. If you are looking after a senior family member, you need to focus on all aspects of their personality to be able to provide the best possible care. This “whole person” approach to caregiving is something we at Comfort Keepers call Interactive Caregiving.
At Comfort Keepers, we understand that older adults prefer to remain living independently and comfortably in their home for as long as possible. Our goal is to help them achieve this through our special brand of caregiving – Interactive Caregiving. The main idea behind this holistic approach is to promote overall well-being and enrich our client’s lives through a number of stimulating physical, mental, and social activities.
You can learn from the Comfort Keepers experience and apply the Interactive Caregiving approach to your unique caregiver-care recipient situation. This will certainly help your senior parent of relative lead a healthier, happier life and feel cherished and valued. Nurturing these feelings promotes independence in your senior loved one and it can allow them to develop a more positive outlook on life and maintain a sense of purpose. When older adults are physically and mentally engaged, they can enjoy better health and boost cognitive functions.
As a family caregiver, you’ll want to encourage your loved one to maintain their everyday routine. For example, joining them for daily walks in the nearby park can help your parent or relative keep their muscles and bones strong. Playing board games together, solving cross-puzzles or just reminiscing happy times can boost their mood and promote mental and cognitive health. What’s more, these kinds of activities can also help create a stronger bond between you and your senior loved one.
