Most importantly, during holiday gatherings, slow down and be sure to include elderly relatives in family traditions. Ask them how they would like to celebrate the festive time together and consider assigning someone to accompany the senior throughout the day to ensure comfort. After the holidays, if you’ve determined that additional care might be necessary for your loved ones, contact a home care agency such as Continuum. Our professional caregivers can assist with services such as meal preparation, personal care, transportation and specialized dementia care, whether the needs are daily, weekly, temporary or long-term. To help determine if in-home care is appropriate for your situation, or for tips on how to talk to a loved one about accepting in-home care assistance, contact Continuum at (314) 863-9912.
