Affordable Caregivers El Cajon Participates in National Gratitude Month - Homecare, Skilled Nursing Can Help

El Cajon Caregiver Agency Publishes guide on How Home Care Can Help Seniors Remain Positive and Grateful. Offers Free Online Needs Assessment to Help Families Understand Senior Care Options.

Firstat Nursing Services, an Affordable Caregiver Agency serving El Cajon supports National Gratitude Month by publishing help guide “How Home Care Can Help Seniors Remain Positive and Grateful.”

Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services says, “November is traditionally a time of thanks, and it is the perfect time for National Gratitude Month. Gratitude helps people relieve their stress so they can focus on the good things in life.

Here are 3 ways home health caregivers can help senior citizens remember the good things they have to be grateful for, and experience the positive effects of gratitude.

Listening and Experiencing the Memories with the Elderly – Home care nurses are focused on their clients and listen to the elderly as they relive the events in their lives. Many family members may not have the time to listen, due to life events, distance or other constraints.

By taking the time just to listen, a home care worker gives their elderly clients the ability to examine the past, so health care nurses can help seniors see the events in a positive light and allow them to feel grateful and happy for a life well-lived.

Home Health Care Nurses Provide a Happy Face to the Senior’s Day – Being in their own home is a major issue for seniors. They need to feel the independence and self-sufficiency of being on their own, but often it may not be safe. A home care worker visiting regularly, or living with the senior, can make sure the elderly person is safe and has a healthy atmosphere to live in, giving them the freedom to be grateful and happy about life.

Health Care Providers Can Help Seniors be Positive – Health care nurses visiting on a regular basis can help seniors remain positive and help them develop skills that are necessary to stay motivated and grateful. Elderly people can begin to feel too tired, and it’s harder to be optimistic and grateful when everything hurts, or it is difficult to move about. A health care provider can help seniors train themselves to focus on the positive, alleviating the mental and physical pain they live with daily.
