Caregivers Del Mar, Senior Homecare Agency Participates in National Optimism Month

Del Mar Senior Home Health Caregiver Agency Publishes guide on How to Help Senior Citizens Live Better with Optimism. Offers Free Online Needs Assessment to Help Families Understand Senior Care Options.

Firstat Nursing Services, a Del Mar Caregivers In-Home Care Agency supports National Optimism Month by sharing tips on “How to Help Senior Citizens Live Better with Optimism.”

“Aging is difficult, and many senior citizens suffer from depression and anxiety due to the stresses of dealing with health issues, loneliness and stress,” says Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services.

Having an in-home care professional to keep up with simple daily tasks, medical needs and physical care of a loved one helps remove the worry from family members, but it can also do a great deal to give the senior citizen a sense of well-being and a more optimistic attitude toward life.

Here are a few ways an in-home caregiver can help seniors remain optimistic.

Health Care Professionals Help Seniors Get Out and Safely Experience Fresh Air and Sunshine
One of the biggest causes for depression in elderly individuals is the problem of getting outside of the home. Living in their own home is a great emotional boost for the elderly, but it comes with its own set of challenges, and dangers.

A health care professional will make it safe for the senior to live in the comfort of the home they love, where all of their memories are, and where they are happy. They can also make it possible for the senior citizens to get outdoors for moderate exercise, or just to sit in the fresh air and sunshine, so they can soak up the vitamin D that is important for everyone in feeling good and maintaining their optimistic outlook.

Having a Professional Nursing Assistant Gives Elderly Clients a Sympathetic Ear to Listen and Enjoy Their Life’s Experiences
The feeling of loneliness is only a part of the reason so many seniors become depressed. As they age, and their friends and peers pass away, they feel like no one is around to talk to them, listen to them, or understand what they have been through.

Even younger family members, no matter how much they love them, often don’t have the time to simply sit and listen to the stories from the past that make an elderly person feel connected to their own lives. An in-home care provider can listen to the stories of the past, appreciate all of the good things that happened, and all of the struggles that the senior has dealt with successfully and can be proud of.
