As important as physical activity is for staying healthy, emotional stability and happiness play a major role in a perceived high quality of life. As your loved one ages, it may become increasingly difficult for them to participate in family activities and you may be too busy to take on yet another responsibility. Thankfully, there is a solution to this problem. With the help of senior caregivers, your loved one can continue to take part in family activities independently and without placing any further burden on their loved ones.
Studies have shown that staying in touch and seeing close loved ones can have an incredible impact on your loved one's emotional and mental wellbeing. As seniors are already prone to depression and feelings of loneliness, staying in touch can be just what the doctor ordered.
According to a recent study, about 15 percent of seniors suffer from depression. This adds up to about 6 million Americans across the country. Thankfully, there are a number of ways to combat depression. One of them is by helping your loved one feel happy, fulfilled and like they still matter and have not been forgotten about.
There are many family activities people of all ages can participate in with help from senior caregivers. Let's take a look at some common and accessible activities the whole family can enjoy.
Making sure your loved one stays engaged will make all the difference in both their and your life. Give us a call to find out more about how senior caregivers can help make that happen.
