Resources for Working Caregivers

Resources for Working Caregivers: If you’re a caregiver who needs to keep their job during the day, these services can help: adult day care centers, adult day health care centers, respite programs, sitter programs, home health service, or your local Alzheimer’s association. Contact Senior Transitions if you need help caring for your aging parent or grandparent by calling (850) 894-6720.

Reality Shifts

Reality Shifts: Telling the difference between what is real or not becomes increasingly difficult as dementia progresses. Limiting TV time and incorporating activities that make them aware of their surroundings can help with this. Contact Senior Transitions if you need help caring for your aging parent or grandparent by calling (850) 894-6720.

Keeping Seniors Safe and Healthy Through the Holidays

With COVID-19 cases still rising throughout the United States, many of the families I work with are concerned about how to keep their loved ones safe and healthy. On the other hand, many are reaching their limits with lockdowns and quarantines, especially with the holidays coming up. Senior Transitions helps seniors make the best of these trying circumstances and ease their isolation.

Ensuring Mealtimes

Ensuring Mealtimes: To ensure your loved one is getting enough to eat, you may need to start going on shopping trips with them or offering to help cook meals for the week in case they forget. You will also want to find reasons to check for expired food since it may otherwise go unnoticed. Contact Senior Transitions if you need help caring for your aging parent or grandparent by calling (850) 894-6720.

Taking the Keys

Taking the Keys: If your loved one is reluctant to give up driving, ask a trusted doctor to talk with them. Have the doctor write out, “Do Not Drive” on a prescription pad so you can pull out the note when a reminder is needed. Contact Senior Transitions if you need help caring for your aging parent or grandparent by calling (850) 894-6720.
