Elderly Care: Are you setting your elderly loved one up with home care providers?
Are they a little uneasy about receiving extra help from people they don’t really know? If this is the case, there are some things that you can do to help your elderly loved one build healthier bonds with their senior elderly care providers.
Stay with Them
If your elderly loved one is a bit on edge about having home care providers come into their home, it may be best if you stay with them the first few times. When your elderly loved one realizes the senior care providers are there to help and support them, they may not need you to stick around when the providers are there anymore.
Games and Activities
Does your elderly loved one like to play board games? Maybe, they enjoy doing art or other activities at home or in the community. If your elderly loved one is worried the senior home care providers won’t be supportive in their activities, let them know these providers are experienced and trained in being there for the elderly. They want your elderly loved one to be happy. In fact, they will likely even participate in the games with your loved one. Once your elderly loved one sees that the elderly care providers are there to benefit them and make them happier, they will likely feel less stressed about the entire situation.
Is your elderly loved one not feeling great about having elder care providers? If so, it may be a good idea to have yourself, your elderly loved one, and the senior home care providers sit together and have some light conversations. For example, your elderly loved one can talk about stories from their past, their favorite recipes, or talk about their favorite television shows. Once your elderly loved one gets to know the senior care providers and the providers get to know your elderly loved one a bit more, hopefully, that will help to lighten things up.
Elderly Care: Conclusion
These are some of the ways that you can help your elderly loved one to build healthier bonds with their home care providers. Unfortunately, there are some senior care providers who don’t get along with the providers that come to their homes. However, if you can do these things with your elderly loved ones and their elder care providers, hopefully, it will help them to connect better.
