Oftentimes, aging goes hand-in-hand with physical challenges. Many seniors experience difficulty walking, arthritis, loss of vision and more. But just because your senior loved one is not as spry as they used to be does not mean they can’t experience some form of vacation, trip or activity this summer! At Champion Home Health Care we pride ourselves on excellent at-home senior care, and we also strive to inform our readers on how to keep their elderly loved ones healthy and happy. Based on the level of care your senior requires, read ahead for ideas on how to help them make the most of their summer!
For seniors requiring minimal care who are more on the adventurous side, a relaxing cruise could be the perfect summertime vacation. If they have limited mobility this shouldn’t be a problem, as most cruise lines have plenty of comfortable accommodations for those with disabilities or limited mobility. Ramps, bedrails, shower stools and more are available. These amenities can help you enjoy a cruise to the Bahamas with your senior loved one, and many cruise lines conveniently launch right out of Port Canaveral!
If a cruise is not feasible or appealing, plan a trip closer to home. Perhaps a play at the King Center in Melbourne, FL would be the perfect treat for your senior, or plan a beach day if they’re up for it! Just make sure to pack an umbrella, water, sunscreen and any medications they might need. For seniors with extensive needs, settling around the TV to watch their favorite movie or home video could be the perfect activity to brighten their day.
At Champion Home Health Care of Brevard, we know that every senior is different and requires a different level of care. That’s why we have a variety of home health care service options ranging from companionship and light housekeeping to bathing, monitoring medications, and even 24-hour care. We want our patients to feel safe and happy in the comfort of their own homes. Our qualified caregivers will be happy to help you and your senior loved one in any way we can.
