As the sun shines brightly and the summer breeze fills the air, we hope this article finds you in high spirits. With the warm days ahead, let's explore ways to make this summer joyful and safe for everyone in the family.
Summer brings its own set of challenges when it comes to staying healthy and cool. Here are some essential tips for beating the heat:
Stay hydrated: Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day, even if you don't feel thirsty, and be sure to encourage your loved ones to do the same. Dehydration is a common risk during hot weather, so keeping a water bottle handy and sipping fluids regularly is crucial.
Seek shade and stay cool: Spend time in shaded areas or air-conditioned spaces during the hottest parts of the day. This helps prevent overheating and reduces the risk of heat-related illnesses.
Dress appropriately: Light-colored, loose-fitting clothing made of breathable fabrics like cotton can help you stay comfortable and cool in the summer heat. Don't forget to protect your skin with sunscreen and a wide-brimmed hat if venturing outdoors.
Enjoy refreshing foods: Incorporate hydrating foods into your diet, such as watermelon, cucumbers, and cantaloupe. These foods are not only delicious but also help in maintaining proper hydration levels.
While outdoor activities may not be suitable for everyone, there are still plenty of ways for you to stay engaged and entertained during the summer months. Here are some ideas to inspire meaningful experiences:
Summer-themed arts and crafts: Unleash your creativity with summer-inspired crafts. Whether it's painting seashells, creating sun catchers, or making flower arrangements, these activities provide a chance for self-expression and can bring joy.
Indoor gardening: Create a small indoor garden with low-maintenance plants or herbs such as basil or some succulents. Gardening has therapeutic benefits and can bring a sense of accomplishment as you watch your plants flourish.
Virtual book clubs: Organize a virtual book club where you can connect with friends or family members to discuss your favorite books. Reading provides mental stimulation, enhances memory, and can be an excellent source of entertainment.
Mindful meditation: Explore mindfulness and meditation techniques to promote relaxation and reduce stress. There are numerous online resources and apps available that offer guided meditation sessions tailored to different needs and experience levels.
Wishing you a summer filled with an abundance of well-being, self-care, and countless memorable moments to cherish. May this season bring you the warmth of good health, allowing you to embrace life's blessings and savor the beauty that surrounds you. As you bask in the sunshine and enjoy the gentle breeze, take time to nurture your body, mind, and spirit.
The Attending Home Care Team
At Attending Home Care, we understand the importance of assisting with activities to promote happiness but we’re also big proponents of keeping you informed about industry updates to help you make better decisions about your care. This month, there’s been some big news in the world of Alzheimer’s disease treatment research!
The American Geriatrics Society (AGS) supports a decision by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to require real-world data on monoclonal antibodies (man-made antibodies that act like the antibodies naturally found your immune system). AGS emphasizes the need for clear clinical benefits and diverse study populations to fill in some gaps in their knowledge about the efficacy of these antibodies.
Learn more about this groundbreaking decision and the concerns raised by AGS. Read the full article below to understand the importance of collecting data through a mandatory registry and ensuring access to effective treatments for Alzheimer's patients.
We’re honored to have Joane working as an aide as Attending Home Care.
Joane is a shining example of how an aide can save people’s lives. Joane takes care of each client so meticulously and lovingly so that the families of the clients feel at ease knowing their loved one is wholely taken care of.
Joane learns about the culture of the client she is working with so that she can sing familiar tunes to the client. She loves using phrases in the client's mother tongue so that they feel instantly at ease around her. Joane’s smile is so contagious that when she is around, her clients smile too.
The whole family can relax and know the client is safe and doing well when Joane is in the house. She brightens the day of all those around her.
We’re privileged that Joane’s son has also joined the team at Attending Home Care too and is an aide while he attends nursing school in his off-time.
Joane clearly instills love, happiness, and a tremendous work ethic towards her colleagues and family alike.
Thank you Joane for representing Attending Home Care so well. It’s our honor to work with you!
