What's New With Attending Home Care January 2024

Happy January!

We hope you had a wonderful holiday season, but now we are looking forward to 2024!

As we move into the new year, here at Attending Home Care, we believe it’s a great time for reflection, renewal, and trying something new. We invite you to embrace new activities that can get you out of your comfort zone, and help you discover a new passion this year.

To help you break in the new year, we have compiled some fun and engaging activities that you can try! These activities involve going out and trying new things, and also activities you can enjoy from your own home:

  • Indoor Exercise Classes: Many community centers and gyms offer low-impact exercise classes suitable for seniors. These may include yoga, tai chi, or water aerobics. Choose a class that most interests you, but remember to try something new! You never know what you’ll enjoy until you do it.
  • Art and Craft Workshops: Joining an art or craft class can be a creative and enjoyable way to spend time. It’s important to keep your mind and body active during winter months, so whether it's painting, pottery, or knitting, these activities can be both relaxing and fulfilling.
  • Technology Classes: If unfamiliar with technology, consider taking classes to learn how to use smartphones, tablets, or computers. This can help stay connected with family and friends. Not to mention, these classes can be taken online so you can stay comfortable in your own home!
  • Book Clubs: Join or start a book club. Select books with winter themes to fit the season or explore a variety of genres. Set a goal for how many books you and your club want to read for the year. Discussing literature with others can be intellectually stimulating and socially engaging.

Attending Home Care is here to support you and your loved ones throughout the new year! We encourage you to share pictures of your new activities with us, and what your goals are for 2024. We'd love to see your smiles and the special moments you create!

Warmest Regards,

The Attending Home Care Team

Before I discovered Attending Home Care, I would go without sleep for days, and constantly worried that I wasn't able to be fully present and give her the care she needed because so much depended on me.

How We Can Help

Pediatric Care

Having a child with a chronic health condition is not only a huge responsibility—it also leaves many parents stressed, exhausted, and isolated.

Hospitals can be scary places for children, but nothing soothes them like their own bed and home. From newborns to teens, and all ages in between—whether your child needs care for weeks or years, our dedicated certified home health aides (HHAs) and registered nurses can give them the support and love they need to thrive.

At Attending, we are not just caregivers. We're advocates, resources, and partners in your child's care, dedicated to making sure that your child has what they need to reach their full potential and thrive in the comfort of home.

Best of all? It only takes 3 simple steps to get started.
