Back in the spring, you may have been able to put on a brave face and gear down for a month–or two–or three–of social restrictions. But now, in an autumn where mask wearing and social distancing is still part of the fabric of life,
If you’re the sort of person who thrives in social situations, gratitude may not be top of mind after eight months of social distancing. Nonetheless, if you happen to live in Sunshine Retirement Living, you may have more to be thankful than you realize.
If you love someone with dementia who needs some extra care, you may be on a mission to find them the highest quality support possible.
Holiday traditions hold a special place in our hearts. Whether we have been doing them since we were children, or if we just started a new one last year, traditions are something many of us look forward to as the holiday season makes its debut. And we believe there is always room for more! Although the holidays this year might look different due to social distancing guidelines put in place to keep us safe, we believe that this year can still be your best holiday season yet.
We all have certain people in our lives who are very near and dear to our hearts. As we head into the season of giving and the Thanksgiving holiday, we wanted to share some creative ways that you can show your gratitude for these folks in ways that are both safe and meaningful.
When trying to show gratitude, or thankfulness, for someone, the best advice we have to give is to be genuine in your pursuit. Take the time to decide what would mean the most to them, and how they would receive the message that you care. The team at Stone Valley Assisted Living and Memory Care in Reno, Nevada has put together a list of ways they like to show gratitude to give you some ideas.
It is possible that both the flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both spread this fall and winter season. We are all aware of ways to protect ourselves from COVID-19, such as wearing a mask, washing our hands, and maintaining a social distance of six feet or more from peers outside of our households. All of these are also good measures to prevent the flu, but there is one even better: the flu shot.
The 2020 holiday season is sneaking up on us, and with how 2020 has been thus far, we wouldn’t be surprised if the unprecedented times continue. With the social distancing guidelines still in place to keep us and our loved ones safe, we know that this upcoming holiday season may already be causing some added stress to your family, and we want to help alleviate it.
After eight months of taking precautions against catching COVID-19, you probably don’t want to hear about yet another infectious illness you need to guard against. Nevertheless, now that the weather is getting colder
During normal times, the fall season usually means heading to a pumpkin patch to get lost in a corn maze, walking the streets of a fall festival, visiting a fall play, or some form of gathering in other crowded spaces that do not follow the current social distancing rules set in place to protect us. But we are committed to making sure you still have a fun (and safe!) autumn this year!
There is a chill in the air, the leaves are beginning to change, and you may have noticed that the days are starting to feel shorter. Suddenly, you are seeing Halloween decorations everywhere, and even Thanksgiving and Christmas ones too (don’t they seem to come out earlier every year?). This can only mean one thing: fall has arrived.
Have you decided that it is time to move your loved one into an assisted living community? Are you worried about the change in weather this fall making it more difficult for you to move? Moving can be daunting for some of us, especially if we have lived in our homes for a very long time and have accumulated a lot of things through the years. Also, for some, moving could also mean downsizing, and the thought of having to part with things could be a little upsetting.
As the weather begins to cool down, many people start getting excited about the pumpkin spice lattes, fall leaves, and bringing out all their favorite fall and winter outfits from the bottom of their closets. For people with dementia or Alzheimer’s, however, the cooler weather also means that caregivers need to monitor their temperature and comfort a little more closely.
Those with memory challenges may not recognize that they are cold, may not feel cold, or may not be able to express that they are cold, so as their caregivers, it is up to those around them to proactively address this issue before it arises. The expert team at Marshall Pines in Evans, Georgia shares several tips to assist caregivers with monitoring temperature changes for their loved ones experiencing memory challenges.
Summer is the season for family vacations. Many people have great memories of packing their suitcases and hopping into the car or onto a plane Read More
