Fun Easter Activities to Enjoy with Your Grandchildren

Our twenty-hour hour in-home care services, here at A-1 Home Care, makes it possible for our seniors to spend some quality time with their loved ones on the holidays, including Easter. With our assistance, our caregivers are able to contribute to their routine duties such as kitchen duty from baking, cooking, and cleaning to monitoring medication so our seniors will never forget what time to take their next doze. The holidays can be stress free and you can do so by giving our Downey office  310-657-8780 or our headquarters in Santa Fe Springs 562-929-8400 a call to speak with one of our representatives.

So, sit back and relax because with our caretakers on-call, you can finally spend some one on one time with the grandchildren, working on different activities such as:

  • Painting, stuffing, and hiding eggs for the Easter Egg hunt.
  • “Time Machine” — a game where each individual writes down a note to themselves, advice that they will return to the following year. So, be sure to keep this note safe and secured in a plastic egg.
  • “Ray of Light” — break off a piece of a glow stick and place each of the parts into a plastic egg for a night game of the Easter Egg Hunt.
  • Pin the Cottontail on the Bunny — just like pin the tail on the donkey.
  • Balancing Egg — if you are up to it, enjoy a relay race of balancing an egg on a spoon with a partner, just as long as both of you do not drop the egg.

Caregivers in Downey Help Their Clients Find Motivation to Exercise

dreamstime_355414.jpgFinding the motivation to exercise can be difficult for any age group. It is universally recognized that exercising with a companion increases motivation and stamina. As our elders begin to age, it becomes increasingly difficult to convince them to go for walks and many times we may feel frightened to allow them to go alone. Moreover, we all live busy lifestyles and may not have the time to spend with our loved ones.
