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.

Life is a roller coaster. It has its many ups, and then it has many downs. It can, sometimes, seem appropriate to say that many events that are occur are painful; although, they are unexpected, therefore, out of our control. That is something we at A-1 Home Care try to our best to let you know — when there is bad, we want you to see the good. Our positive and strong-willed in-home AND 24-hour service caregivers  in Downey want you to know that everything will be okay.

In life, as we grow, it almost seems that our number of problems do too. A-1 Home care caregivers are here to help you reduce any stressors in your life, whether it may be a physical, mental, or financial matter. Some ways to cope with your stress can vary per individual, however, most find this list helpful in their every day life:

  • Read — whether you do so quietly or aloud to  yourself solo or with others, pick up that book you have always wanted to try out or finish or something inspirational to start your day off.
  • Pray
  • Play with a pet
  • Change of scenery — sometimes, getting out of our norm “daily routine” will be a real eye opener on how it is needed.
  • Exercise
  • Laugh — they say laughter is the best medicine and it can be.

Here, at A-1 Home Care we strive to connect with you. It is important for someone to understand what you want. Even if that is sharing a laugh with someone.

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.
