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.

Arthritis Care at Home

a-1 downey arthritis

Arthritis can cause so much pain that it interferes with a person’s life. As a caregiver, what can you do to help relief some of that pain? There are many changes you can help implement to decrease the level of discomfort for a loved one or client.

Healthy Lifestyle

Maintaining a healthy weight is very important for someone suffering from arthritis. The excess weight a client or loved one might carry can put extra stress on the joints thus making the deterioration or inflammation worse.  Encourage your loved one to implement a healthy diet and exercise on a regular basis and rest when needed to stimulate the muscle around the joints.

Protecting the Joints

Protecting the joints from further deterioration is important. Modify activities if certain activity hurts the client or loved one’s joints. Refrain from putting pressure on the joints, use healthier and stronger joints to help lift objects or activities. Avoid activities or exercises that can cause inflammation or worsening of the joints.  You can help relief pain by applying heat or cold to the swollen or painful joints.
