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.

hospice care orange county a-1 home careGobble, gobble!  Don’t get a heart attack after feasting on that big turkey this Thanksgiving holiday!  Over-indulgence on high-fat gravy sauce, butter, and other delicious fatty foods can cause heart burn and heart attack.  The hospital is the last place where you want to end up during the holidays.  A-1 Home Care in Downey will send a caregiver your way to accompany you or your loved one on one of these family excursions and monitor your food intake.  If you are hosting a family dinner and your elderly loved one is on a special diet, A-1 Home Care’s home health aide can take care of the meal planning on this day while you take care of the rest of the family.

Thanksgiving Tips for Seniors

A caregiver or companion can be a cheerful addition to your elderly loved one’s holiday if he or she does not have any family members nearby.  A-1 Home Care in Downey can be your extended family if for any reason you are not able to spend time with your elderly loved one.  Our home health aide will prepare a nutritious, low-calorie, low-fat Thanksgiving meal for your elderly loved one and his or her friends, or they can simply enjoy a meal together.  The caregiver can do a calorie count and be mindful of your loved one’s health.  In the morning, noon or night, our certified nurse aide will also monitor medication intake to ensure that your parent or grandparent is taking meds in a timely manner.  Our caregivers can also manage flu symptoms or ease depression during the seasonal blues.  Stay healthy, stay connected, and stay ahead of the game.
