Springtime and summertime are a wonderful time to plant and watch flowers, veggies or fruit blossom and grow. Whether your client is housebound or can go into their garden, you can assist them and bring life to their space!
House plants are easy to care for and can brighten up any room. Pruning and watering are easy. With a new spray bottle from the dollar store, you and your client can water the plants and watch them grow day to day. This productive activity can add so much life to the plants, as well as your client.
Gardening outside is a great pastime, but safety should be your concern. Make sure your client isn’t in direct sunlight and it’s not oppressively hot. 84 degrees with low humidity is an ideal temperature for seniors. Early morning or after suppertime is a great time to check on the plants. Planting in pots or raised flower beds outdoors is the best opportunity for your client to feel involved and able! Herb gardens grow quickly and do not need much space. Enjoy the possibilities!
Home to Stay Senior Care Solutions is owned and operated by the Dubler and Skole Families and was started because of experiences they had with their own Families. In one situation Mom was living alone and had a fall. It was not until this fall that the family realized they were unprepared.
When it was time for their Mom to come home, she needed companion and personal care to assist her and prevent another accident. Like most people in this situation, they were confused and did not know where to go for help. It was this life-changing experience that lead to starting a home care company that is focused on enabling those who wish to stay at home and age in place.
