Silverado At Home Encourages Families to Take Part in Summertime Fun
By: Joie Fong, Silverado
We all have a routine – whether it’s swinging by the same coffee shop every morning, walking the dog or, yes, making that trip to the gym. A consistent routine and interaction with others often plays an important role in maximizing quality of life.
The Silverado At Home team encourages families to provide that same sense of interaction and routine with their loved ones to promote daily life activities.
When people experience a decline in health, they often begin to withdraw from their normal routines and social activities. However, studies have shown correlations between social disengagement and fulfillment in life. It’s crucial that we encourage our loved ones to remain active and engaged in life, to the fullest extent possible.
Concerts, picnics and fairs are popular during summer months, and they can provide an opportunity for loved ones to enjoy music, family entertainment and interactions with people of all ages. Whether it’s a concert in the park or walking the dog, what’s important is that your loved one remains active and engaged with the world around them.
And if you need help, Silverado is here for you. Our highly-skilled personal attendants are trained to encourage positive engagement. They often accompany clients to museums, sporting events, shopping trips and other activities. The outings are not only fun and therapeutic, but they enable loved ones to remain active and, in turn, enrich their quality of life.
