5 Tips on Cheering Up Our Grandparents and Parents

5 Tips on Cheering Up Our Grandparents and Parents

At New Horizons Home Healthcare, we care about our clients’ health at home. It gives us ease and glee when we see the happiness in their eyes because of the services we passionately carry out.

When it comes to providing home care services in Marion, Indiana, we hope for nothing but overall quality in comfort and recovery. At home, it is important that the people we care for are also well-taken care of, with their physical health, their mentality, and their emotional wellness.

For our grandmothers and grandfathers, mothers and fathers, it is love that gives us the motivation to assure their happiness and comfort. If our elderly loved ones do come to a low point, here are five tips on how we can cheer up our grandparents:

  1. Spend time with them.

    Include yourself in things they love doing on a daily basis. Spend a little gardening time with your grandmother. Learn stuff about construction with grandfather. Talk to your father about the lessons he’s learned. Ask mother how to do certain things, things that you know only she knows. You do not have to skip school or cancel a meeting at work to spend time with them. Spend them with them when the weight of the world is too much. Find refuge in their presence.

  2. Buy them their favorite healthy treats!

    We all have our share of unhealthy favorites, but there are also healthy treats we love. Get them a little and take it to them just to make their day. Always make sure they are healthy but do not take away the fun of having the treats.

  3. Take them out on a family date.

    There’s always this magical feeling when you’re surrounded by the people you love out on a date. Things are less forced, the love is definitely present and the peace of being together is irreplaceable. As magical as you feel, think about our elders. Nothing can bring them more joy than witnessing the love and the lives they have achieved and worked so hard to sustain.

  4. Wander and reminisce about the past with them.

    Give them the chance to take a trip down memory lane, and go with them. Our elderly have a way of comforting themselves by talking about the life they have lived in the past. It’s like transporting into another time. Ask them questions, provoke their inner-storyteller and listen. Wander with their words and memories.

  5. And, lastly, love them.

    You do not need to spend too much to prove this. You do not need to execute a grand gesture to do this. Just be there when they look for you. Just listen when they talk. Give them a hand when they need help. Hold their hand and accompany them when they cross the street or when they go to the groceries. Remind them of their medications. Always prepare drinking water beside their bedside table. Tell them you love them. Tell them good morning. Thank them for a life filled with love and strength.

Sometimes, the miracle we are all rooting for is love – to love and be loved back. If your senior loved one needs the assistance of a home health aide in Indiana, contact us at New Horizons Home Healthcare.
