Remember summer vacation when we would travel back to our roots? Back to our grandparents’ place where every tantrum turned into a smile and every slump caused a hug. The love, care and affection he showered on us was worth every tear when it was time to go home. What did you think of the long after-school calls with your grandparents when you wanted to share the whole day with them? Today is a tribute to all the grandparents who made our childhood carefree and memorable.
This is our opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate them. But they also care about their well being and health, just as they did about us. So, if you live far away, how can you take care of their mental and physical health?
As we know, old age is known as second childhood, where some similarities can develop in a child and an adult person. While dependence may be one of them, another undeniable symptom of being alone can be an eagerness to talk. So, give them a call and share your day just like you used to in your childhood. Listen to the same old stories they love to tell and gather some wisdom that will continue to inspire you. You can also make plans to visit them or take them home. It will surely put a smile on their face.
You know it is difficult to keep pace with this fast paced world. When everything is constantly changing, it becomes challenging for them to manage. Give them the help they need and help them figure out some of the tasks you can accomplish easily or with just a click of a button. In the meantime you are spending time and encouraging them to learn about technology that will give them access.
support healthy eating
As conscious people, we are aware of the health and benefits of clean eating. Although we firmly believe that our grandparents are the biggest advocates of this saying, we think a little guidance can help. They certainly know how to eat healthy, but the diet they are following will make a significant difference in how to get the maximum health benefits. The professional help of a nutritionist will boost their health in the long run.
plan regular health checkups
We certainly know how to maintain a healthy lifestyle, but forget that only regular health check-ups can ensure our well-being. As senior citizens, your grandparents need proper care and care. Along with this, regular check-up with the doctor is necessary. These days, senior citizens can avail the facility to schedule health check-ups at home and keep an eye on their health.
make friends with technology
If you’re trying to care for your grandparents but share a long-distance relationship with them, technology can prove to be a boon. Cameras, motion sensors and smart home appliances are your best friends. It helps them to complete their daily tasks and also informs you about their well being. It also provides them with a sense of security. You can also gift them fitness watches which keep track of their physical health status, alerting them in case of any irregularities.
