Quality of Life and Your Senior

There’s a lot that goes into maintaining quality of life for your senior. Her health and other variables may try to throw wrenches into the works.

Nutrition and Exercise

Your senior’s nutrition makes a huge impact on her quality of life. That’s fuel for her body, so it needs to be the best possible fuel that she can get. She also needs a certain amount of exercise in order to keep her body as strong as possible. Your senior’s doctor can help you to determine what foods are best for her and what types of exercise are right. A balance between the two is important.

 

Maintaining Her Health

Even with the right nutritional and exercise plans, your senior may have chronic health issues that she needs to manage. Having a high quality of life means that she’s paying attention to these health issues and doing what she can in order to stay as healthy as possible. Her doctor can help her to outline a plan for doing this properly.

 

Getting Quality Sleep

Sleep is another big part of the quality of life equation. If your senior isn’t getting enough quality sleep, she’s going to feel sluggish and might not have the energy she needs during the rest of her day. Good sleep hygiene is the first step in helping your senior to sleep well. That means she needs to go to bed and wake up around the same times each day in order to get onto a good schedule.

 

Social Supports

Your senior’s support system is made up of you and of other people who care about her. All of these various friends and family members help her to feel less isolated and alone. If she’s not spending time around these people, though, your senior may feel more depressed or anxious than she has to feel.

 

Continuing to Feel Independent

Your senior may need help throughout the day, both from you and from other people, but she can still feel independent. Having help from home care providers doesn’t mean that she can’t do things. It just means that their help keeps her safe and ensures that she has what she needs. All of that can help her to maintain a higher quality of life overall.

As your senior’s caregiver, a lot of your time is spent doing whatever you can to make sure that she’s got the best quality of life possible. This can mean making lots of small changes here and there to tweak her lifestyle in the best ways you can.

Alan and Stephanie Jones, Owners

December Rose Senior Care is a local in-home care agency owned and operated by Alan and Stephanie Jones in Highland, Utah. While both Alan and Stephanie bring professional and practical experience to their business, it has been the fulfilling and educational aspects of assisting their parents through the aging process as well as raising their five children that encouraged them to start a personal care agency. In particular it was the humbling experience of caring for a special needs son and moving a parent from in-home care to assisted living that helped them realize there are many families who are caring for loved ones that need help. Their desire is to combine these experiences with over twenty years of medical sales and marketing, eleven years working with senior and elder populations among our Veterans and Native Americans, serving on multiple school boards and local legislative roles, to develop in-home care that exceeds expectations and honors seniors as the foundation of this country.
In their spare time, Alan and Stephanie are all about family and enjoy So. California beach vacations, watching their children’s sporting events, reading, participating in church and community activities, watching favorite shows together, participating in Boy Scouts, running and yoga.
