There is nothing worse for any person than to get the flu or some sort of new-fangled virus. It is so much worse if you are a senior with a cane, walker or wheelchair. It is hard to get up and keep running to the bathroom – and harder yet to get there on time.
In order to protect the seniors in your life from the throes of sickness, make certain that you wash your hands, spray Lysol around the house and clean it up after another family member gets ills, and keep pumping vitamins and foods filled with vitamins and iron to them. For Heaven’s sake, it is best to give them as little as possible to have to deal with. It is hard enough getting older!
If you are a caretaker and have come into contact with others who have been sick (albeit children, people from your church community or even at the grocery store checkout counter, you need to do whatever is possible to protect yourself from getting sick, too. For your own good, follow the advice above. You should also get plenty of rest to ensure that you can keep going even when others are down for the count.
Keep in mind that With Age Comes Respect and take care of those close to you when you can!
