Much planning goes into being a senior

For most of us, October brings the notion of fall and winter yet to come. For senior citizens, however, October may bring with it the anticipation of holidays once enjoyed but now just feel like a strain.

Time seems to pick up pace as we age. It takes us longer to plan and do things. The notion that there are less than 85 days until Christmas means that time is ticking and they feel pressured to get rolling on the holiday stuff.

The more these elders worry, the less productive they become and the more they worry. It is a round robin of worry. It is the caretaker’s job to try to deviate from any negative connotations that this stress may conjure up in our clients.

What we have to do is concentrate on the positive. Make lists and try to stick with this type of planning. The more organized you are, the more secure your clients will feel. It is all in proving one more time that With Age Comes Respect.

The more planning you do up front, the happier and healthier of mind, body and spirit that your clients will be. Won’t it be so exciting to see their happy, shining faces during the holiday season knowing that you helped to make that happiness possible?
