October 24th: Time to Make a Difference


Senior Care in Simpsonville SC

It doesn’t take much to become a source of inspiration and change in another person’s life. So often we become fascinated with the intricacies of our own complex lifestyles that we begin to Senior-Care-Simpsonville-SC overlook the very basic needs that we could so easily supply to another person. Sometimes, those needs don’t have so much to do with food, water or housing as they do with company, entertainment and moral support. This is often the case when it comes to providing optimal senior care. Sometimes, it isn’t that you aren’t meeting those basic needs for your loved ones, but that in the hubbub of everyday burdens it becomes easy to overlook the little things we can do for another individual simply to bring a smile to their face.

That is the goal of Make a Difference Day. October 24th is dedicated to finding a small way that you can go above and beyond for someone in your life, whether that includes your loved ones, your neighbors, or other members of your community.

Ways to Make a Difference: One Day at a Time

Providing elder care isn’t always a stress-free experience, so it comes as no question as to why so many caregivers focus on the basic tasks—ensuring medical care, providing food, offering housing assistance. But those caregivers that do go above and beyond make a huge difference. That is because the caregivers are providing something for the senior to care about; a reason to smile and think about later on.

On October 24th, see what you can do to make a difference. There are many ways that you can give this a try. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Talk about favorite recipes when going food shopping, and work in the kitchen together to prepare a meal.
  • Teach an elderly friend how to use the internet more effectively. Maybe even set them up with an instant messaging or video chat app so they can communicate easier with friends and family.
  • Get out of the house as much as possible and try something new. Check out the local zoo or take a trip to the animal shelter to look for a future companion.
  • Work on a puzzle or try starting a new craft project that you can work on together.

Being a family caregiver is an act of love. It is something that requires daily hardship and is not rewarding in the financial way, but it is something that rewards you intrinsically. On Make a Difference Day, get back to the root of why you do what you do and have a little bit of fun with the ones you care for.
