Home care clients are encouraged to get out and enjoy their favorite summer activities with families and friends.
ComForcare Home Care is dedicated to promoting the independence and quality of life for every client it serves. One of the best ways to improve your quality of life is to spend time with loved ones. Summer allows plenty of opportunities to visit, play, relax or simply appreciate the joys of living.
Enjoy the Outdoors
Spend time outside. Invite grandchildren over for some outdoor games, or ask your home care provider to accompany you on an evening walk. Take precautions when it is especially warm by limiting the amount of time spent sun, wearing protective clothing and sunscreen and drinking plenty of water.
Another fun way to enjoy the summer is to maintain a simple garden. This can be as easy as growing flowers in the patio pots, or herbs in window boxes. Select plant varieties native to your location and watch as they attract butterflies or birds. Look forward to harvest time when you can share your home-grown vegetables with family, friends and neighbors.
Cook Fresh Meals
Speaking of vegetables, summer also brings an even wider variety of fresh produce to market. Look for unique foods that you have never cooked with before and try a new recipe. Start a cooking club and swap recipes and dishes with friends. If you want to try out new recipes but are unable to cook, ask your home care provider to help you in the kitchen. Caregivers are happy to pick up ingredients at the market and help prepare a fun fresh meal.
One of the best ways to enjoy the summer is by participating in local community events. Whether you attend an arts festival, wine tasting event, fireworks display, or local parade, there are many ways to socialize with others in the community and spend time with friends. Look for family-friendly events to that would be fun for grandchildren or attend an art exhibition with a special someone or home care companion.
Make plans and try something new this summer! Spending time with the ones you love is the best way to boost your health and your spirits, and creates cherished memories.
