Bloomfield IL, December, 2012 – ComForcare Home Care is sharing tips this winter to help seniors stay healthy. From encouraging healthy hygiene to sharing winter storm safety tips, ComForcare Home Care is helping educate seniors and their families.
“The health and well-being of seniors and their families is our primary concern,” states ComForcare President, Mark Armstrong. “We encourage seniors to take care of their health so they can enjoy the holiday season at home with their loved ones.”
During the winter months, the risk of a respiratory infection increases, especially for the elderly. To prevent a trip to the doctor’s office or hospital, ComForcare encourages people to take preventative measures. This includes getting a flu shot and the pneumococcal vaccine, particularly for those over 65 years old. Professionals at the home care service also recommend taking steps to avoid infection by washing hands frequently, avoiding crowds during peak flu season, getting plenty of rest, eating well, and keeping stress levels down. These suggestions apply to not only seniors, but their caregivers too.
ComForcare is also mindful of home care clients and seniors in the north east who may still be experiencing loss of power, food shortages, and other concerns due to the recent effects of Hurricane Sandy and the subsequent cold weather front. In these areas, President Obama has urged residents to look out for each other, especially seniors who are at a higher risk for exposure.
“We encourage seniors and their families across the country to take care of one another and we want them to know their local ComForcare home care office is here to help,” says Armstrong. “We offer services 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays, and even provide same day services for unexpected emergencies.”
