Everyone wants to age well. The professionally trained home caregivers from BrightStar Care in Westport know many ways to help seniors age well, and we want to help you accomplish that goal.
- Good Nutrition
Eating properly is possibly the number-one thing you can do to stay healthy as you age. Companion care services from BrightStar Care in Westport can help you prepare nutritious, balanced meals that are created specifically to help you age well. You may need to adjust your diet based on medical needs, such as lowering sodium intake or managing your cholesterol. Your caregiver can help you plan meals that meet those goals and taste great.
- Proper Hydration
Alongside proper nutrition, hydration is the best thing you can do for your body. You may be surprised how much water your body requires on a daily basis to function well. If you find it difficult to drink water, add a little taste by squeezing lemon into your glass.
Some elderly individuals may find it difficult to get enough sleep every night, but sleeping well is very important. Home companions can help you create a bedtime routine that will help you fall asleep and stay asleep. With proper and sufficient sleep every night, you can see a drastic change in both your energy level and overall health.
- Staying Active
To age well and stay healthy, it’s important to stay active both mentally and physically. Home care providers can help you stay mentally and physically fit by accompanying you on short outings and helping with light exercise. Your home companion can also play games like chess and other mentally challenging activities.
The most important thing to remember to ask for help when you need it. With help for home support and personal care, BrightStar Care in Westport is here when you need us.
