How Do you Know the Level of Care You Need?

Only you can really decide which care services are needed for you or your loved one. We encourage you to understand your options. If you’re just starting to realize that more help is needed, keep in mind that these needs will only increase. Unless you and your family are willing to personally take on more caregiving roles in the future, it would beneficial to begin looking for alternatives through research and talking to professionals and friends.

At The Glenview at Pelican Bay, we know what you’re going through. When the time is right for you, consult with your family doctor, and then confer with a geriatric care manager for an initial assessment and evaluation. In all cases, be sure to communicate with other family members. The GlenCare Home Healthcare Team would be pleased to assist you with these initial services and provide you with a professional care plan.

Encourage seniors to eat a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats. Limit processed foods, sugary snacks, and excessive salt intake. Drinking plenty of water is also essential for staying hydrated and supporting bodily functions.Prioritize Mental Health: Mental health is just as important as physical health, especially as we age.

Address any signs of depression, anxiety, or cognitive decline promptly by seeking professional help if needed.Maintain Social Connections: Social interaction is vital for seniors' emotional well-being and overall happiness.

Finding Comfort in Change: Senior Move Management Made Simple

Change can be challenging, especially for seniors who are transitioning to a new living environment. At A Call to Order Professional Organizer, we understand the importance of finding comfort in change and strive to make the process of senior move management as simple and stress-free as possible. In this guide, we'll explore the benefits of senior move management and provide practical tips for navigating this transition with ease. Understanding Senior Move ManagementSenior move management involves coordinating and overseeing the relocation process for seniors who are downsizing, relocating to a new home, or transitioning to a senior living community. This comprehensive service encompasses everything from decluttering and packing to coordinating logistics and settling into a new space. By partnering with experienced professionals, seniors and their families can alleviate the stress and logistical challenges associated with moving.Practical Tips for Simplifying Senior Move ManagementStart Early: Begin the senior move management process as early as possible to allow ample time for planning and preparation. Create a timeline outlining key tasks and deadlines, and break down the process into manageable steps. Starting early can help reduce stress and ensure that all aspects of the move are addressed in a timely manner.Declutter and Downsize: Before packing for the move, declutter and downsize belongings to reduce the amount of items that need to be transported. Encourage seniors to carefully consider which possessions are essential and bring joy, and let go of items that no longer serve a purpose or hold sentimental value. This process can be emotionally challenging, so offer support and encouragement throughout.Create a Floor Plan: Obtain a floor plan of the new living space and strategize furniture placement and layout in advance. This will help seniors visualize how their belongings will fit into the new environment and make informed decisions about what to bring with them. Consider the senior's mobility and accessibility needs when planning the layout to ensure a safe and comfortable living space.Pack Strategically: Pack belongings systematically, labeling boxes according to room and contents to facilitate the unpacking process. Use sturdy packing materials and protective padding for fragile items, and keep essential items easily accessible for immediate use upon arrival at the new home. Encourage seniors to pack a "first-day essentials" box containing toiletries, medications, bedding, and other necessities.Coordinate Logistics: Coordinate logistics such as hiring professional movers, scheduling transportation, and arranging for utilities to be transferred or set up at the new residence. Keep important documents, such as medical records, legal paperwork, and financial documents, organized and easily accessible throughout the moving process. Consider enlisting the help of a senior move management company to streamline these logistics and ensure a smooth transition.At A Call to Order Professional Organizer, we understand that change can be overwhelming, especially for seniors facing a relocation.
