Senior Care near Leucadia Shows Some Love

Senior Care Leucadia Valentines Day

A Reminder from Senior Care near Leucadia to Show Your Love

Hopefully, your Valentine’s Day weekend was filled with gifts, expressions of love, and—of course—chocolate! But as you spend time with that special someone, don’t forget to also make time for the people who poured out so much love as you grew up: your aging parents. Senior care near Leucadia thinks that it is a great time of year to send some love the way of the elderly among us.

Little Thoughts Count!

Most seniors avoid “complaining” at all costs. That means it is up to us to pay attention and notice when our elderly family members might be having an unusually hard time emotionally. Has your parent lost a loved one or been divorced recently? Valentine’s Day might be a difficult time for her. Seeing romantic TV commercials and hearing about others’ dinner plans can be painful reminders of lost experiences. A simple greeting card or a visit to say “I understand!” means more than you know.

Depression: A Real Problem

Experts have become very concerned about the issue of depression among the elderly, particularly men. There are many different causes for depression, but simple loneliness is a major and avoidable one. When family members and professionals in senior care in San Diego County are around, elderly people are less likely to dwell on their own situation and any regrets they may have. Valentine’s Day is a great time to stop by and cheer up the senior in your life, but keep up the habit all year round.

Seniors Love Senior Care in San Diego County

One of the greatest benefits of working in the senior care industry is getting to develop beautiful relationships with those we serve. We don’t expect a Hollywood love story, but the time we spend learning about the lives of our clients and their families is something we wouldn’t trade for the world. Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your entire family!
