New Jersey Senior Care - Happy HolidaysHoliday Home Care Angels in New Jersey

The holiday season is a wonderful time to visit relatives, travel, eat great food, and give wonderful gifts to the ones you love. Unfortunately, it’s also a time of busy schedules, crowds and a break from the regular routine. If you need help with the daily care of a loved one, call Visiting Angels for in-home personal care in New Jersey. When your schedule goes crazy, and you need a miracle, we can offer respite and peace of mind. Give yourself, and your loved one, the gift of a Visiting Angel this holiday season.

The interruption in a daily schedule can be upsetting to our elder loved ones who depend on the benefits of a routine. Routine is comforting to those who struggle with memory loss, and to others who just like things to stay the same. Visiting Angels’ in-home care providers support routine. Doing specific tasks on the same day of each week allows for a sense of continuity in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the season.

Is Monday his laundry day? Do you always do their shopping on Friday? Is Thursday her hair appointment? Do you just not have time to fit these in your tight schedule this time of year? Do you need a miracle? Call Visiting Angels. We’ve got you covered, and we’ll extend the comfort and care to your loved one’s daily routines: Meals at the same time and on time, maintaining their medication schedule, talking or taking a walk after lunch and bedtime at the exact time as yesterday and the days before. Assistance is available every day, night and day.

You want your aging loved ones to stay in their home as long as possible, and the stability of anticipating the expected is a source of security for them. Surprises aren’t always appreciated, and change can be met with anxious feelings. The services of Visiting Angels are designed to support seniors in their daily activities and routines, and to eliminate stress – for them and you.  We understand the uniqueness of each individual and the importance of routine with flexibility and comfort without constriction. We’re here to meet your needs and the needs of your loved ones with skill and compassion.

For elder and senior care in New Jersey during the holiday season and year round, call Visiting Angels at 609-883-8188. When you need a miracle, we’ll send you an angel.

Ancestor Appreciation Day

Spend Time With Your Older Loved Ones Reminiscing During Ancestor Appreciation Day

September 27th is Ancestor Appreciation Day. Do you know who your relatives are beyond the past two generations? Most of us don’t, which leads to a terrific NJ elder care project you can do with your older relatives: glean all the information you can from your uncles, great-uncles, aunts, great-aunts, grandparents, great-grandparents, etc. Look through old photos with them and label the photos. If you’re really ambitious, help create a scrapbook or ancestry log. While doing that, you’ll be sure to hear interesting and sometimes amazing stories about your relatives. As a bonus benefit, you’ll be spending time with your older relatives; they’ll feel appreciated and loved knowing someone cares to hear about the “old days.”
