February 13th, 2016 1 Comment

Valentine’s Day isn’t just for couples in love. It’s a day to show your love and appreciation to all the people in your life. And at Visiting Angels NJ, we especially want to encourage you to convey your affection to seniors! Check out these enjoyable Valentine’s Day activities to do with your older loved ones:

Invite them over for a special afternoon tea…or bring the tea to them
Take them to the mall, out to lunch, or any other place they may be wanting to go
Play a round or two of cards or board games with them
Take them to a senior center that’s offering Valentine’s Day activities such as bingo or dancing
Bring your elderly neighbor a Valentine’s Day card, accompanied by homemade cookies or candy
Ask to look at their photo albums and encourage them to reminisce as they look through with you
If you’re long-distance, give them a call or video chat

Most of all, let them know you’re thinking about them and that you care about them. This will put smiles on their faces…and yours!

National Clean Hands Week

September 21-27 is National Clean Hands Week. Whether you work in the New Jersey elder care industry or not, it’s important always to be aware of the cleanliness of your hands. With cold and flu season just around the corner, we should all be especially careful about maintaining clean hands!

These may seem common sense, but just when should you wash your hands?

  • After using the restroom facilities
  • At the beginning and end of each work day
  • After touching surfaces that are contaminated
  • Before and after using gloves
  • Before eating, smoking, or touching medications
  • After wiping your nose or touching your face
  • Before preparing or eating food
  • After handling an animal
  • Before and after treating a cut or injury
  • Before and after helping someone who is ill
