Autumn is here!

Autumn is a beautiful time of year. Leaves are changing colour and there is already a subtle change to the weather. It’s tempting to want to hold on to the summer but autumn and winter bring lots of wonderful things too. Halloween and Christmas won’t be long coming and these occasions bring joy to us all! So snuggle up by the fire and enjoy the weeks and months to come.

 

ALHomecare tips for Seniors this Autumn:

  • Have your gas/oil boiler checked – Staying warm through autumn and winter is important. Making sure that the heating system in your house is working properly will give you peace of mind and regular maintenance ensures you don’t get any costly surprises later on. As the saying goes: “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
  • Check all safety devices in the home – Ask a relative to check that your smoke alarms are all working properly and if you have a home fire extinguishers, make sure it is still in working order.
  • Eat and drink plenty – Start now to build yourself up for the months ahead. Eat plenty of healthy food. Include plenty of fibre in your diet. Drink herbal tea and water to keep yourself hydrated.
  • Join a local club/keep activity –  It’s very tempting to sit at home watching tv or reading the newspaper at this time of the year, especially when the evenings start to get darker earlier. Try to get out for even a short walk every day. Find out about activities for seniors in your area. A night at the bingo is great fun or what about bridge? Aerobics for seniors is also a fun activity and a way of catching up with old friends. You would be surprised who you’d meet!

We at ALHomecare wish you a great autumn and winter this year!
