Unknowns are something that most of us, young or old, are not comfortable dealing with. However, our experience as an adult medical daycare in Dundalk, Maryland at Caring Hands Adult Medical Daycare has shown us that this is something that seniors usually battle with as the unknowns become even more daunting with the gradual decline of their abilities and, for some of them, their independence.
Fortunately, you can help them by ensuring they have routines to follow throughout the day. That said, not all routines would do, you must make sure that they are personalized according to what they need and what they find worthwhile. This is what we make sure of as an adult daycare in Baltimore, Maryland.
For instance, our adult day services comprise not only of nursing and therapeutic services, but also of social activities and weekly trips.
We believe that by having a routine they can look forward to each day, we can prevent them from focusing on what they can’t do and allow them to enrich their lives in the way they want. Here are the specific ways this is possible:
- Having a routine improves sleep and relaxation.
- Having a routine increases feelings of safety and security.
- Having a routine reassures and inspires them to pursue other interests they would not have pursued otherwise.
- Having a routine reduces stress and anxiety.
