When the Senior in Your Life Needs Extra Care

Senior Care in Crawfordville FL

Jack was an avid gardener throughout his adult life. Even when he was in his 20s, he grew a small garden for his landlord on a patch of property that was adjacent from his apartment. However, as heSenior Care in Crawfordville FL got older it was more difficult for him to continue to garden.  As a result, his garden began losing its luster – it was full of weeds and as dry as the desert.  Jack just didn’t have the ability to get out there and weed it like he used to and water it on a regular basis.

Jack’s family had been telling him he needed to seriously consider giving up gardening, at least for a while. He had suffered a mild stroke during the winter months, and, since that time, his ability to ambulate on his own had been seriously affected. He required a walker to get around the house and could no longer drive.

Jack, with the help of his family, came to the realization that he needed a caregiver – someone to help him tend to household tasks and personal care…and the garden.  His family didn’t understand the importance of Jack maintaining a garden. They kept telling him to stop worrying so much about the garden and focus more on himself.

Much to Jack’s surprise, he was able to find an agency that could provide him with a caregiver who was knowledgeable enough and physically capable of helping him tend to his garden.  The caregiver also helped him around the house, prepared meals, and ran errands.

While a garden might not seem like a major concern for seniors who need extra care, it’s important to consider the physical activity they get by working outdoors. June is Perennial Gardening Month, and an experienced senior care provider may also be able to help seniors work in their garden.
