Senior Adult Day Care
Senior Adult Day Care in Menifee. Does your senior parent need adult day care? We have the ability to help them get the mind and physical stimulation they need to keep interested in life.
As adults grow older they tend to sleep more lightly and often awaken during the night from needing to go to the bathroom or just wake up from achy joints. So many seniors make up for lost hours of sleep by catching up with naps during the day. Elders with dementia also seem to sleep more during the day, often falling asleep when they lose interest in meals or fail to notice that they need to use the bathroom.
Boredom, depression chronic pain or other deficiencies can the the cause of adults falling asleep at odd time during the day. Medications can also be the cause. If you want your senior adult to stay awake more during the day and sleep better at night, then an Adult Day Care Provider can help.
Just the schedule of getting to the Adult Day Care Home can be very helpful for the Senior. Senior Assisted Living Facilities, have full time residents, but can also provide Adult Day Care for your Senior. Just getting your senior to participate in card games, music listening, or sing a-longs, can help them get the stimulation they need to sleep less during the day. Even the companionship and day trips can help the elder maintain an interest in life. Engaging in activities can really help your senior feel better and stay awake longer during the day. At most homes they offer crossword puzzles, trivia games and activities to give mind stimulation, interaction with our home residents can be very interesting to your senior.
If you are getting ready to start a new senior assisted facility, you will need a website. Please call Cory George Website Developer. Visit the Contact Page and send her an email.

If you find them struggling with basic activities like walking, getting to the toilet, or taking care of basic hygiene its time to talk about living in an assisted living facility.
Talk to your senior parents about this important transition when they are comfortable and have no distractions so you may have a good and productive conversation. Avoid being critical, your goal is to bring a decision that is helpful and the in the best interest of the Senior Parent.
Point to discuss with your parents are:
- Problems with safety hazards at home.
- Difficulties with everyday activities.

- Health Issue. Are there chronic health problems?
- Does the Senior have financial issues?
These are all good points to discuss when trying to make the Assisted Living Transition.

Senior Tips Fourth of July
If you are planning a family outing for your senior family members or friends.
When Barbecuing or Cooking Outdoors –
Find out what sort of seating should be used. If you have backless picnic benches, consider that elderly persons will sit on it and have no back support. Try providing folding chairs, or stack-able plastic chairs. Even a cushion will help keep back pain in check for seniors. Many seniors have to deal with back pain and will find sitting for long periods uncomfortable.
If your guests are in a wheelchairs, make sure you have wide enough and slopes gentle enough to maneuver in the back yard.
If you do not have lots of shade, then use portable beach umbrellas to help keep bright sun off of your senior guests.
Seniors should consider wearing comfortable clothes that include layers, never know when the wind will pick up and give them a chill. Also use sturdy shoes to prevent falls and trips. Don’t forget the sun screen for your senior’s skin.
At a barbecue party be sure to set up a spot for your senior away from the hot grill and any areas where children may be likely to throw balls or roughing around.
Make sure they are closely locate near the bathrooms. Seniors often need to take several restroom breaks.
Take care that your seniors do not get dehydrated. Make sure they have plenty of water. Avoid alcoholic beverages, due to dehydration and it can conflict with medications.
Watch seniors for signs of restlessness, overheating or other distress. Try not to put any pressure on seniors for socializing or talking to other. It makes them feel comfortable just to be around others without the pressure of talking.

Senior Mothers Day Gifts
Seniors Mothers Day Gifts can be difficult to figure out sometimes. You should try a homemade gift. Some great homemade gifts can really be more rewarding that store bought flowers and candy. How about making a Memory Jar or a Photo Bouquet?
Here are some simple instructions.
For a Memory Jar, you will need a nice jar, several pieces of paper and time to work on it. On each piece of paper write down a different memory of a wonderful time that you have shared with your mother. Fold the pieces of paper and place them in the jar so she can read them over time. What a wonderful way to share memories with your mother. Even after the day is over, she can go back and read them again and again.
Flowers are always beautiful, but they eventually dye and wither. How about giving a bouquet of photos that will last and last. Cut flower shapes from construction paper and gluing photo cut-outs in the center of the flower. Have color copies of photos to use. Try to find photos of child memories or take new digital images and get them printed. Paste these photos onto the flower shapes and add outer frames to add more color. You can then glue green stems to hold the photos up and form a bouquet. Place them into a nice little vase, or paste them on a bigger home made card.
We hope you have a Happy Mothers Day!

Recognizing Dementia Symptoms Early
Dementia Symptoms are important to know. The signs can get you or your loved-one treatment a lot earlier. There are many articles regarding symptoms of dementia. We are presenting some of the key notes we feel are important to know.
Some seniors have a difficult time remembering where they left their keys or maybe they forget the regular time of their favor TV Show. The hard part is determining if these are signs of dementia or maybe just a normal part of aging. We hope some of these items listed will give you an idea of how to determine if your senior is showing signs of Dementia.
It’s important to catch symptoms of dementia as soon as possible. These symptoms can be caused by underlying medical conditions. Early treatment can slow the progression of even certain un-treatable types of dementia, like Alzheimer’s.
Dementia symptoms are often misunderstood and create frustration for the family and professional caregivers. There are many seminars on living with the challenging symptoms of dementia. We hope to give you a few bullet points to help recognize the symptoms.
- Senior may experience problems with walking and balance. Studies have been conducted presenting that some of the earliest signs of dementia may be physical, rather than mental. Watch out for problems walking and balancing, as well as a weak hand grip.
- Slips and fall. The symptoms outlined above can lead to frequent stumbling and falling. In one 2011 study of 125 older adults, people who fell most often during an eight- month period were found to also show other early signs of Alzheimer’s.
- Inability to detect sarcasm or lies. If you have noticed that your loved one has become usually gullible lately, she or he may be exhibiting the early signs of dementia. A 2011 study found that patients with certain degenerative brain diseases could not tell when someone was using sarcasm or speaking untruthfully.
- Staring. When we converse, we naturally move our eyes around. But someone with dementia might no-instead, you might notice them staring frequently. You might also notice this eye movement problem if your loved one skips lines when reading aloud.
- Strange eating habits. Research if finding that different dementia s often cause people to exhibit odd eating habits, such as a sudden strong taste for sweet foods, cramming food into their mouths, or even eating spoiled food or things that aren’t food.
- Being hurtful. Your usually sweet, kind mother is saying insulting or inappropriate things, and seeming to show no concern for how they might be hurting or embarrassing others. This behavior is not a usual part of aging – it’s a common early sign of dementia.
- Compulsive behavior. Many people like things done a certain way. But people in the early stages of dementia may exhibit strange obsessive compulsive behaviors such as locking doors over and over, or buying a can of corn every time they visit the store, even though they have a cupboard full at home.
This article was created based on information provided by Diane Walker, RN,MS,CSA. We thank her for the key notes given.
If you have a loved one who shows early stages of dementia. It may be time to consider an Assisted Living Home. For those cases with severe Dementia, be sure to consult your family physical about the home environment your senior needs.

Talk About Independent Living With Your Parents
It’s important to talk to your parents about independent living. Your parents might have lived in their home for decades, so it’s understandable that they are not eager to move to a new place when they get older. Even if the house is getting difficult to maintain or doesn’t meet their needs, there are years of memories there. Change can be hard for everyone involved.
We recently found this nice article on AARP and thought you should read it. You can even sign up for Health Newsletters at their site.
It’s good to talk with your parents while they are still health about what might be needed to remain living independently- often parents and loved ones find some peace of mind in discussing those issues when things are going well. If you wait until a crisis occurs, you will have to make decisions quickly and you might not know your loved one’s wishes.
Many adult children don’t know how to bring up the subject of independent living with their parents. Here are some tips for sharing this difficult dialogue, keeping focused and dealing with resistance.
Beginning the conservation: Raise the issues indirectly, mention a friend’s mother who recently hired in-home help, or an article that you read about programs at a nearby senior center. Example: “Is that something you might be interested in learning more about?”
Find Small ways to bridge the issue: Example: ” I know you’re taking pills for arthritis, your heart and cholesterol. Would it help if you had one of those medication organizers you can buy in the drugstore?”
Share your own emotions: Example: ” Dad, it’s hard for me to see you slowing down and I know you’ve always prided yourself on being independent I imagine it’s difficult for you to ask for help, but what are some things that we can do?”
Set the right tone: Once the topic has been brought up, listen to how your parents feel about their current needs, concerns, worries and hopes for the future. Don’t guess or make assumptions about your parents’ preferences. Ask open-ended questions. that get them to express their perceptions.
Use communication that states your concern and avoids criticism. Example: ” I’m feeling concerned that you may fall coming down the stairs. I could put a 100 watt bulb at the bottom of the stairs and install a handrail: Don’ say: ” Going upstairs in your condition is ridiculous. You’re sure to fall.”
Avoid role reversal: Helping our doesn’t mean you are “parenting” your parents. The most productive interaction comes when parents and adult children are equal in the relationship.
If your parents condition requires Assisted Living with everyday activities. Then you need to consider a assisted living home Sun City, California. They offer full time assisted living services. We monitor and accommodate your parents with daily meals, assistance with taking their medications, clothing and bathing.
Exercise Tips for Seniors
Senior Care Homes encourage exercise and have exercise tips for seniors. As you know getting to be over the age of 50 you start to experience more stiffness or you may find out that you have arthritis or diabetes. You may also start to notice that your muscle tone is not what it use to be. If you do not stay active you may find your body getting more out of shape. Staying active is the best way to stay flexible and healthy as we get older. We have listed a few tips you may want to keep in mind as you age as a senior.
Tips for Seniors in Sun City California
1. Low impact exercises to minimize stress on the joints for knees, hips, elbows and ankles. Jogging or running is a high impact exercise, you may want to do more walking instead. In Sun City we have lots of great walking. The neighborhood is quiet and there are concrete sidewalks available for walking.
2. Stretching is low-impact exercise. Stretching improves balance and flexibility as well as “Yoga Moves” are also a good idea for seniors.
3. Strength training is a great way to build muscle tone. You don’t have to lift heavy weights. Try “Resistance Bands,” while sitting in a chair you can increase arm strength and flexibility by using resistance bands. You can also strengthen your legs by using those bands with your legs.
4. Aerobic dancing is also a good way to get great exercise. You can work out with a DVD or join a class at our local senior centers located in Sun City and Menifee.
5. Water exercise is another way to get exercise. In Sun City we have a Community Center for the homeowners. Pool swimming is available for registered guests. Pool swimming is great for low impact exercise, and the water cushions the joints and makes movements smooth. If you have arthritis, swimming is the best form of exercise, even walking in the swimming pool is a great work out for seniors.

Medicine Taking Tips for Seniors
Here are a few great Medicine Taking Tips for taking your meds every day. If you are taking medication or several different pills at different time of day. You need some help! If you are a senior, this can be overwhelming. We have outlined a few tips.
Get in on the Calendar:
Hand a calendar on your wall. Use your daily diary or add a task to your electronic calendar to mark each day with the number and type of pills you need to take. Use color coded pens to make the reminders stand out in the print. If you like to use the internet. There are email calendars that can help you.
Look at it:
Store your medicine where you are likely to see it every day. Place it next to your coffee where you normally eat everyday. For morning pills leave it where you eat your breakfast. For nighttime pills, leave it near your night stand beside your bed.
If you can’t store your pills somewhere where you will see them, then leave sticky notes to remind you. Maybe you could use your refrigerator or in your bathroom on the mirror. But just be careful about this use of sticky notes, – they do fall off.
Box it: (this is our favorite tip)
Pill boxes are very good. This is the most effective system for monitoring your pills. The plastic boxes can be purchased at the grocery store or drugstore. These small plastic containers are divided into small boxes, with each box designated for each day of the week or month. Place all the pills you need into each day in the right boxes.
If you still have trouble remembering your pills, ask a trusted friend to call or text you daily reminders. This only works if your friend don’t forget either.
Smart Phone Apps:
There are smart phone apps for pill reminders. iPhone, iPad or Android users have apps, and reminder apps are one of them. They have various loud sounding alarms to remind you to take your pills. So there is no excuse to forget taking your pills.
Taking Care of Mom and Dad?
Are you faced with taking care of mom and dad? We found a really interesting article ” National Survey Reveals Children Choose Mom Over Dad.” Found this article at Visiting Angels.com An estimated 70 million fathers live in the U.S. today, but if they plan on moving in with their children in the golden years, they better might consider making some changes.
The recent national poll reveals 70% of adult children do NOT want their parents moving in with them. Money won’t even motivate them. 85% say even if they got more of the inheritance they would NOT be more inclined to move in their parents. However, if they had to choose, only 33% (1 out of 3) would choose to move in their dad over their mom. The majority would rather move in Mom!
The national survey of more than 1,100 adults, ages 40 and older with both living parents. was commissioned by Visiting Angeles, one of our national’s largest in-home senior care companies with more than 450 offices throughout the country. Doll’s Havens is a senior / elder care facility. A private home whereby you parent lives with in a home environment and food and day to day assistance is provided. It has a warm home style environment. We welcome your parents, Mom or Dad.
So why does Dad lose out to Mom in this survey?
Most say Dad:
- Has worse hygiene than Mom (75%)
- Is more likely than Mom to say inappropriate things (75%)
- Is sloppier than Mom (70%)
- Is lazier than Mom (68%)
- Would want to control the TV more than Mom (69%)
Who Chose Dad Over Mom?
Dads should stay on good terms with their first child. Of the one third of all respondents who choose to move in Dad over Mom, most of them are the oldest child. Still they don’t think they should have to bear the burden. Of all the folks polled, 32% say the child that lives the closes should bear the most responsibility for their aging parents. While 27% say the most responsible for aging parents should fall to the child with the least obligations. (i.e, no spouse or children)
What’s the Adult Child’s Plan?
When asked what is the plan for their aging parents – Almost 3.4 of respondents (72%) say they DON’T have a plan. More than half (54% ) say they haven’t even talked about it.
41% say they would prefer their parents remain in their own home. But when this is not possible, we suggest a Elder Care Facilities in Menifee/Sun City, California. We provide assistance in their daily living. When money is a concern, there are ways to get State or Federal assistance, if you qualify. We strongly urge seniors and their adult children to get a plan, be sure you know how you will handle the senior’s living quarters when they need daily assistance.
