Growing old can bring challenges, both for the person who’s ageing and for their family. It can be frustrating for our loved ones because they can’t do everything they used to and feel like they’re losing their independence. At the same time, it might be worrying for their family as they might not be able to be there whenever their loved ones need them.

As we all know, Christmas is a little different this year. Here at Home Instead South Bucks we wanted to be able to spread the Christmas spirit as well as individually thank all of our CAREGiver’s for all of their hard work during this really tough time. Normally, we would be hosting a CAREGiver Christmas party, but this year we came up with a COVID safe way of celebrating…
During this time, it’s so important to us that our CAREGivers and office teams feel confident and happy to be able to do the wonderful job they are doing caring for older people. There have been challenges for everyone and for us at Home Instead, we wanted to make sure our CAREGivers were happy in their role so that they can continue to deliver the best person-centred home care possible.
As temperatures are starting to rise this week, we have put together some simple tips to stay safe in the sun for you and your clients. Avoid going out at the hottest times of the day (between 11am – 3pm) If you do need to venture out make sure you aren’t outside for long periods of time and find shady spots when you can. Keep hydrated – even if you’re not thirsty it’s important to drink plenty of water or fruit juice to replace lost fluids. Think lightweight – choose clothing which is loose, lightweight, light coloured and breathable, such as linen or cotton. Sunscreen- don't forget to apply sunscreen before you go out into the sun. Cool down – take cool showers and baths when possible. If you’re out and about, use a cotton hankie soaked in cool water and place it on the back of your neck and on your wrists. Cover up – in addition to wearing cooler clothing it’s also important to remember a hat to help to keep your face in the shade. Pick the perfect spot – seek out the coolest areas of your home during warmer weather. Keep curtains and blinds closed if possible to prevent sun heating up rooms, especially the bedroom.
