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.

“ Following a fall mum went from fully independent to needing care twice a day. I contacted a number of agencies and was initially most impressed with the immediate response from Home Instead (Dartford). They visited mum to discuss her needs and likes. Care started a couple of days later. I have to say that mum was a little concerned before the service started, as she had never needed care before. However, soon after mum rang me to say what a wonderful set of carers were looking after her. We are now a few months in and Mum is very happy as am I. I will say that this service was set up just before the Covid-19 situation, and I have been very impressed with the way the carers have coped with and worked through at this difficult time. The management team have also been great in keeping me informed and letting me know when an issue arises along with their solutions where appropriate. ’’

Older people in particular can be more vulnerable to the effects of a heatwave for a number of reasons – their bodies don’t adjust as easily to changes in temperature, they may have dementia and forget to stay hydrated or have long term health conditions like diabetes or heart problems which make them more at risk of heat exhaustion or heat stroke.
Russell Treasure, Mindfulness Coach from Manchester, has kindly written a guest blog for Home Instead Senior Care (nationwide), offering tips and guidance on mindfulness for older people. Our office in Dartford had the pleasure of hosting two sessions with him for our team over the past few months, to bring some calm in these uncertain times.
