DAYTON, Ohio, April 24, 2018 — As America’s population ages and families find themselves caring for the physical and mental health needs of their senior parents and loved ones, Comfort Keepers®, the leading franchise network in the in-home care market for seniors and other adults needing care, is releasing a resource guide to help families with that process.
“From Head-to-Toe: A Practical Guide to Seniors’ Mental Health & Wellbeing,” is a comprehensive handbook that contains information and resources that can aid families as they seek to help their senior loved one maintain and improve their mental health and wellbeing. The guide includes detailed research, touching personal stories, resources and activities that provide families with a clear picture of how to help their loved one.
“As a large percentage of our population ages, families are increasingly encountering new territory in their lives, especially when it comes to helping their senior parents navigate issues of mental wellbeing,” said Saudia Gajadhar, U.S. Director of Marketing at Comfort Keepers. “This mental health and wellbeing guide is designed to give those families the tools and resources they need to ensure their loved ones are getting the proper physical and mental care they need, whether that is physical exercise or mental activity that keeps them engaged in life.”
From Head-to-Toe takes readers through the most common issues they’re likely to encounter when caring for a senior, from forgetfulness, physical health issues and nutrition concerns, to depression and isolation, home safety incidents and alternatives to assisted living. In each scenario, readers are given strategies and tactics that can help them navigate the situation, as well as access to videos, studies, blog posts, questions to ask, and even recipes.
“Caregiving is one of the most fulfilling aspects of life, but it’s not something most people train for and can be extremely difficult when you don’t have the resources you need, or even know what resources you need,” said Gajadhar. “While Comfort Keepers is here to help families with caregiving when the time comes, we’re also here to help family caregivers find the resources they need to help them take care of their loved ones. That’s what we’re all about.”
