Communications with Far-away seniors in Sydney East

Keeping in Touch with Elderly Loved Ones When You Live in Separate States

| getmilk |

While you may wish that you lived closer to your senior loved one, there are ways that Sydney East elderly care professionals recommend for you both to stay connected. It requires some creativity on your part, but the rewards are very worthwhile. Here are a few ideas to get you started. 

Host a Conference Party

If everyone cannot be present for an important holiday or other event, then consider hosting a conference party. Set up a time for everyone to call a particular number. Then, spend some time visiting with each other. Parties usually work best if one person serves as the moderator.

Log onto Facebook

Help your senior create a Facebook account. Then, invite him or her to a special family group. This gives your loved one a space to share what is going on in his or her life. Making the group private allows everyone to share photos securely. This helps people with many different schedules keep up with what is going on easily.

Write Letters

You probably already know the joy that comes when you open the mailbox to find a personal letter. Sydney East caregivers believe these letters can be very important to seniors. You can even create chain letters where everyone shares what is going on in their lives and then sends it on to the next person.

Share Blogs

You do not need many computer skills to create a blog that everyone will enjoy. There are many free sites that let you create a personal blog. Share the link with all family members and watch everyone’s activities. Each family member could even be assigned a day of the week to write about what is happening in their family.

Keep Journals

Keeping a journal is a great way to keep up with a senior’s activities. You can even create a notebook with different dividers for different things. For example, one area could be set aside for the senior to write anything while another could be set aside for doctor’s notes. Many seniors find it useful to have one area set aside for important bills and receipts.

This is the best home care company in Australia !
As a former employee of this company working in the office and as a Carer, I cannot recommend this company enough. They genuinely care for their clients and employees. I loved working there with... Jeremy and his staff, but unfortunately had to leave due to relocation. I would not hesitate to recommend HCA Syd East to all clients who are aged and/or with disabilities to engage this service provider for all their vital services to enable you to live and enjoy staying in your own home and to be as independent as possible. Jeremy and his staff really listen to your needs, goals and aspirations and do their very best to match you up with a compatible and suitably qualified Carer. Nothing is too much more
Jeremy is a really good man, he has fantastic family values and cares for everyone. I would definitely recommend Health Care Assistance to help you and your family
Home Care Assistance run by Jeremy and Samantha, a lovely couple with a caring attitude and a family themselves. After bringing my Mum to Sydney and needing expert help immediately I found HCA online... and liked their story. As soon as they walked in our door, we knew we were safe. I liked the fact that there was direct contact with the owners and nothing was too much trouble. The carers selected for Mum were perfect for her and very capable. Unfortunately Mum has had to move to a nursing home now but I would happily recommend this wonderful business to anyone with aged care more
Very happy with this Company looking after my Home Care Package. Very friendly staff and always available to arrange things. Also the home care and help in garden is excellent and I couldn't do... without more
As We are the Family With kid experienced to stay by this agent, I can not recommend this company enough. They genuinely care for their clients, whenever I asked for help a person I contact with... always try her best to help that I most thankful for more
