The “Give-Back” program is a series of activity resource sheets for caregivers and care community activity professionals who are trying to help keep even frail and isolated seniors engaged and provide them opportunities to help others. Some projects can be adopted by an individual; others are ideal for group projects or as a meaningful activity with friends.
The need to be needed does not diminish with age, experts say. Keeping seniors connected and giving back might even help them age with better health, and help reduce feelings of isolation and depression. The Home Instead Senior Care® network has captured simple and adaptable ideas from seniors and care community professionals to create the “Give-Back” program. Older adults across North America are proving that – with a little help – seniors can still make a difference.
If you’re a family caregiver who needs help keeping your senior engaged, contact your local Home Instead Senior Care office to learn how a CAREGiver could assist you and your senior.
CAREGivers from Home Instead Senior Care can make a difference in the lives of older adults and their families by providing support with activities of daily living to help keep them independent for as long as possible.
