Comfort Keepers and Home Health Agencies Celebrate Spring!

Mar 29, 2018 by Alan White

Spring is finally here! Now that the winter chill beginning to recede and the plants are starting to bloom, it’s time to get active! Our home health agencies usually talk about the specifics of caring for a loved one, but today we recommend simply experiencing the beauty of springtime.

Our society is in such a hurry, and your parents have worked hard most of their adult lives. And after a life full of activity, sitting at home doing nothing can be surprisingly tiring. Inactivity is linked to many different health problems, including poor circulation, loss of strength, a weaker immune system, higher blood pressure, depression, and even hormone imbalances! During the winter months, going outside can range from uncomfortable to dangerous, so your loved one may not have seen many opportunities for activity in the last 3 months. With spring here, they have a good opportunity to walk around and stretch their muscles.

If your loved one is looking for something to do, our home health agencies have a few possibilities:

  • Gardening: Early spring is the perfect time to start planting a garden! Your loved one can buy seeds, bulbs, or seedlings from local businesses like ATL Urban Farms to start the reason off right.
  • Farmer’s Markets: If growing vegetables isn’t your loved one’s cup of tea, they can take a trip down to the Cumming Harvest any Saturday at the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit.
  • Cumming Local Activities: There are plenty of seasonal activities to hop on board with. Cumming Local has a list of events including Easter festivities, strawberry picking and more.

 Our home health agencies in Georgia are excited that spring has come back, and we hope you are excited too. Let’s make the most of spring this year. Happy Easter!
