How Do I Keep My Grandma Happy and Healthy?

Eating healthily and staying socially engaged and physically active are essential to maintaining optimism and good health as we age. To keep your grandma happy and healthy, try some of the following activities:

· Play Brain Games Together

Brain games like Sudoku or memory games can prevent the cognitive impairment associated with dementia or slow the progression of symptoms.

· Encourage Your Grandmother to Stay Active

Even if her mobility is limited, there are specific exercises she can do daily to stay healthy.

· Meditate with Your Grandma

Studies show that mindfulness exercise increases resilience and reduces stress. It can also help your grandma with negative thoughts linked to anxiety and depression, increase her optimism, and relax.

· Encourage Your Grandma to Eat Healthily

A diet rich in various nutritious foods is essential at any age. However, eating healthily can promote healthy aging. Encourage your grandma to eat many veggies, fruits, and whole grains. A healthy diet for the elderly should also include daily servings of low-fat or fat-free dairy, fish, eggs, and lean meat.

At the same time, your grandma should avoid processed foods and foods loaded with sugar and empty calories.

· Do Some Gardening Together

Tending to a garden can keep your grandma occupied while she spends time in the fresh air.

Devoted Guardians'
Response to COVID-19

Devoted Guardians is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus, COVID-19, to ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information on the threat of the virus. As you know, this situation continues to develop rapidly as new cases are identified in our communities and our protocols will be adjusted as needed.

While most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a very small percentage of cases become severe and may progress particularly in the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that Devoted Guardians serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
