Don’t Forgot About Personal Care This Jubilee Weekend

01 Jun 2022

This coming weekend, the Queen of England celebrates her platinum jubilee. For many this means extended time with family and friends relaxing and having fun. As a direct result of this, you will be spending more time showing your loved ones you care. 

Amidst all of the aforementioned fun and games, it might be very easy to forget about personal care, especially for the elderly. Sometimes older people might live far away from friends and relatives making accessing them very difficult. In turn, making this supposedly joyous occasion a potentially lonely time. 

At Hands on Care, your premium supplier of personal care from Telford, we believe that everyone should have some much needed rest and recuperation this coming weekend. So let’s detail some ways you can help to implement personal care this coming Jubilee weekend. 

Invites Are Important 

Receiving an invite to a social or family gathering is essential in helping people to feel accepted and wanted. As previously mentioned, if you do not have easy access to your friends or family, the jubilee weekend could be a potentially lonely and isolated time. However, we employ you to reach out and get everyone involved this coming weekend.

If we are lucky enough to have nice weather, you might be tempted to have a barbecue. If this is the case, be sure to order extra food and drink in so you can cater to more guests. Try to have party games as these will help your elderly friend or relative feel more involved. 

All this will not be possible however without an initial invitation. Invites to social gatherings not only make the individual feel wanted and cared for but they succeed in getting the individual excited for what might be to come. 

Play Interacting Games 

At some of the aforementioned gatherings you might want to play fun interactive games. Whether that be a simple card game, a ‘guess who’ style game or a multiplayer game on an electronic console. There are a plethora of games you might want to play this coming weekend. 

The actual game is not important. What is important, however, is the fact that the game should be interactive and fun. The game having multiple participants engages everyone, making them feel wanted and accepted as well as pathing the way for many interesting and playful conversation topics. So this Jubilee weekend why don’t you play some fun and interactive games with your loved ones. 

Pay A Surprise Visit

If your elderly friend or relative does not want to attend your social gathering, there is no need to worry, you can still implement a more attentive form of personal care by paying them a surprise visit. Going out of your way to visit someone is a fantastically easy way to show someone that you care. 

Paying a visit to an elderly friend or relative is also a great option if mobility is a consideration. Sometimes your elderly associate might not be able to visit you as they have suffered a mobility affecting illness or incident in their lives, so going to visit them might be the only option. 

When visiting them; this will also make it significantly easier for you to help them with any issues they might be having. These can include helping them go for a walk, assisting with cleaning and delivering medicine or medication if acquiring it from a pharmacy is usually a problem for them. 

Fun, Fun and More Fun!

Regardless of how you choose to spend this Jubilee weekend; one thing is for certain, this time is meant for having fun and celebrating. As such, ensure that your older friends or family have all the relevant facilities to celebrate, relax and, most importantly, have fun.
