Saskatoon Home Support has created a new initiative to get their home care charges out of the house with outings and activities days, helping the elderly explore the world again.
Saskatoon, SK -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/19/2014 -- Elderly people are living for longer than ever thanks to our increased understanding of nutrition and medical care, and this enhanced aging can lead to greater dependence on others later in life. Unfortunately the pace of life has also increased dramatically in the modern era, and having time to tend to elderly relatives is increasingly hard to come by. In Saskatoon, the elderly have been served for the past 25 years by Saskatoon Home Support, an elderly home care service. Now, they are helping the elderly get back out in the world with outings and activity days.
The new outings and activities service (http://saskatoonhomesupport.ca/) will see the expert professional carers of Saskatoon Home Support collect elderly individuals in mobility-assisted vehicles and escort them to medical appointments, church services, and to airports, as well as organizing fun club meetings and events, escorting individuals to plays and concerts and more.
The events and outings service is an extension of their already comprehensive homecare system (http://saskatoonhomesupport.ca/About), which includes meals, housekeeping, shopping and personal care, all of which tailored to the specific needs of the individual in question.
A spokesperson for Saskatoon Home Support explained, "Elderly people spend so much time in their homes, and while our first priority is to ensure that their time is as comfortable, stimulating and enjoyable as possible, we understand that no one should be confined within four walls. The more active a lifestyle an elderly person can maintain, the better their quality of life. As such we have committed to helping elderly people enjoy their lives out in the open, and help them access fulfilling activities, social events and important occasions. Simply get in touch to see how we could help improve the life of your loved ones."
