Rediscovering Your Passion in the Golden Years: How We Can Help
As the years have passed and your body has experienced decreased mobility and energy, chances are your favorite pastimes have slowly drifted to the wayside. Instead of getting up every morning and exploring your passions, you feel like you are too limited to do what you really want to do. This is no way to live – especially in your golden years.
At Connecticut In-Home Assistance, we believe that these years should be some of the best of your life, and we are here to help. Whether you are passionate about gardening, exploring the great outdoors, letting your creativity reign, getting out and socializing, or nurturing your musical side, our homemaker and companion services will be there every step of the way. Here are just a few examples of how we will help you (or your loved one) rediscover your passion:
For the Gardening Guru
There is something about getting down in the dirt that makes you light up inside, but as the years have passed, planting your favorite flowers or veggies and pulling the weeds just isn’t as easy as it used to be. With our homemaker services, you can still be the gardening genius and plan out your garden to perfection – one of our caregivers can help you dig the holes, water the plants, and even harvest your crop when the time comes.
For the Outdoor Enthusiast
Nothing cleanses your soul quite like soaking in the views from the top of a mountain; unfortunately, your aging joints just don’t let hikes happen anymore. We won’t be able to carry you up the mountain… but we can drive you to some amazing views and be a helping hand on some short and sweet excursions throughout Connecticut.
For the Arts and Crafts Lover
When you really want to enjoy life, you pull out the arts and crafts supplies and get busy. But getting to the store to buy the items you need and setting up everything is not quite as simple as it sounds. With our companion services, all these little details can be taken care of for you so you can let your creativity shine. And yes, we can even thread your sewing needle for you.
For the Social Butterfly
You are at your best when you are out socializing with your friends. You love meeting new people and can’t imagine a life where you don’t get to go out frequently. With our homemaker services, even if you can’t drive, you can still keep up with your busy calendar of events. Not only can we provide your transportation, we can even be an escort if needed.
For the Music Fanatic
If rhythms and chords get your heart pumping, there is no reason this passion should ever dissipate. Sure, you can always listen to music in your home, but what about enjoying a live concert or playing an instrument? Don’t worry; our caregivers will be able to take you wherever you desire, and can even help you set up your music stand if you want to dust off that old guitar.
