In Home Care La Jolla - Firstat Nursing Services Publishes Guide- 3 Ways to Stay Healthy This Winter
Firstat Nursing Services, a San Diego in-home care agency providing caregivers in La Jolla and San Diego publishes guide to highlight strategies that will help seniors stay healthier this winter.
A Humidifier for Improved Skin and Easier Breathing - Winter months bring frigid temperatures and most people rely on heat to regulate the warmth inside the home. Unfortunately, while heat warms indoor air quickly, it’s often very dry, leading to cracked lips, dry sinuses, even bloody noses. Placing a humidifier in the bedroom or living room replaces moisture in the air, eliminating dry skin and making it more comfortable and easier to breathe. In addition, the right humidifier can provide instant relief from colds and respiratory conditions, easing symptoms and making it easier to sleep comfortably.
Food as a Natural Immunity Booster - Winter is an excellent time to grab a hot chocolate and go, but with cold, blustery winds comes the flu, sore throat and a variety of other seasonal illnesses. The best natural defense against viruses is the right diet and food choices play an important role in maintaining good health. Vitamins and minerals found in fruits and vegetables offer natural immune boosting properties that provide extra protection when it’s needed most. Dark green vegetables like spinach and kale are packed with vitamins A, C and K that in addition to enhancing immunity have been shown to protect against heart disease, diabetes, even cancer.
In Home Care - Cold weather brings shorter days and longer nights, making it more challenging for seniors living alone or with family to care for themselves. A licensed in home caregiver can provide a variety of services for helping a loved one maintain independence during the long winter season. With expertise in everything from activities of daily living to administering medications, even physical therapy, in home care is easy, convenient and peace of mind that cooking, cleaning, housekeeping and other tasks are completed safely and in a timely manner.
