As everyone knows, the population is getting older, which means that more grandparents are moving in with their children or grandchildren. There are many things that you can do to make their lives just a little bit easier when making the switch. Even if they aren't moving in and you live close to them, there are also many things you can do in that situation as well. Home stairlifts are helpful, but there are many other things that you can add to your list.
Do their grocery shopping.
If they are not able to move around very easily, then completing their grocery shopping for them can be a lifesaver. It may only take you about 30 minutes, but for them much longer. You can buy exactly what they need, and even ask them to make a list.
Bulk cook some of their meals.
They might not be able to make themselves healthy meals as well, so helping them with their cooking can be very helpful. You can bulk cook their meals and then they can just pop them in the microwave or oven easily and have a full meal for themselves. Check this site for bulk meal recipes.
Clean their home.
Cleaning their home can also be a lifesaver for them. They may not be able to bend over very easily or pick things up very easily. Just doing this once a week or a big cleaning once a month is very important. Just stopping by to tidy up is important as well.
Check up on them.
Probably the most important thing that you can do is checking up on your loved ones as often as you can. Just stopping by may be very important to them. You never know if it may get too hot in their home, too cold, too dirty or if something has happened to them such as a fall. Also, we are nearing the holiday season so just checking in and seeing how they are doing is nice as well.
Make sure that their heat works.
It's getting colder outside, and with that means that they may need their furnace checked. They may not have checked on their furnace since the year before or even years before that, so this is especially important.
