As a provider of home care nursing, we specialize in taking care of not only the physical health of seniors but also their mental health. Here are our expert tips on how to reduce your risk of depression as you get older:
- Keep in touch with your friends and family.
You can use social media to stay regularly updated and to communicate with them from time to time. You can also prepare a little backyard picnic and invite them to your place or go out and watch movies together.
- One common reason for depression in seniors is when they lose their independence.
It is not easy to accept that you can’t do simple tasks easily anymore. So, it is important to stay healthy and be physically active to maintain your independence longer.
- Look for a home caregiver.
While your friends and family can help ward off feelings of loneliness and isolation, having a companion every day can make a big difference if you are living alone. They can keep you company plus help you with your tasks.
- Find time for activities you enjoy, such as sports and playing musical instruments.
You can also learn new skills you find interesting, such as crafting, gardening, and baking. You can also consider volunteering in your local community.
