Capital City Nurses celebrates Grandparents Day With Extra Care For Your Loved Ones

A wonderful holiday to add to your family celebrations is National Grand parents Day. This annual day of celebration in the United States is held on the first Sunday after Labor Day, which means the date changes from year to year. This day of recognition was officially recognized as a holiday by US President Jimmy Carter in 1979.

In 2022, National Grandparents Day will be celebrated on September13th. This is a wonderful day to plan a Grandparents Day event and celebrate the life of the amazing people in your family. If you do not have a grandparent, one of the initiatives of Marian McQuade, an early activist for seniors, is to adopt a Grandparent.This is an amazing opportunity for both the senior as well as the family.

How to Celebrate Grandparents Day with In-Home Care

Many seniors throughout the Potomac, MD, area live in their own homes. They might not have families close by to celebrate the day.Regardless of where you may be, the in-home care experts at Capital City Nurses can help the family to make this a memorable occasion.

Our in-home care staff can work with the family to determine what the senior might like to do. With our senior companion program, our staff gets to know the senior and can provide insight into their favorite foods, where they like to go, and any hobbies or interests they have. When the family is not involved in the senior's life on a daily basis, this information can help to plan a very special celebration in honor of their grandparent or grandparents.

Included in our geriatric home care services is transportation, which means we can assist the family in coordinating a day out, a surprise lunch or dinner, or even a trip to a favorite sporting event,cultural activity, or time at a park or location in the community.

The caregiver from Capital City Nurses can also provide the family information with ideas based on their conversations with your love done. Part of our professional senior care giving services is spending time getting to know your loved one and interacting with them in discussions about topics of interest to the senior. In this way, our in-home health care professionals can get great insight into what the seniors would enjoy.

Care Throughout the Year

Our senior companion program and caregiver services are available all year round for families in Potomac, Md.
