Helping Seniors Stay Active and Independent with Spring Activities

Spring is a wonderful time of year throughout the NW Washington, DC area. This is a time when the weather is warmer, the days are longer,and people of all ages are inspired to get out and get active.

Families caring for elderly loved ones often worry about seniors as the weather gets warmer. Seniors want to get out of the house and enjoy walks in the community, get involved in cleaning their homes,and work on the yard and garden. While these are all wonderful activities, they can lead to a higher chance of seniors over doing their physical exercise, which can create health issues including an increased risk of falls.

Capital City Nurses provides customized senior care services to help elderly adults enjoy their favorite spring activities. Our services range from home care services and rehab and post-op care to medication management and light housekeeping.

What are the Difficulties Faced by Seniors During the Spring Season?

Seniors who live independently or share a home with family members may attempt to do too much as the days get warmer. Our in-home care provides trained, compassionate caregivers who assist seniors with light housework, meal preparation,and general companionship care.
