The springtime brings a sense of renewal, along with sunny days, colorful plants, and aromatic breezes. This is the time to help the senior in your life get some fresh air after being cooped up indoors all winter long. It is a relief to feel the sun on your skin and smell those sweet Georgia peaches! It can be a little challenging to find activities that you and mom, or dad, can do outside together. That is why here at CaraVita Home Care we created a list of 5 fun spring activities for seniors in Home Care in Atlanta, Georgia.
CaraVita Home Care works with Amy's Place, a Memory Care Café, to help with residents who may experience memory loss. For these individuals and their loved ones, Amy's Place offers socialization and education. They provide support groups for caregivers, educational events, materials, and resources. Caring Together in Hope founded Amy's Place. Caring Together in Hope is a non-profit organization inspired by a caregiver named Carol Troxel Hammitt. Carol once stated, "This isn't easy. It could be one of the hardest things we have ever accomplished." Carol was a caregiver for four young children when she was very young herself. She practiced private duty nursing and became a registered nurse until she eventually developed Lewy Body Dementia and passed away four months after diagnosis.

Jazzmine Patterson has been working for CaraVita Home Care for a year now. She has shown herself to be a dependable and compassionate caregiver. Recently, she was nominated by a family member in Roswell, Ga for the care and attention she gave to their mother. The client’s relative even stated the following:
Connecting never goes out of style and seniors are making their presence known on the Internet. The Pew Research Center has shown that Internet use among those 65 and older grew a staggering 150% between 2009 and 2011, the largest growth in any demographic group. Additionally, their 2012 study showed that of those that go online, 71% do so daily and 34% use social media regularly. If social media is a house party, seniors might have shown up fashionably late but they are here to stay late and have a good time. Seniors are enthusiastic when it comes to staying connected with friends and family.
