In today’s society, many people disregard haircuts as a means of brightening up someone’s day. Contrary to popular belief, a quick cut and style can revitalize an individual’s mood and help promote confidence in the way they look. Creating unique hairstyles can be just as fun and soothing for seniors as it is for anyone else! At HarborChase, we strive to help you help the senior in your life feel confident in themselves and ensure they are not afraid to display their personality!
When the senior in your life gets a new pet, it’s an exciting and heartwarming occasion. Your loved one will now have a new friend to create a bond with; bringing meaningful memories and trusted companionship.
Although having a pet is fantastic, you’re going to have to help your loved one train the pet to learn where in the house they are allowed, how to walk properly on a leash, and other routines they will have to adjust to! At HarborChase, we know that training a pet isn’t always the easiest task, so we’ve decided to share a few helpful tips that you can share with your loved one to help them along the way!
The care for Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other memory-related deficiencies in senior living communities is on the rise. When looking for a care community for your loved ones, it's essential to find a community that is passionate about the well-being of its residents, well versed in the different care programs and medications, and the willingness to personalize the care they provide to each individual. It is easy to feel overwhelmed by the number of choices in your area, what’s covered by your loved one's insurance, or even where to start when you are touring communities. Here are a few questions you can ask your memory care community when looking for the perfect place for your loved one to call home.
As loved ones grow older, it is crucial for them to exercise their minds as much as their bodies. Education is a fundamental process of life that does not stop when we’re at retirement age, and as there are many different learning styles, there are many ways to continue acquiring new knowledge. Lifelong learning is the pursuit of wisdom through continuing education. Seniors may seek education classes online, through local colleges, or other public communal spaces such as the library. On one’s own, they can also practice cognitive care exercises to keep themselves mentally active.
HarborChase would like to commemorate the grand opening of our new community by sharing the story of a historically prominent figure in the community, Dr. Phillips.
The new community will be named after Dr. Phillips to celebrate his contributions to the state of Florida and the local communities that he has worked to help. By making revolutionary strides to go beyond his duties, Dr. Phillips has made lasting impacts in the Central Florida area, and HarborChase is proud to recognize him for his efforts.
