Daylight Savings and Seniors

Daylight Savings and Seniors

We have officially sprung one hour forward for Daylight savings! While having longer days is great, the time change can adversely affect some people, especially seniors.

  • Sleep

One of the biggest problems is that sleep patterns may be interrupted. Even minor changes in sleep schedules can cause grogginess and loss of mental acuity. Besides sleeping at night, you should also consider naps. If your senior loved one has a napping schedule, it is important to stick to the schedule and not over or under nap.

  • Driving

Tired drivers and an increase in people late for work become a hazard on the roads right after daylight savings.

  • Meals

It is important to keep elderly loves ones on a fixed eating schedule. It can be difficult to convince some seniors to eat when they are not hungry, but skipping meals can prolong the adjustment period. Try to maintain a regular schedule, even if you decide to go with smaller meals or lighter fare.

  • Medications

Taking prescription medications at the proper times is crucial to senior health. So make sure that schedules are adjusted to account for the time change.

While most people most people can adjust after a few days or extra cups of coffee, it may take longer for seniors to get used to the time change. Keeping to their usual routine will greatly reduce any negative affects the change may have.


What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.
Cindi E
It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
