Walk to School Month for a Caregiver for the Elderly in Greenville, PA

Are you taking care of an elderly loved one? Do you have a child that goes to school? If so, then Walk to School Month could be something to consider when it comes to providing home care for your loved one.

As a caregiver, you might not think about all of the little things that matter in life, the things that can seem to take up too much time, but going for a walk is a great way for people to get exercise, no matter what their age. It’s also a great way for families to form bonds.

This year, why not consider taking your loved one out for a walk to school. Of course, if school is several miles away from home, then it’s not going to be a reasonable request, especially if you’re already pressed for time between running around getting your kids ready for school and then rushing over to check on your loved one, and then getting to work.

What about if you hired a home care provider? Would that free up some time for you to take care of all of those other things in life? Would that give you some time to spend parking a little closer to your child’s school, with your loved one, and the walking the rest of the way?

Walking to school is a great way to have your loved one and child spend some quality time together. You can all talk about what they will be doing in school that day, if there are any activities that they know about coming up, and even the friends that they have in school, even friends that you don’t know about yet.

Children are often only exposed to their grandparents, older aunts or uncles, even great-aunts and great uncles, through family get together that don’t give them the best opportunity to really bond.

It’s Walk to School Month and whether you are the primary caregiver for your loved one or have an in home care provider, consider taking one morning and walking to school with you all together. Even a short walk from the parking lot to the school doors can allow you to spend quality time with the most important people in your life.

It’s the little moments that can make the greatest memories, so don’t overlook any opportunity to help forge a stronger bond between your loved ones, both old and young.
