Honoring others through interaction
by David Hachmeister, Owner, Care & Comfort at Home for Seniors and Veterans
Thanks again to all who served this country. From our nation’s founding to this day, we owe so much to those who sacrificed to give birth to a new manner of government. We are especially mindful of those in our more recent families who served that our national experiment might endure.
One of the ways we honor those people is not just to remember them, but to interact with them. In Dr. Dana Suskind’s book, “30 Million Words,” we learn of the critical value of interactive learning on a small child’s brain. They will function so much better in life if they have had a loving and highly interactive adult to nurture curiosity and the neural connections that are much less available for development as we age, even just to the ripe age of four!
We think similar interaction is critical for seniors as well. If we are to stay mentally alert, interaction is extremely important. We know many of our client’s families can’t be with their elders as often as they would like, so that’s where Care and Comfort at Home for Seniors and Veterans can step in, to keep mom or dad engaged and better able to withstand the diminishment that comes in the late aging process. Whether it’s playing canasta, taking a walk, or just interacting on a nature TV show, Care and Comfort at Home for Seniors and Veterans is committed to keeping your family’s older members as well as they can be for as long as they can be.
