If you are looking for something to do with a senior in the Gwinnett county area, check out the website for the Gwinnett County Senior Services. Synergy Home Care of North Georgia provides homecare services to seniors in Dacula, Suwanee, Buford,Lawrenceville, Snellville and many other areas of Gwinnett County. We encourage our caregivers to be active with their seniors whenever they can. The Senior Centers in Buford, Lawrenceville and Norcross offer a host of activities for anyone age 60 or older, and we're not talking just your typical bridge club and bingo games. These centers offer Zumba class, scrapbooking,Spanish language classes, billiards, and so much more. Oh and they have bingo too!
The next time you think having a caregiver make your mom or dad get out of the house for a few hours, just think of all the fun and social interaction they can get from some of these activities. If your loved one is not as mobile as they once were, that is ok too. Having a caregiver along can make these activities both safe and enjoyable. Nothing makes someone feel depressed and "old"like having to give up the things in life they enjoy. Having a caregiver for mom or dad can give them the freedom and independence to want to enjoy life and not simply sit in their house or apartment and do nothing.
Now how awesome is that!
Oh and if your loved one lives outside of Gwinnett county,we provide home care services to seniors in Barrow, Clarke, Forsyth, Franklin, Hall, Hart and Jackson Counties too.
