Right at Home caregivers know how important it is to help clients seek out a variety of appropriate, mentally challenging activities. At home, they might enjoy a game of checkers, crafts, or listening to music. The Right at Home Caregiver can also provide transportation so clients can visit a garden, spend time with friends, or go to a museum.

For seniors with high blood pressure, diet makes all the difference. Healthy foods can help your loved one maintain a healthy weight. And following a low-sodium diet is usually especially important. In-home caregivers know that this can be a challenge. The solution? Preparing delicious meals with alternative seasonings. Your loved one will be pleased to find out that unsalted food doesn't have to be bland. #NationalHealthyHeartMonth
