SENIOR Report

Senior Travel in the Summer
Summer arrives , and the urge to travel comes right along with it ! If you are planning a trip with your senior loved one , remember that travel , delightful as it is , can also be stressful . Preparedness is the key to having a trip where everyone is having an enjoyable time .
Here are some guidelines to help with your summer planning : Start your outing at a calmer part of the day ; Plan the day to allow ample time to decompress from each activity ; Set aside time for a nap or pause in the day , if necessary ; Be ready to change your plans if your loved one is agitated or anxious ; Choose quieter locations with fewer people and less waiting time ; Plan open-ended , flexible activities that are paced according to your senior ’ s needs ; Make sure that restrooms can accommodate any limitations ; Be aware of the weather and climate , and its impact on your plans ; and Keep in mind that it is not a failure on anyone ’ s part if your senior loved one is overwhelmed by what ’ s planned .
If you are planning a trip or outing and are unsure if it ’ s something your loved one will enjoy , consider whether they need to or want to join you . It ’ s ok not always to travel together : you do not need to feel guilty parting ways if it becomes clear that your senior loved one would benefit most from not participating in your plans .
Sometimes , the most beneficial choice is for your senior loved one to remain in the comfort of their home with a skilled caregiver they trust while you attend an event . At Home Senior Care ’ s professional elder care specialists help families like yours navigate these situations by offering quality home care for seniors with trust , respect , and compassion .

“ It ’ s a beautiful place . Very friendly and pleasant people and staff . Love my apartment .
Jimmy Ellie
SCAC Adoptable Pets
Jimmy is a one to two year old Rottweiler mix who has had a rough past due to neglect , but once he is comfortable with his people he is the sweetest boy . He could possibly live with a calm female dog or a dog savvy cat . Due to his timid personality a quieter home with children over thirteen would be best .
The sweet young girl ’ s name is Ellie . She is a one to two year old Walker Hound who was brought to us from a neglectful home . She has come a long way with her personality but can still be a bit timid with new people . Once she is comfortable she is a happy-go-lucky girl ! Due to her nervous personality we are recommending children over ten .
Second Chance Animal Center is located at 1779 Route 7A in Arlington . Call 802-375-2898 or visit 2ndchanceanimalcenter . org for more information . Be sure to call ahead to relinquish an animal to ensure that they have space .
Won ’ t you be my neighbor ?”
