In the News…

Elderly woman who had skin cancer in Vancouver, BC

Recently, Comfort Keepers’ own Heather Martin wrote a piece featured in the Peace Arch News. The article, titled Maintaining wellbeing during senior isolation, gives tips and resources to seniors on how to keep area seniors protected and connected during this unusual time.

Some activities she mentions that can be done with a senior in you life are:

  • Read suspense or romance novels out loud
  • Order an herb garden online, and watch it grow
  • Send your senior a coffee or tea of the week
  • Order supplies from an online crafts store for your loved one’s favorite hobby or something fun and new
  • Have your senior narrate parts of their life for you. Write down the memories and create a booklet with photos for you all to cherish
  • Watch classic TV shows from childhood together and talk about it
  • Have fun with adult colouring books or paint by numbers
