This philosophy should also be used by family caregivers. Not only will Interactive Caregiving help your loved one feel healthier, happier, loved and valued, but will also enrich your lives. In order to ensure your parent has a positive outlook on life and higher cognitive functioning, you need to pay attention to every aspect of their persona.
By motivating them to become more mentally active, you ensure that your loved one lead a happier and longer life. Physical activity maintains their muscle and bone strength and helps them live more independently. By making sure your loved one maintains a healthy diet, you are ensuring that they have enough energy to be physically and mentally active and with cleaning you are providing a safe living environment for your loved one.
