Supporting Seniors to Stop Smoking

supporting-seniors-to-stop-smoking

Bad habits ruin any good effort. An unhealthy habit can put a senior’s life at risk – even when they are undergoing medical intervention or receiving home care services. As someone who truly cares about them, we hate seeing our senior loved ones putting their lives at risk with every smoke they inhale.

The good news is that you can support your senior loved one to quit smoking. It may not be easy but as long as you are firm on the commitment, your loved one will feel it too. Here are some strategies you can apply.
    1. Removing any addiction triggers – notice what triggers smoking in your loved one. The factor could be an event, a feeling, a place, or a person. When this is known, help them stay away from such.
    2. Carrying snacks – when the cravings kick in, having a substitute makes sense. Bring healthy snacks for your seniors. Instead of reaching out for a smoke, they can munch on something tasty and healthy.
    3. Engaging in hobbies – or trying out new activities can keep their mind occupied. These tasks can be productive, too.

The state of Hawaii has determined that most caregivers are considered employees and in order to LEGALLY hire and pay your OWN caregiver, you must have a company established with State and Federal tax ID numbers. In addition to their hourly pay you must also pay for Workers Compensation Insurance, Temporary Disability Insurance, General Liability Insurance, and if the caregiver works more than 20 hours per week you must also provide medical insurance for each caregiver. Therefore; choosing an established agency such as Helping Hands Healthcare is an affordable and easy solution that will save you time, money, and relief from being in violation of State and Federal Labor Laws.
