Dear Rachel,

picture-steveJune marks the official beginning of summer – BBQs, reunions, picnics and simply getting outside more all increase our opportunities for socializing with our family, friends, and neighbors. The importance of socialization is critical for our overall wellness – people who socialize more have been shown to be healthier than their isolated counterparts. In this edition of the Fedelta newsletter, we'll take a look at the importance of socialization and how to increase the opportunities for human connection in your life. Happy summer!

The Importance of Socialization

As human beings, we are designed, by nature, to seek out others and connect with each other. From smiling to a stranger we pass in the street, to developing a lifelong commitment to another person, human connection is, according to many philosophers, the very essence of life. Read more to discover why socializing is not only part of our nature, but necessary to overall health and well-being.

Helping Seniors Remain Social by Getting Them to Their Destination Safely

One of the reasons many seniors become less social as they age is because it is no longer safe for them to drive. Without the ability to easily get to church, the local senior center or even a restaurant, seniors become more isolated and lonely. Find out more about how some ways seniors are working to stay social without the car.

The Seattle area is one of the best spots in the country to spend summer – the days are typically sunny and the heat and humidity are rarely oppressive. This presents a perfect opportunity for caregivers and those they're taking care of to get out and enjoy the sights and sounds of a Seattle summer. Here are just a few ways both caregivers and seniors can enjoy summer in Seattle this year. Discover some popular ways to spend your time in Seattle this summer.             

How Fedelta Can Help
Our in-home caregivers help keep people engaged in life by providing companionship and driving them to social events, whether it's a party or just sharing a cup of coffee with a friend. They can also accompany loved ones for a walk in the neighborhood, ensuring they're safe while meeting and chatting with friends and neighbors. Also, as many of us will be doing more walking now that summer is almost here, our Foot Care program can help ensure your feet are in their best shape possible. You'll get a thorough evaluation by a nurse and any minor issues – such as calluses, corns, and ingrown toenails can be addressed immediately. If they discover a more serious issue, they can make a referral to a podiatrist.
Featured Program

Respite Care
Our Respite Care program provides a break to caregivers by taking over your caregiving duties for a while. Whether you need just a few hours to attend to your own personal needs or are taking a vacation with the family, Fedelta can provide the care your loved one needs in their home. They can ensure they receive all necessary medications, provide assistance with personal care, and can even prepare meals and provide light housekeeping, while providing companionship and conversation.

Fedelta FAQs

Fedelta Feedback

"My dad had dementia, and my step-mom was his primary caregiver. It became harder for her to care for him as his condition declined, and when she had back surgery she was unable to care for him. Our experience with Fedelta has been superior. The staff, caregivers and nurses have all been outstanding. Based on my family's experience, I know Fedelta could fulfill a wide variety of needs, whether companion care or more extensive health care. This partnership has been a match made in heaven!"   – Betty, Daughter
