Even residents in Fallbrook Memory Care Facility are looking forward to 2022 where they can improve their ways for a better life moving forward. With new beginnings filled with hope and plans, we have New Year tips that will help you welcome 2022.
Why Plan Ahead?
Planning ahead is important as it allows you to prepare, improve, and have better management of things especially if health protocols are still in place due to the COVID19 pandemic.
Setting targets and goals for the New Year encourages growth and improvement. It also gives the opportunity to examine if you have been sticking to your targets. This and below are a few highlights of why it is important to plan ahead.
- Goals to Reach
When you plan ahead, this gives you objectives that you want to achieve. In addition, this helps you work on ways towards meeting your goals.
- Assessing Risks
Advance planning gives you the confidence to take risks leading you ahead of the ball game. Besides, it also helps identify, categorize, and prioritize risks. This way, you can create a response plan.
- Encourages Proactiveness
Planning ahead lets you take the right action when faced with challenges and adversities. It makes you ready to respond to challenges and accepts changes.
- Improved Performance
Being prepared improves performance. By having a clear idea of what to do next, life will be better with less stress.
Tips for Starting the New Year Off with a Bang from Fallbrook Memory Care Facility
We at Fallbrook Memory Care Facility encourage you to write your goals and objectives for the New Year. Although some of this may change along the way, it is important to give yourself a good starting point.
Remember all the commitments you have already made and fill your calendar. Having a planner will make it easier for you to be organized and be prepared. Doing this will help you remember things easily.
Also, write your projects for the year. Do you intend to update your room or establish a light exercise regimen? You can include things you want to accomplish this year.
Health and Medical Appointments
Keep your medical calendar up to date by filling it in beforehand. Sometimes you tend to forget your healthcare and doctor’s appointments, so writing down the dates in your calendar keeps you from missing your appointments.
Never miss a meal by writing it down. Stick to your mealtime to build a routine. People with dementia may refuse to eat or lose interest in food but eating a balanced diet on time will help prevent unnecessary weight loss or less muscle strength.
