Please check on the elderly. πŸ’™

Several winters ago I was contacted by an elderly lady in McDonough interested in selling her home.

When I visited her, I was surprised to find that she was not running central heat. She told me that the pilot light on her furnace was out and she had no idea how to light it. She had been using a small electric space heater to keep warm, huddled in the back of her home with the door shut to the rest of the house.

During this bitter cold snap, please make it a priority to check on elderly neighbors and family.

The elderly, many whom live on a tight budget, may be reluctant to run their furnace due to high heating costs. Or they may be averse to having their furnace serviced properly due to maintenance cost concerns.

The fact is that the elderly are cold intolerant and are vulnerable to sudden temperature changes. Older adults often make less body heat because of a slower metabolism and less physical activity.

It doesn’t take freezing temperatures for seniors to develop hypothermia, which sets in when a person’s body temperature drops below 95Β° F. A mere 60Β°F environment can result in a senior’s body temperature dipping dangerously low.

Confirm the home is being heated properly, that they are wearing the right clothing, and so on.

Checking in on older adults helps them feel connected and lets them know you care. It also gives you an opportunity to spot potential issues and help them get assistance if they need it.

Southern Grace Hospice was founded by a nurse with a passion to change end of life care. While working as a nurse for several other large hospice companies, she often found herself limited in the care she could provide for her patients and their families. Many times, the care her families needed and deserved was limited by leaders who were not focused on patient care, but instead on profit margins and corporate gain. Day after day, she prayed that her patients would one day be able to receive the care that she desired to provide. As she continued to pray, God blessed her with the vision of Southern Grace Hospice, a hospice that is truly patient centered, a hospice where employees are encouraged to provide extraordinary care, and a hospice that serves as a pillar in our community.

We at Southern Grace Hospice not only take care of those with a terminal illness, but we strive to uplift and serve our community and its citizens in all walks of life. We are a hospice that focuses on life and living instead of death and dying. We employ the most elite healthcare providers, and we care for our employees like family. In turn, our employees treat their patients like family. Our team members do not view the care we provide as β€œwork”, but instead a ministry in which we can serve and better the lives of those around us. Southern Grace Hospice was born to β€œBear ye one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2). With the lowest staff-to-patient ratios in the area, we are able to spend more time with our patients and strive to go the extra mile.

We take pride in focusing on the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our patients and families. Their overall wellness is our top priority. Because we are not profit driven, we are able to provide extra services such as arts and crafts, music therapy, pet therapy, and we are the only hospice in the area with a full-time therapist on staff. Because we have leaders who truly care and have the desire to serve, we are committed to delivering compassionate and holistic end of life care. We have no desire to become the biggest hospice provider. We only desire to maintain our reputation of being the best.πŸ’™

Tips on how to manage grief
in the New Year by Heather Stang, Contributor at mindfulnessandgrief.com

| Tip #5 of 5 |
Steady your mind with meditation.Β 

The human brain is rarely fully present, and this is especially true when we are grieving. Part of us wants to fast forward and leave this awful time behind, but an even bigger part wants to turn around and sprint back to the time when our loved one was still alive. The reality, of course, is that we can’t control the passing of time, but we can control what we do with our attention. In the meditation world, we call this bouncing around β€œmonkey mind”, and although it is just aΒ side-effect of being human, it rarely reduces our suffering. There are countless ways you can learn to tame your mind withΒ meditation, but I find that in the early days, months and even years of grief,Β focusing meditationΒ practices can beΒ  especially helpful. Try this: with your eyes open or closed, turn your attention toward your breath. As you breathe in, silently say to yourself – In. As you breathe out, silently say to yourself – Out. Do this over and over each time you breathe, for 3-5 minutes. When your monkey mind wanders off, find your breath again and start over. It doesn’t matter how often you need to begin again. After a few minutes, you may feel calmer and more in control of your own mind.πŸ’™

| Tip #4 of 5 |
Prioritize your grief-work with your new calendar.

Instead of just scheduling things you have to do, use your new calendar to plan what you need to do to support yourself this year. While none of us have a crystal ball, many people find holidays and anniversaries especially challenging. Record them on your calendar, and plan how you want to spend those special days.

Whether scheduling coffee with a supportive friend on your loved one’s birthday or gathering a group of survivors together to reminisce on the anniversary of their death, knowing what you are going to do on these special grief-days may help reduce your anxiety.

You can also plan ahead to attend grief support groups and memorial events through your local hospice or grief group. Even if the groups don’t start for a while, get them on your calendar now, before work and social obligations take over. You can also block off self-care time for a massage, meditation, journaling, or just free time to do as you wish.πŸ’™

Tips on how to manage grief

| Tip #3 of 5 |
Know that you are not leaving your loved oneΒ  behind.Β 
When you cross the threshold of a new yearΒ without your special person by your side, it can feel like you are leaving them behind. That isn’t the case. Yes, the annual change of the calendar is a marker that time is passing, but you will never forget your special person, no matter how many years go by. Take some time out early this year to reflect on the ways you carry your special person with you. What habits, likes, dislikes, hobbies, or mannerisms do you share with them? What are your favorite memories of your time together? If they are a blood relative, in what ways do you look like them? They have left their mark on your heart, and that will never go away.πŸ’™

| Tip #2 of 5 |
Focus on self-care over self-improvement.
This year, you may want to skip the typical New Year’s resolutions and instead, focus on self-care for your grieving mind, body, and spirit. Simple things like getting good sleep, eating nourishing food, and exercising a little bit each day will help your body and mind support you during loss, but do these things with an attitude of self-care instead of self-improvement, which is often implied in our resolutions. Don’t add to your suffering by trying to attain an unrealistic goal. Instead, treat yourself as you would treat a beloved friend in the same position. πŸ’™

| Tip #1 of 5 |
Create your own mantra to replace β€œHappy New Year.” 
If you are like most grieving people, the idea of being happy is a bridge too far from where you are right now, but since you are going to hear these words, again and again, you may as well incorporate them into your self-care practice.Β Β  Instead of feeling bad for not feeling happy, or angry that someone would assume you could feel happy, use these three ubiquitous words as aΒ Β  reminder to send yourself compassion. Try this: Each time you see or hear β€œHappy New Year,”  offer yourself words of kindness that resonate with you. For example, β€œMay I treat myself with kindness this year,” or β€œMay I have a Compassionate New Year,” or simply β€œThis is hard and I am doing my best.” This not only puts you back in theΒ driver’s seat so you have a modicum of control over your experience but is a great bell ofΒ Β Β  awareness that can remind you to take care of yourself.πŸ’™
