Creating Vision Boards with Your Aging Loved Ones

By Roz Jones

The process of aging can be difficult for both the person going through it and their caregivers. As our loved ones age, it’s important to find ways to connect with them and help them maintain a positive outlook on life. One great way to do this is by creating vision boards together.

What is a vision board? A vision board is a collection of images, words, and phrases that represent what you want to achieve in your life. The process of creating a vision board is a fun and easy way to reconnect with your loved one and get them excited about the future. Plus, it’s a great way to stimulate their creative side!

Here’s how to get started:

1. Gather Your Supplies

To create a vision board, you’ll need some basic supplies like a poster board, scissors, glue, and markers or crayons. You can also look for special collage kits at your local craft store. Once you have your supplies, clear off a large work surface where you can spread everything out.

2. Collect Images and Words

Next, start collecting images and words that represent what you want to achieve. These can be pictures from magazines, photos you print from the internet, or even personal handwritten messages. If you’re working with an aging loved one, try to focus on positive themes like happiness, travel, family, or friends. 

3. Create Your Vision Board

Once you have all of your materials gathered, it’s time to start putting your vision board together! Encourage your loved one to be creative and have fun with it. They can use as many or as few images as they like, and they can arrange them however they like on the poster board. 

4. Hang It Up and Enjoy!

When your vision board is complete, find a spot to hang it up where you’ll see it every day. This serves as a reminder of all the wonderful things you’re working towards in your life. Every time you look at it, take a moment to reflect on your goals and imagine achieving them. Achievement feels that much sweeter when you’ve got a beautiful reminder hanging on your wall! 

The process of aging can be difficult for both the person going through it and their caregivers. However, by finding ways to connect with our loved ones and help them stay positive, we can make the journey a little bit easier for everyone involved. Creating vision boards together is a great way to reconnect with aging loved ones and get them excited about the future. Plus, it’s a fun activity that stimulates their creative side! So gather up some supplies and give it a try today!

Setting and Achieving Goals with Your Aging Loved One

By Roz Jones

When it comes to working with clients or even your aging loved one, one of the most important things you can do is help them set and achieve goals. Doing so not only helps them improve their quality of life, but it also helps build trust between you and them. Here are a few tips on how to set and achieve goals with your clients or aging loved ones..

1. Define the goal together: 

The first step in setting a goal with your loved one is to sit down together and figure out what it is they want to achieve. This can be anything from quitting smoking to eating healthier to getting more exercise. Once you have a general idea of what the goal is, you can start to work on creating a plan to help your loved one achieve it.

2. Set realistic milestones: 

Once you have a goal in mind, it’s important to start breaking it down into smaller, more manageable pieces. This will help your client stay on track and see their progress over time. For example, if their goal is to quit smoking, a milestone could be going one week without having a cigarette.

3. Create a plan of action: 

Once you have the goal and milestones set, it’s time to create a plan of action. This should include specific steps that your client will take in order to reach their goal. For example, if they’re trying to quit smoking, their plan of action might involve joining a smoking cessation program and making a commitment to not smoke around other people.

4. Check in regularly: 

It’s important to check in with your loved one regularly to see how they’re doing and offer any support or assistance they may need. This not only shows that you care about their well-being, but it also allows you to make any necessary adjustments to the plan if things aren’t going as expected.

Setting and achieving goals with your aging loved ones is an important part of providing quality care. By taking the time to sit down and define what they want to accomplish, you can help them build trust while also improving their quality of life. Use the tips above to get started!
