Today we’re talking about SAD. We don’t mean the emotion, but a disorder called Seasonal Affective Disorder. SAD is a real disorder, a form of depression linked to the change in season, specifically the fall season. The temperatures dropping may chill the bones, and when the clock gets set back and hour, the day feels shorter with sunsets even in the late afternoon. For your parent it may feel like they are living in a dark cave for the next couple of months, and this can lead to the depressive episodes known as SAD. Our elderly in home care team has a few suggestions on how to take the SAD out of mom or dad’s life and to add a touch of happy.
If you notice your loved one is suffering from SAD, elderly in home care can help them (and you!) through the fall and winter months. With a few adjustments to lifestyle, your loved one can go from SAD to HAPPY.
