What’s Happened at Dixon Rehabilitation
Creating a daily schedule can be a great tool for improving the mental and physical health of older adults. A schedule can help to keep priorities top of mind, can help ensure things like taking medications are not forgotten and it can improve sleep by establishing regular wake times and sleep times. For many seniors, moving into a senior community is the best way to find the support to create and maintain a schedule, as well as to have access to the programs that fill the daily schedule with hobbies and activities they enjoy. Whether you live in a senior community or at home alone, here are some tips to creating a successful schedule:
- Establish a set time to wake up
- Include time for personal hygiene
- Set mealtimes and snack times
- Include time for exercise
- Include social time
- Set a scheduled bedtime
At Dixon Rehabilitation and Health Care Center, residents enjoy a wide variety of activities and programs to fill their days as they pursue their recovery and rehabilitation journey. Each day can be as unique or as familiar as they like!
