1. Why Our CNAs and Caregivers Love What They Do

    The road to old age can be one that’s loaded with happiness and joy, or fraught with stress and pain. Realistically, it’s a combination of the two for most people.

    Helping the Elderly With Spring Cleaning

    For those of us who are lucky enough to live in Honolulu, the spring season isn’t much of a change from what we’re used to. We get sun every day and we don’t have yearly snowfalls to remind us of how precious that is. But even if we haven’t noticed, spring has indeed arrived, and with that, a yearly ritual that many people commit to every year — spring cleaning. Spring is a traditional t…Read More

  3. Why Our Elderly Residents Love Wilson Senior Living

    It’s safe to say that most people, if given the choice, are reluctant to resign themselves to a senior living center.

Indeed, convincing your elderly loved ones to make the change can be extremely difficu…Read More

  4. What Are a Caregiver’s Duties?

At Wilson Care, we’re always looking for qualified candidates for our CNA jobs. But one of the questions we hear the most is “what are a care…Read More

  5. Lessons That Can Be Learned From the Elderly

    Senior citizens are often the victim of harsh and unfair stereotypes. Too often, our elderly population is depicted in media as being clueless and out of touch, needing the kind of babysitting that small children receive on a regular basis. In reality, senior citizens have more life experience than the majority of the world’s population. Even if their bodies are frail and their minds weakened ov…Read More

  6. Giving Experiences Instead of Gifts to Seniors This Year

    Every year, the list of physical possessions we need seems to grow ever smaller. While getting new toys on Christmas was one of the best parts of childhood, many people in adulthood don’t have a huge need for more things — partly because they’ve acquired so much throughout their life, and partly because they have an income to support themselves. Recent studies have shown that giving people e…Read More

  7. Great Board Games for the Elderly and Disabled

    Everyone grows up cultivating various hobbies, interests, and lifestyles. Many of these can be practiced for a lifetime, but there are also many pursuits that require a capable body and youthful energy. Unfortunately, for many senior citizens, this means that many of their favorite things growing up are no longer an option. No matter how healthy you keep your body, age is an inevitability and even…Read More

  8. Why You Should Consider Caregiver Jobs During the Holidays

    The holiday season is upon us! That means a lot of things — endless pumpkins and spooky costumes, turkeys and stuffing galore, and of course, the arrival of Christmas and the season of goodwill to men. During Christmastime, we’re always looking for ways to give back to others. While this is a habit we should try to cultivate all year, many people get busy and it can be nice to have a seasonal …Read More

  9. Halloween Festivities That Can Be Enjoyed By Seniors

    Whoever said that getting older means you can’t enjoy the fun stuff in life? Specifically, who says you can’t go all-in on fun Halloween festivities even in your elder years? We certainly don’t believe that seniors are exempt from celebrating Halloween at Wilson Care, and even if your body is no longer what it once was, there are plenty of activities that are fun for people of all ages and b…Read More

  10. Foods to Avoid in Your Elderly Years

    In terms of dietary choices, the seniors of today have been through quite a wild ride. On the older edge of the spectrum, seniors in their 80s and 90s will have been born in the 30s and 40s, before America was permanently changed by the widespread proliferation of fast food and artificial ingredients. Even in the 50s where most 70-somethings were born, the food landscape of America was highly diff…Read More
