As a result, of COVID-19 people have been inside their homes for several weeks. Since people are now working from home and doing everything in one place, many have lost track of their routines. Visiting Angels South Elgin explains how seniors can start establish a routine at home. 

The routines that Visiting Angels suggests are simple. For example, setting a time to sleep and a time to wake up will help start and end any day. Some seniors might have a difficult time winding down at the end of the day. If that is the case, journaling and tea can work wonders for calming down and getting ready for bed. On the other hand, seniors could also struggle with waking up at a scheduled time. To get up in the morning, many people think of something that makes them excited for the mornings like a nice cup of coffee. 

Another simple routine deals with clothes. Visiting Angels brings up how seniors should change out of their pajamas. Though it is nice to be around the house in comfortable clothes all day, getting dressed can motivate seniors for the rest of their day.
