Floridians peering out from their windows this morning are finding frost-tipped blades of grass and windshields thinly layered with the same. One step outside and the sight of breath from each exhale drifts and dissipates into the cool air. A wintry chill moves through the state this morning, and it feels like a far-cry from our more typical temperatures. In this much colder-than-usual weather, we are reminded of what a blessing the warmth of home can be. Being able to layer with another blanket or cozy sweater as you step out into your lanai, having personal items nearby to complete morning routines, taking time to warm up with a fresh cup of coffee or tea in a cozy chair and more make easing into this new, crisp dawn much more comfortable. These comforts of home are priceless, and the simple moments of enjoying morning rituals while having all that you need to complete them around you should not be taken for granted. Home can truly be a haven and, especially this morning, a warm shield.

Here at Aqua Home Care, we do not underestimate what it means to be able to stay in your own home once daily living care becomes necessary. Our team dedicatedly helps those seeking personal care services find needed support in order to avoid moving into a facility. Trusted caregivers from our registry travel to the homes of their clients everyday, bringing quality service right to their doorsteps. There are many benefits to having a personal caregiver you can trust nearby to assist with tasks, routines and personal needs. On mornings like this, when the frigidness can especially limit joint movement and range of motion, it is helpful to be in the compassionate presence of someone who will adjust the thermostat, bring you another blanket, prepare a warm breakfast, and assist with routines. Support such as this combined with being in your own familiar surroundings can bring such reassurance and peace of mind, and it is a treasure we find for those who seek it.

As you get ready for your day and brace, or embrace, depending on your tolerance, for the cold, we hope that the warmth of home surrounds you. For those who are finding themselves requiring daily support, our Aqua Home Care team is here to refer trusted, compassionate caregivers who will help keep you right where you are. To many, home is a safe place, a dwelling of comfort, and a protective layer against the elements. Today and always, may wherever you call home be where you want to be.
