If your grandparent lives with you because they cannot live full-time on their own and you are taking a weekend off, you need to ensure they will be well cared for while you are away. Even if you do not have anyone to come stay with them, you can still do this. Below are 2 things that will work great for you and your grandparent.
Contact a few local restaurants and schedule food delivery to your home. This way your grandparent will not have to cook any meals on their own. Most restaurants will be glad to do this. Sit down with your grandparent and ask them what food they would like to be delivered. Take the list to the restaurant and set up a schedule. You can use more than one restaurant so your grandparent can choose from different types of food that they like. For example, if they like Vietnamese food, they could be offered things like:
- Bánh canh (soup cake)
- Bánh hoi (noodle dish)
- Bún Thịt Nướng (noodle dish)
- Bánh bao (dumpling)
- Bánh bèo (rice cake)
If your grandparent is on a strict diet and/or allergic to something, make sure you tell the restaurants what they should not eat.
You can install a video system in your home that would allow you to see your grandparent anywhere in your house no matter where you are outside your home. The video system is installed in your home, and then you can see the video from a laptop, tablet, or even your smartphone where you are. You have to install software on a laptop, and download an app on your tablet or smartphone for it to work for you.
If you do not have the skills to install this, then you should hire a professional to do this for you. This will ensure it will work for you. If you see something wrong on the video, you could call someone in the town, such as the police or a hospital.
There are also wireless video systems that have batteries. This is really easy to set up, and you could do this yourself. They usually come with more cameras so you will have enough to put in all room.
If you do this, you can have fun while you are out and not having worry about them has much. Call your grandparent too to help you be okay.
