July is National Ice Cream Month

Home Care in Jackson Township OH

July is National Ice Cream Month.  There is probably nothing better to do than have a cool refreshing ice cream, when the asphalt outside in the street is hot enough to fry an egg. Sit in the shade Home Care in Jackson Township OHunder a big tree and enjoy a delightful pleasure that has been making smiles for centuries.

There are dozens of exotic flavors of ice cream that are pre-mixed. Nevertheless, half of the fun is making a customized taste sensation that makes your mouth sing … Hallelujah! The way to achieve this is to start with the foundation of high quality ice cream and throw in a few more adventuresome flavors just to have a good time. Ice cream flavors decorated with great topping flavors are the way to go.

Your elders will smile, the younger ones will smile, and the professional caregivers providing senior care or elder care will get a well-deserved break.

Get these standard flavors and add a few options:

This flavor is a MUST-HAVE. Regular chocolate is good. Deep dark Belgian chocolate flavored ice cream is so much better.

Vanilla is good. Rich creamy French Vanilla is more flavorful.

Strawberry is important. Rich fruity strawberry made with pieces of fresh strawberry fruit and strawberry juice is better.

Optional Ice Cream Flavors: This is where we all get to go a bit wild!

Lemon Sorbet
Mandarin Orange
Banana Coconut
Peanut Butter
Pink Lemonade

The Crunchy Toppings

Coffee Jello
Cracker Jack
Cocoa nibs

The Perfect Result is to Finish with Soft Toppings

Balsamic Reduction – heat slowly balsamic vinegar, sugar and port wine until syrupy
Catsup (sounds crazy but catsup is great on vanilla ice cream and was a favorite of former President Richard Nixon)
High quality olive oil
Italian Syrups (there are dozens of flavors)
Lemon Juice
Orange honey
Pomegranate flavor
Warmed Nutella

Deidre Scott, Founder

Owner, Founder at Rather Be Home Senior Care
Deidre Scott is the founder of Rather Be Home and has always found her passion in the health and well-being of others. Shortly after receiving her bachelor's degree she worked for Bristol Myers-Squibb as a cardiovascular representative. Her specialties included blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol. She then worked 15 years with Procter & Gamble where she educated Veterinarians on how nutrition could help nutritionally manage various disease states such as kidney failure, colitis and diabetes in cats and dogs. During that time she pursued her education further and received her MBA.

She founded Rather Be Home in 2014 after seeing the tribulations her friends were having with their aging parents. Hard decisions need to be made and no one knows where to go for help. Having lived with her grandparents most of her childhood and helping her grandma care for her grandpa it just seemed natural to open a home care business.
