Learn more about our loving senior care in Port Charlotte, FL
Senior care experts around the country agree that isolation is a serious problem among aging adults. Not only is isolation difficult to deal with on an emotional level, it can also cause serious health problems for those experiencing it, such as higher blood pressure, increased risk of mental illness and depression, greater likelihood of experiencing elder abuse and a host of other negative health issues. If you believe you or your loved one may be experiencing a decline in health due to isolation, we may be able to help.
We offer companionship care services that will enable your loved one to engage on a social level regularly through visits with a senior care aide. Our care aides are hand selected based on information provided by your loved one, their family members, doctors and other specialists. This allows for common interests, hobbies and personality to easily contribute to the bonding experience between caregiver and client. Care providers and clients regularly engage in conversation, sharing ideas, experiences and opinions as well as mutually enjoyable activities such as walks around the neighborhood, card or board games, visits to local attractions in Port Charlotte and more.
Assisting Hands senior care aides also encourage seniors to get active within the Port Charlotte community and meet other seniors with similar hobbies and interests. We work with a number of agencies and organizations to stay aware of activities our clients may enjoy. Among these organizations are Mid County Regional Library, Harold Avenue Recreation Center and Cultural Center of Charlotte County. Many seniors who feel isolated do so because they can no longer independently get to the social activities they might otherwise have enjoyed. Our agency offers transportation services to ensure this is not a deterrent to participation for our clients. Not only will their regular caregiver arrive early to help them prepare for their day, he or she will make sure their client arrives on time and returns home safely afterward. Care aides can also accompany clients throughout the day for moral support and assistance with mobility or other needs.
