There are over 11 million seniors who live alone in the U.S. and many experience the negative effects that isolation can have, including depression, serious illness, and high blood pressure.
To help combat isolation among the elderly population, Assisting Hands Home Care provides our clients in Fort Myers, FL with companionship as well as quality in-home care.
We regularly engage your loved ones in conversation and other activities to give them back the social element of their lives that they may have lost.
Companion Care Activities
Our caregivers are open to participating in a range of activities with your loved ones including hobbies and recreational activities. Having someone to do their favorite activities with or just to have a conversation with can do wonders for your loved ones’ well-being.
We regularly engage your loved ones in activities that include conversations, walks, exercises, games, watching TV, running errands, and preparing meals. The companionship that our caregivers provide can result in the following benefits for your loved ones:
- Improved Memory: Engaging in activities with another person will keep the minds of seniors active, relieving tension and anxiety that can affect memory.
- Improved Physical Health: Our caregivers can help seniors engage in physical activities that will help strengthen their bones and muscles.
- Improved Emotional Health: Isolation commonly leads to depression and anxiety. Having a social companion will help relieve these feelings for improved emotional health.
- Increased Lifespan: Because isolation can lead to depression and poorer physical health, good companionship can increase the lifespan of seniors by improving their physical health and helping them manage their stress and anxiety.
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we take pride in providing excellent care and companionship for seniors in Fort Myers, FL.
We can personally tailor our companionship services like we do with our care services to make sure we engage your loved ones in their favorite activities. Having a companion in the home can be especially helpful when recovering from an illness or surgery.
