Companionship is important for everyone! It’s especially important for anyone spending an extended amount of time isolated. People who find themselves in need of companionship services include seniors or anyone who has become isolated due to illness, cancer, disease, or an accident. In-home companionship offers emotional support for those who are socially isolated or simply looking for additional social stimulation while remaining independent at home. Our companionship caregivers can assist your loved one with recreational activities or hobbies, personal hygiene assistance, meal planning and preparation, medication reminders, or just provide good company for a game of cards or a nice chat!
Not a Senior? Not a Problem!
Our personal care services are not just for seniors. We also provide care for younger clients in need of assistance. These young clients may all have a different diagnosis. For example, a 25-year-old dealing with cancer, a 28-year-old who fell off his mountain bike right out of college and is now a quadriplegic, a 34-year-old who had a massive stroke during surgery and is now bed bound with high acuity needs, and 50-year-olds ranging from massive stokes to cancer.
5 Benefits of In-Home Companionship for Seniors
- Longer Lifespan
Companionship provides seniors with a social connection that combats isolation and depression, and greatly benefits their overall health and well-being.
- Protection Against Dementia
The more that seniors interact socially, the better they score on cognitive functioning.
- Lower Risk of Heart Disease
Seniors who suffer from loneliness or social isolation are more likely to develop coronary heart disease and more likely to have a stroke than those who are socially engaged.
- Faster Recovery
Seniors recovering from surgery that have a companion nearby suffer less nerve-related pain and inflammation levels lower faster, aiding the recovery process.
- Peace of Mind
Companionship provides seniors with a sense of security knowing there is someone there to help keep them safe when necessary.
