Senior companionship is primarily emotional support for seniors who are socially isolated or simply looking for additional social stimulation while remaining independent at home. Our senior 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! Learn about 5 benefits of senior companionship below.
5 Benefits of 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 their 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.
