Companion care can help seniors in a number of ways:
- Memory – socialization can provide a way to relieve tension and anxiety, and a way to maintain strong mental health. Companion care will give seniors the socialization they need to keep their minds active.
- Physical Health – seniors who might not walk or exercise on their own may do so with the help and guidance of a caregiver. Using muscles and bones on a daily basis can keep them from weakening as they age.
- Emotional Health – being isolated can cause a senior to become depressed and anxious. Being able to socialize through companion care can improve a person’s mood and emotional state.
- Seniors who are isolated tend to have poorer health and shorter lifespans. Companion care removes isolation, gives seniors a better opportunity to manage stress, and may increase life expectancy.
