As one ages, they may visit with friends and family less because of their lost ability to drive. For many seniors, losing daily touch with friends and family results in depression and isolation. A caregiver fills this gap providing a crucial link for seniors. Companion Care is an ideal solution for seniors who would otherwise spend most of the day alone.
Companion care provides multiple forms of social interaction for seniors including sharing stories, playing games or going for a walk. This stimulation provided by a professional caregiver can enhance mental acuity potentially delaying some of the effects from Alzheimer’s Disease. Many seniors are reassured having a companion who can help them remain independent at home. Companion care is included in all levels of hourly and live-in home care provided by Adultcare Assistance Homecare.
