Senior Care Services Can Improve Senior Health
Senior care services from Comfort Keepers® improve the lives of seniors through companionship as well as physical and mental health activities. Comfort Keepers provides senior care services through specially-trained senior care providers who are dedicated to creating healthy, happy and safe environments for seniors in their local communities.
Companionship services offered by Comfort Keepers help the senior to feel more connected, even if he or she is no longer able to leave the home very often. Comfort Keepers caregivers will spend time with the senior and get to know him or her through Interactive Caregiving(TM), Comfort Keepers' unique way to create personal relationships between seniors and their caregivers. Through creating a real relationship, seniors and caregivers will grow to trust each other and truly look forward to spending time together. This will increase the senior's self-esteem and also give them something to look forward to each week. It has been shown that individuals who have happier relationships with people in their lives tend to have higher self-esteem, and they can even be more alert mentally.
Comfort Keepers senior care services can also create more physical activities for the senior. The senior care services provider can plan fun trips, such as taking walks in local parks, fishing at a nearby pond or going to the neighborhood recreation center to take a swimming class or crafting class. As long as the senior can safely get in and out of a car, caregivers can drive the senior anywhere he or she would like.
When seniors stay active, it not only improves their mental clarity, it also helps keep muscles strong and improves circulation and heart health. In addition to keeping the body strong and toned overall, being active shows the senior that they can still do all the things they used to do, but they can do it safely with a helping hand from Comfort Keepers.
