Comfort Keepers of Cumberland, MD, help local seniors age with dignity and independence in their homes. Our services cover a wide-range, including some simple tasks. These may include things like picking up medication, preparing and cooking meals, and feeding the pets etc. We also offer more advanced in-home health care solutions. All these things and more offer invaluable services. Yet there's an even more fundamental need that the home caregiver caters too: friendship.
Most seniors don't say too much about their solitude because they don’t want to put anyone out. But we see enough older folks to realize many suffer from acute loneliness, especially those who live alone. We also see how uplifted they become when we provide regular companion care, offering genuine friendship. Put simply, humans—at any age—are happier when they get to engage with others.
A kindly home caregiver often helps to fill those empty gaps between family visits. This benefits the senior on three essential levels, i.e. physical, mental, and spiritual.
More Than Just A Home Caregiver Companion
Seniors can employ the services of a caregiver solely for companionship. Even so, companion care is often part of a more encompassing service. These may include things like the following:
- Light Housekeeping including laundry
- Daily check-ins
- Running errands such as picking up prescriptions, dry cleaners, etc
- Feeding pets, walking the dog
- Meal preparation and special diets
The Importance Of Companionship
Younger people don't have to think about social interaction as they go about their busy lives. But when it slips away, loneliness can creep in and gradually take hold. Too many seniors today suffer in silence.
For this reason, Comfort Keepers of Cumberland, MD, incorporate companion care into our home caregiving solutions. Over time, warm, personal relationships often develop between our Comfort Keepers and their clients. We now know the lack of social engagement can lead to depression and even cognitive decline.
At Comfort Keepers we also have our special Interactive Caregiving® programs. These contribute toward healthier, longer, and more purposeful lives for the seniors we care for. We tailor each plan to the client to help promote physical activity as well as mental stimulation.
