Elderly Care Reduces Isolation For Plymouth Seniors
Isolation is a problem that millions of seniors face. In fact, some social scientists are calling the rates of isolation and depression among seniors an epidemic. Seniors who live far away from their relatives or children or don’t have enough close friends nearby have a high risk of becoming isolated and depressed, and that can take a big toll on their physical health. Elderly care is the perfect way to give your senior loved one some extra help around the house and make sure that your senior loved one has some companionship.
The Risks of Isolation
Senior care experts agree that isolation is a major problem for many seniors living alone at home. Risks of isolation include increased mortality rates, decreased physical and mental health and higher risk for dementia, elder abuse, and long-term illness.
In order to ensure your senior family member or loved one does not experience these increased risk factors due to isolation, consider utilizing elderly home care services that provide companionship and social opportunities for seniors as well as assistive care. At the start of your journey with Comfort Keepers, a home care expert will do an assessment to determine what kind of care services are most appropriate for your loved one. Our care assessment also delves into your loved one’s personality, likes, interests, and hobbies. This information is invaluable when selecting a caregiver match, which is essential to building rapport, trust and, ultimately friendship and close bonding.
How Elderly Home Care Can Reduce Isolation For Plymouth Seniors
Your loved one and his or her senior care provider will spend time talking, sharing stories, playing games, taking walks and running errands together like shopping for food at Westborn Market. This allows your loved one’s basic needs to be met more safely and also provides a regular dose of socialization to keep loneliness at bay. Our care providers work to build trust with each client.
As a relationship with a care assistant grows, seniors often see their home helpers as confidants, someone to whom they can confide medical and personal concerns. This often results in earlier detection of illness or disease. Our care experts are also trained to take notice of each senior’s living conditions and are able to point out when something is not as it should be. They are also adept at providing helpful suggestions that can make navigating home life simpler.
