Learn more about our compassionate senior care in Edison, NJ
Senior care experts often stress the importance of making sure elders do not feel isolated from the outside world. For the millions of seniors who live alone, isolation is a very real risk that can contribute to health problems like depression, mental illness, high blood pressure, greater risk for elder abuse and many other issues. If you are concerned your loved one may be putting themselves at risk due to isolation, Comfort Keepers in Edison, NJ may be able to help.
At our agency, your senior care plan will be specially crafted with your loved one’s specific needs, situation and schedule in mind. We hand pick caregivers based on each client’s personality and interests as well as specific care needs. This ensures that your loved one is more likely to bond and enjoy spending time with his or her homecare provider. In order to engage seniors and make sure they experience regular social activity, their care aide will share in conversation, games and other activities with clients. We also work to include physical activity and exercise in our clients’ routines, depending on their physical abilities.
We also work to make sure our senior care plans include options for clients to take part in activities outside the home as well. This gives seniors an opportunity to be a part of their community, make new friends and get out of the house for a comfortable period of time. Our office in Edison, NJ works with a number of agencies and organizations that set up events for seniors, including Edison Public Library, Edison Senior Citizen Center and Edison Senior Services. Seniors who are interested in taking part in community activities but do not drive can benefit from our transportation assistance services. Their care aide will drive them to and from any event or activity to make sure they arrive and return safely. This can also reduce anxiety about trying new things and promote continued participation.
