Companion Care Services
Comfort Keepers® of Flemington, NJ offers companion care services to promote healthy living, safety and independence for seniors living at home.
Comfort Keepers® of Flemington, NJ recognizes the importance of quality companion care for seniors. When we think of companionship, thoughts of friendship, community, and fellowship spring to mind. Yet these are all things that can -and often do -gradually drift away as people grow older. Circumstances can change and limit ones ability to socialize and interact in the way they previously did. We understand this. It's why Comfort Keepers® takes companionship needs seriously, and it why we offer this vital service.
Loneliness is one of the biggest problems affecting older adults every day. More than one-third of people over the age of 65 in the United States live alone, and many of them struggle with loneliness. In addition to the feeling of emptiness or isolation, loneliness can lead to serious health problems. Someone who spends most of their time alone is at a greater risk of the following conditions:
- High Blood Pressure
- Clinical Depression
- Dementia or Cognitive Decline
- Engagement in Risky or Unhealthy Behaviors
- Early Death
Living alone and being alone is not the same thing. Loneliness can be a vicious cycle, as the feelings are contagious. Those who are lonely and not getting the help they need may lose their friends or damage relationships with those who are unwilling to be around their negative energy.
