Skilled Elder Care Services in Pitman, NJ and the Surrounding Area
We provide seniors in Pitman, NJ with elder care services designed to improve mental health
Sadly, for many seniors growing older comes with many issues, including memory loss and cognizance. However, the lifestyle a senior chooses to live can help improve both of these functions. The elder care services provided by Comfort Keepers® in Pitman, NJ, come with a professional caregiver who knows how to keep your loved one stay active. Being active is good for both physical and mental health.
Being Active Is Good for You
Everyone knows that leading an active lifestyle is good for your physical health. However, not many realize how important being active is for your mental health. In a study involving 65 women whose lives included various levels of activity, those who were more active showed the least decline in their mental sharpness.
Our caregiver will create a plan of action designed to keep your loved one's mind and body healthy as part of our elder care services.
More Than Physical Activities
While physical exercise is an essential part of keeping your heart, lungs, and the rest of your body fit and healthy, it is not enough. It takes a range of mental activities like engaging in a favorite hobby, building a puzzle, even learning a new language (you're never too old to learn) can help stimulate your loved one's mind. Our caregiver will choose activities that your loved one is interested in and will enjoy while at the same time improving their brain function.
Being Social Counts
Human beings need social interaction to thrive. There is nothing better than a great conversation with friends or family to help stimulate your loved one's brain. It can help improve mental acuity and memory. Our caregivers are always ready to engage in meaningful conversation as part of our Interactive Caregiving™ elder care services.
Helping with Memory Loss
Our caregivers are prepared to do more than engage your loved one in activities that improve their mental abilities. However, if these abilities have diminished your loved ones' ability to function and complete simple daily tasks, our caregiver can assist your loved one.
Our caregivers can:
- Help with chores, such as cooking or light cleaning
- Support during mood-lifting activities
- Reminders to take medications and eat regularly
- Assist with driving and performing errands
We have caregivers who are fully trained and experienced in working with seniors who are suffering from dementia and Alzheimer's. Our Interactive Care™ services are customizable to meet your loved one's needs and can be adjusted as they age, and their needs change.
