Home Health Companies in Memphis, TN with a Focus on Mental Health
Mental health is the key to happiness as a senior ages. Comfort Keepers Home Health Company in Memphis, TN offer long term care to help your loved one maintain a happier, engaged mind as they age.
Mental health starts with care from home health companies that focus on a senior’s cognition as they age. Slowing mental decline is possible, but it takes a senior:
- Engaging in activities that they enjoy
- Socializing with friends and loved ones
- Stimulating their brain
Comfort Keepers pairs seniors with a trained, qualified caregiver that helps:
- Motivate seniors to get out of the house
- Encourages seniors to socialize
- Provides companionship
Mental and physical health improves with activity.
Physical Activity That Your Loved One Can Enjoy
Home health companies are designed to know the limitations of each client. Caregivers will assess a loved one’s mobility needs so that your loved one can increase oxygen flow to their brain. Regular activity, such as walking, is believed to help fend off dementia and other brain-related conditions.
Home health companies and their caregivers can help with physical activities, or encourage seniors to:
- Engage in weight training
- Walk around the block
Mental Stimulation to Retain Cognitive Function
Mental stimulation must go beyond watching television or sitting on the couch. Mental stimulation, through hobbies or other fun activities, can help keep a senior’s cognitive function strong.
Activities that may lead to better cognitive function include:
- Board games
- Playing music
Any activity that your loved one enjoys that keeps them mentally stimulated can help in cognition retention.
Socialization for Improved Mental Health
Isolation and depression are common in seniors, but socialization can help. Seniors that are lonely often become depressed, forcing their quality of life on a downward spiral. Caregivers will become friends with your loved one, sharing:
- Meals together
We take a holistic approach to the emotional and physical wellbeing of seniors.
Comfort Keepers provides the support your loved one needs, starting with input from love ones, and a home health company that creates a plan that meets all of your senior’s mental goals. Assistance can be provided on a 24/7 basis, or we can help fill the gaps that family members cannot.
We can help with mental stimulation, but that’s just the start. We have experience with seniors that have dementia and Alzheimer’s. Whether it be playing a board game, help with personal hygiene, cleaning, light housekeeping, medication reminders or basic companionship, we’re there to help.
