The Dangers of Loneliness
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
Loneliness can be a vicious cycle as well, as the feelings are contagious. Those who are lonely and not getting the help and companionship they need may lose their friends or damage relationships with those who are unwilling to be around their negative energy. Companion care provided by Comfort Keepers in Olympia, WA could be the solution you've been looking for.
What is Companion Care?
We have come to realize that spending too much time alone can have serious mental and physical health consequences. This is why we provide companion care for seniors living alone. Each home care companion develops relationships with each of their patients and participates in their favorite activities. They can be there as a friend and a listening ear, but they can also assist with household chores or personal care needs as well.
In the first stage of developing a care plan, we meet with you and your senior loved one to better understand their individual care needs, as well as their interests, desires, and goals. Focused on more than simply the task at hand, companion care centers around building a lasting bond with our senior clients by engaging in meaningful conversations, exchanging stories and completing activities together.
Living alone doesn’t have to mean being lonely. Contact us or call (360) 226-2737 to schedule a consultation with one of our care coordinators. We’ll carefully select a home care companion based on your needs and individual interests. Let us bring joy to your life or your loved one’s life.
