We are all aware that proper nutrition, daily exercise, and managing stress are all crucial to help us stay healthy as we age. However, consistent socialization is just as important to living a long and healthy life. Unfortunately, older adults who live alone are prone to social isolation and feelings of loneliness that can affect their quality of life.
As a provider of elderly care in Virginia, we will discuss how older adults can benefit from companionship:
- Stave Off Cognitive Decline
Seniors who live alone and experience social isolation are at a greater risk of experiencing cognitive decline. By receiving companionship care from a senior care agency, they receive daily assistance and have someone to engage in friendly conversation with. This level of consistent socialization can help improve memory to stave off cognitive decline.
- Greater Comfort
For seniors, experiencing a decline in their health can be very isolating. This can lead to feelings of fear, anxiety, and even depression. In addition to pediatric healthcare, we offer companionship services to support our clients and ensure comfort and safety as they recover at home.
- Peace of Mind
Additionally, having an in-home caregiver look after your aging parent or loved one can give peace of mind for the entire family. Knowing a professional is there to look after your loved one can help reduce stress and provide greater balance for loved ones.
