We want the best for our family members; however, when it comes to our elderly loved ones, sometimes it can be difficult to take time out of our hectic day to spend the quality time with them that they deserve. Whether it is taking our loved ones to their doctor’s appointment, going shopping at the grocery store, seeing a movie at the theatre together, or helping around their home, it’s always nice to have some assistance if we need it. Fortunately, with companionship care, our loved ones can have a helping hand that’s willing to pitch in and help with any of the errands they need done. Home Instead Senior Care® in Sheldon, IA, offers more than that though. With our companionship care service, our talented staff can improve your loved one’s quality of life by providing them with socially engaging activities.
Companionship care offers our aging loved ones basic assistance with some of the caretaking aspects of their daily activities, but the emotional support your loved ones will experience will help in so many other ways. Sometimes we may fail to see that our elderly loved ones may be quietly suffering from depression. In many cases, our elderly loved ones experience sadness due for a variety of reasons including: physical health problems, recovering from surgery, frustration with inactivity, or the loss of a loved one they deeply cared for. Fortunately, with companionship care, we can lift their spirits by providing them with some socially engaging activities and also ensure that they are receiving basic care from a trained professional.
Studies have proven that companionship care is great for your loved one’s health too. Home Instead CAREGiversSM will not only enjoy outdoor activities like gardening or walking in a park with your family member to promote an active lifestyle, they will also play card games, do crafting projects, partake in storytelling, and discussing current events to keep your loved one’s memory sharp. These mentally stimulating activities can reduce their chances of developing any memory loss diseases like dementia or Alzheimer’s. With this affordable type of care, your loved one will enjoy socially engaging activities, experience plenty of health benefits, and appreciate their improved quality of life.
