Companionship Senior Care Services In Sacramento, CA
Companionship care can help improve your loved one's quality of life.
Many seniors across the country often find themselves isolated and living with increasing levels of anxiety, depression, and loneliness. This makes sense if we look at the simple fact that the demands of the modern workplace often take children away from their parents because they have to move to a different city to follow their career. To top that off, the older we get, the more people we start to lose, including partners, family, loved ones, and friends. Senior care can help your loved one ward off some of that loneliness.
Comfort Keepers has been providing quality senior care, including companionship care, to seniors across the country for two decades now. We have found that spending a lot of time is not only harmful to seniors mentally, causing depression and anxiety. It can also have a number of physical side effects such as raising blood pressure and contributing to dementia, cognitive decline, risky and unhealthy behaviors and even early death.
One of the best ways our senior care professionals can help your loved one ward off feelings of loneliness is by helping the participate in their favorite activities. We can even do it with them. This can include just about any activity that is physically and mentally accessible to your loved one such as doing puzzles, gardening, going to church or playing bingo. Socializing is important and humans are social animals, so, we should never ignore this aspect of our lives.
