How Can Home Companions Help The Elderly?

How Can Home Companions Help the Elderly?

Discover how home companions for the elderly can improve their lives, help them with mental health challenges, and make them feel less isolated and depressed.

Home Companions For The Elderly Are Lifelines That Connect Their Otherwise Isolated Lives To The Outside World.

“Isolation” was a big word in 2021. As we all hope to move out of the Covid-19 pandemic so none of us has to isolate anymore, it’s worth noting that many elderly people have lived in a kind of isolation already for years.

After an elderly person retires, they might well find themselves living in a city in which they have no family and no friends. Once they stop seeing coworkers every day, they really don’t have anybody they can interact with on a regular basis. This isolation often leads to loneliness and depression, which are serious mental health problems. Isolation can have a horrible effect on seniors who live alone, but even couples can become isolated from the outside world together.

Home Companions Offer An Effective Alternative To Senior Care Communities.

Many seniors who live in senior care communities enjoy the communal and social aspects of these facilities. While most seniors in these communities aren’t lonely, not everybody is happy with this style of living.

Many seniors like having their own space and the privacy of their own homes. And many people have sentimental attachments to their homes, so it’s common for seniors to view moving out of their home and into a community as the beginning of the end. Furthermore, senior living communities are expensive. Home companion care is significantly more affordable.

What Do Home Companions Do For The Elderly?

Home companion caregivers visit the elderly in their homes. They might visit weekly or more often, even daily. Companion caregivers help seniors improve and maintain their mental health and emotional wellbeing in a number of ways.

Talking is a big part about what they do. These conversations can be serious and deal with the mental and emotion challenges the senior faces. Many elderly people are reluctant to discuss these matters with family or friends, but they often feel more comfortable opening up to a companion caregiver. But these conversations can be lighthearted, too.

They can chat about the weather, sports, or they can reminisce together. Companion caregivers also play card games and board games with seniors. They urge seniors to keep in touch with the outside world. They can accomplish this by accompanying their elderly clients to social functions or encouraging them to keep up with correspondence.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
