The Secret Benefit of In Home Senior Services

The Secret Benefit of In Home Senior Services

As we age and enter our senior years, life becomes more difficult. It just does. This doesn’t mean, of course, that seniors can’t enjoy life or that these challenges are in anyway insurmountable. But we’re lying to ourselves if we don’t anticipate the challenges of aging for either ourselves or our loved ones. And it’s fairly straightforward for us when these challenges are more tangible and better understood.

We know many seniors will develop mobility issues, and we’re prepared to deal with them. We know that as we age, changes to our diet might become necessary. We’re even cognizant of the significant challenges posed by illnesses such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. But there is another issue that faces millions of seniors and it’s one that we don’t think about enough.

Loneliness

Seniors are one of the most at-risk demographics for illnesses and challenges stemming from loneliness and isolation. We don’t consider this often enough. And when we do, we are often guilty of underestimating its impact. Or sometimes, we see it as a symptom of another problem, which it sometimes is.

However, it is becoming increasingly the case that many issues –such as dementia, lack of eating, lack of exercise, and depression– are caused, or are at least exacerbated, by loneliness and isolation. An otherwise fit and healthy senior can see his or her life begin to deteriorate as a result of their isolation. And yet, many of us can’t think of a decent solution to this problem. Well, there is a great solution, and it is companion care.

Companion Care

Most of us see the value in hiring somebody to come over and help our elderly loved ones with health or mobility issues. Yet why is it we don’t often consider the same when it comes to companionship?

Executive Care offers companion care. Having a highly skilled, personable, and empathetic care worker come by to talk, play games, and assist with correspondence, can make all the difference in the world in a senior’s life. And when coupled with more straightforward tasks such as light housekeeping, helping with meal preparation, and reminding clients to take medication and finish meals, a companion care worker can quickly become a vital and greatly beneficial component of a senior’s life.

Emotional and Mental Stability

Investing in companion care effectively means to invest in the mental and emotional wellbeing of your elderly loved one. Even when seniors have no significant mobility or physical issues and even when they are free from illness, they may still be at risk mentally and emotionally.

Think about it: if you’re a senior and many of the friends you had around your age have passed on or are losing/have lost their faculties, or worse still, your spouse has passed on or lost his or her faculties, life can be very depressing. Not to mention that, with retirement, many seniors struggle to find purpose or structure in their lives and can become depressed or withdrawn. Companion care helps to ease all these problems and keep seniors emotionally and socially engaged, which can greatly benefit their overall health.

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.
Cindi E
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.
