For most people as they age, their circle of friends and family, particularly those who they can be in touch with regularly, tends to decrease. For married couples who enjoy each other’s company, this change may not seem all that noticeable.
Reduced mobility, losing one’s driver’s license, health concerns or other general anxieties can and do limit contact with the outside world also. For singles, widows and widowers, loneliness and isolation can occur quite regularly and easily. Cognitive abilities and other brain and body functions can be adversely affected by isolation.
Our care givers can provide more than just basic care—they can also read books and newspapers to home-bound patients unable to do so for themselves. Perhaps a card game? Or just some pleasant conversation to pass the time. Providing companionship to your loved ones isn’t necessarily the primary purpose for having a live-in or visiting care, but it is certainly a benefit and is central to the mission of keeping your loved ones, safe, healthy and happy.
