At Nest & Care, we know that the demands of our jobs and families sometimes make it impossible for us to live with our elderly loved ones or even spend quality time with them. Unfortunately, when seniors live alone or spend the better part of the day unaccompanied, they tend to experience feelings of loneliness and social isolation.
Research shows that social isolation in seniors can have a negative effect on their health, especially when they already have underlying health issues. On the other hand, companionship has been shown to have a positive impact on their general well-being. For example, companionship is believed to lower the risk of heart disease, to protect against dementia, and to help patients recover from a surgery or illness much faster among other health benefits.
And that’s not all, we all know that seniors tend to lose strength and mobility as they continue to age. As a result, they may not be in a position to handle emergencies as efficiently as they used to when they were stronger. This makes it uncomfortable and even dangerous for them to live alone.
Because a companion is not there to provide companionship alone but to also keep an eye on the senior, family members, and even the seniors themselves can rest easy knowing that there’s a responsible adult they can depend on to make a sensible decision should an emergency or any other need arise.
Therefore, if you can’t be with your loved one for any reason, or if you are a senior who wishes to have someone to talk to or to keep you company a few times a week, we can help.
If you are worried about entrusting your loved one’s security, or your own security for that matter, in the hands of a stranger, no need to worry – we always aim to match up our clients with caregivers who not only match their needs but their personalities as well.
Does your loved one enjoy reading? If yes, we will match him/her up with a caregiver who enjoys reading as well. Does he/she enjoy playing cards, we will match him/her up with a caregiver who enjoys playing cards as well. And so forth!
Because of that, we can positively state that we have seen beautiful friendships blossom between our clients and our caregivers.
Our companion care service is primarily an emotional support and companionship package for seniors who want to remain at home. But it also incorporates in-home care services, such as:
- Meal preparation
