Does Your Loved One Seem Isolated and Lonely?
Loneliness and social isolation are real problems for our elderly. A feeling of isolation and withdrawal from others can have a serious impact on the individual’s health, well-being and quality of life. In comparison, seniors who are socially active and stay connected to others report feeling healthier both physically and mentally.
Human interaction is a basic need. Seniors who live alone often experience social isolation and feelings of loneliness. A companion provides a human connection and friendly conversation that can improve overall health and wellbeing. In addition to regular socialization, our companions lend a helping hand with simple tasks and offer encouragement to go out and even attend social events.
Our companions strive to maintain your independence, dignity and self-esteem. Companion care is perfect for adults who live alone or far from family. It is also the ideal solution for seniors who lose
Companion Care Provides Emotional Support Leading to Empowerment
Hiring a companion means that you will be able to maintain a sense of dignity and independence. From taking away loneliness to ensuring proper nutrition, companionship offers great benefits.
Our NYC-based companions will not provide hands-on care. They can, however, help with your housekeeping and laundry needs, as well as running your errands and preparing and serving your meals. They can also accompany you to social or religious events as well as your doctor appointments.
Companionship includes activities such as reading and stimulating conversation, watching movies, help with crafts and hobbies, and simply engaging in friendly conversation.
Quality Companions Make the Difference in Maintaining Health, Wellness, Independence, and Overall Quality of Life
Our companions are screened and checked before we hire them. In addition, each companion completes our orientation program and is supervised by a nurse. The nurse will create the caregiver’s plan of care based on your specific and particular needs and preferences.
Once you make the decision to hire a companion, we begin the process of assigning the right one that best fits your needs. This will be based on your preferences for language, cultural background, age, gender and other characteristics you define as important to you. The right companion will provide mental stimulation, while supervising your safety.
Our companions are very flexible and will conform to your schedule. You can dictate the tasks and the schedule according to your specific needs. Whether you want a companion for a few hours a week, or you prefer a full-time companion, we will do our best to satisfy your needs.
Being socially active can be good for an older adult’s health and well-being. This is why companion care is one of the most requested services.
