One of the most important aspects of in-home care is providing companionship. It should come as no surprise to anyone that socialization and companionship is an important part of a healthy life. Whether it is playing a favorite board game, reading, and analyzing the newspaper, taking a stroll, or visiting with friends, spending time with others is an important part of staying healthy as you age. As you can clearly see companionship services in Oklahoma City are perhaps among our most important key services.
Many studies show that along with regular exercise, proper sleep and healthy nutrition, regular social interaction with other adults is an essential factor in staying happy and healthy as we get older. See article
Older people who live alone often experience feelings of loneliness, isolation, and depression, which may have an impact on their health. Depression and cognitive decline are issues commonly faced by the elderly.
Having regular social contact with a Care Plus Home Care companion can dramatically improve the quality of life of an elderly person.
Accepting a new person into your home can be a daunting prospect, but having a regular companion to assist with hobbies, activities, and errands means that you can develop a great relationship that we know a lot of our customers simply couldn’t live without.
Companionship services are an essential part of home care services, not just because caregivers assist with routine daily tasks such as housework and personal hygiene, but also because they provide a meaningful human connection that significantly improves their quality of life.
Typically, as adults, we are used to interacting with multiple people every day. Friends, family, and co-workers all provide some degree of companionship which we may often take for granted. However, for the elderly, the opportunities for making social connections can diminish due to deteriorating health or restricted mobility outside of their homes.
Companionship is good for your well being
Care Plus Home Care can encourage self-confidence and independence and give people a sense of social connection that we all need.
If your loved one enjoys less physically demanding activities, our caregivers have lots of fun things to do together such as solving puzzles, playing board games, baking, watching movies, researching their family history, crafting, scrapbooking, chatting about current events, and reading together.
If they like to get out and about, our caregivers can assist them with light gardening, easy walking, and even accompany them to social outings with their friends or family.
For many elderly people there comes a time when they need more support than their own busy families can provide but not so much that a ‘trained caregiver’ is required. Furthermore, most elderly people wish to stay in their own homes for as long as possible before possibly moving into a long-term care facility or nursing home. Our Oklahoma Companionship Services fill this gap and offer comparatively cost-efficient support, security, and in-home-help. Care Plus Home Care is here to combat elderly loneliness with elderly companionship services in Oklahoma City and area.
From day-to-day support – either staying in at home or getting out and about – to having a valuable confidant for business trips or travel, we offer companionship services to suit your every need.
Sometimes companion care and support isn’t about a complex medical need or essential personal care tasks. Sometimes living the life that you want, doing the things you love, and feeling as human as possible is even more important.
We can support with hobbies and interests, attending events and shows, concierge services and running errands, or just popping round for a cup of coffee and a nice chat.
