Companionship has shown to be extremely important to avoid isolation and loneliness in seniors.
Research reveals there’s a surprisingly strong link between social needs and health. In one survey, four out of five physicians (85 percent) report that unmet social needs directly lead to worse health.
For many seniors, home care fills the social gap created by growing older. Companion Care is an ideal solution for a senior who would otherwise spend most of the day alone and for those who require light assistance. Senior home companions monitor and protect a senior’s safety, health and wellness, handle everyday household tasks—and provide much-needed social interaction.
