Home Healthcare: Supporting the Social Side of Senior Living

When most people think about in-home senior care, they envision trained caregivers assisting with scheduling medication, managing the home and providing personal services that assist the elderly in day-to-day living. While true, it’s missing a very significant component – supplying companionship, one-on-one interaction and keeping your loved one social, having fun and enjoying life. Here’s some insight from our senior independent home care specialists.

  • Daily companionship: In addition to being fully trained and experienced caregivers, in-home senior care specialists are dedicated companions and friends. Residents are Female senior in a wheelchair being hugged by female nursematched with caregivers with whom they get along well in order to alleviate the stress of inviting new persons into their homes. From conversation and board games to providing transport to social events, caregivers support the social side of life.
  • In-Home Respite Care Services: Using respite services can support and strengthen your ability to be a caregiver. Seeking respite services is not only normal, but oftentimes essential to a caregiver’s health.
