As someone ages, they may need some extra assistance and care. Their families may not be able to provide the level of attention that their loved one needs, and this is when homemaker & companions can make a difference. Polish Helping Hands offers this service to their clients throughout Farmington, Avon, Canton, Burlington, Simsbury, and Unionville, CT. If you’re thinking about getting some help, consider what a senior companion can do for your family to ensure your elderly loved one is well and safe.
The Difference Homemakers & Companions Make on a Senior
What They Do
A caregiver provides a wide range of services, and you can select those you’d like to employ based on the needs of your loved one. Common assistance includes help with errands, such as grocery shopping, cleaning the home, preparing meals, reminding the senior to take medication, and showering and bathing. There are options for caregivers to provide full-time, live-in care, or hourly aid during the day or night.
Why Companionship Matters
On top of the provided services, a companion looks out for the senior all day or night. They keep them company and build a friendship, preventing the loneliness that many elders are prone to feeling. If your loved one is single or widowed, it can be difficult for them to be at home alone for many hours. A companion converses with them and brings them joy each day. They also help prevent accidents, such as falls, and are there to call for immediate help in an emergency situation. Your loved one will not be stuck without assistance when they need it most.
