In a survey commissioned by the AARP on loneliness, more than a third of the elderly participants were categorized as lonely. The study also found that loneliness was a significant predictor of poor health.
Visiting Angels of NW Ohio is committed to making sure that no elderly person needing senior home care feels lonely in the final stage of their life. That’s why the caregivers not only provide in- home respite care, non-medical home care and even 24-hour home care, but also provide a sense of companionship.
As much as we love our elder loved ones, we cannot be there for them all the time because we have our own lives to live. That’s where Visiting Angels’ caregivers come in. In addition to their personal care assistance for your loved ones, they help combat the loneliness by spending time with them.
Long chats, healthy meals, and a card game or two can go a long way to make someone healthier. With top-notch home care assistance, your loved one has not just an extra pair of hands to help them around, but a pair of ears to listen.
Companionship is an underrated benefit for senior care attendants. If you or a loved one is in need of assisted living or other elder care services, consider the kind, compassionate and competent caregivers at Visiting Angels of NW Ohio to provide excellent senior care and unmatched companionship.
