As a person ages, social interaction and companionship plays a significant role in mental and physical health. Many elderly individuals suffer from loneliness and isolation, because they are homebound and unable to interact with others.
Better at Home Health Service’s aides will provide companionship. This often results in better physical health. It boosts positive feelings and alleviates stress. Studies have shown that there is a lower risk of Dementia and Alzheimer’s when people interact with others. Companionship helps keep the mind sharp.
Our Home Health Aides can prepare meals and join them while they’re eating. Nothing brings people together quite like a meal which allows the senior to feel a sense of belonging. Talks of family and friends, discussions about daily news topics and laughing at jokes are just some of the ways seniors can enjoy companionship over a meal - perhaps making it the high point of the day.
