Why Should My Loved One Consider Elderly Companion Care?
When your loved ones retire, their time for social activities will increase. For many retirees, their support system feels limited. When they do not want to burden neighbors or loved ones for help and often become too isolated. Social isolation can lead to health concerns like depression or weakness in muscles and joints from lack of activity. Getting out, staying active, and involved in favorite activities helps keep minds sharp, bodies strong, and spirits high. Having a companion who checks on them also helps encourage an elderly person to make a better life and health decisions.
