Home Care Reduces Feelings of Isolation in Columbia, SC
Our services help seniors stay connected
Despite a growing number of social activities tailored specifically to the senior population, millions of seniors feel lonely and isolated. While not a medical condition, isolation can have grave consequences on the health of seniors and older adults, triggering or worsening mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. Isolation can also increase the risk of high blood pressure, long-term illness, and a variety of other health issues that could otherwise be prevented.
Keeping in mind that over 11 million American seniors live alone, isolation is a serious problem. Comfort Keepers has long realized the severity of this issue, offering home care that is centered on companionship and interaction. With our care programs, your senior loved one can enjoy an active social life and remain strongly connected with their local community in Columbia, SC, which can drastically improve their quality of life and boost both confidence and independence.
Our home care providers not only offer assistance with daily tasks and routines, but they also make sure to engage seniors in those activities and provide plenty of meaningful interaction on a daily basis. This approach is the basis of our Interactive Caregiving philosophy. According to this philosophy, for seniors to lead high-quality, happy lives, it is important that they remain as physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially active as possible.
We Help Seniors Engage in the Local Community
More often than not, our caregivers form strong bonds with our clients, taking the caregiving experience to a new level for both parties. Each time one of our caregivers visits your senior loved one, they will engage your aging parent or relative in conversation - sharing stories and memories, discussing current affairs, and more. Your senior loved one and their home care provider can play cards or board games, view family photographs, prepare meals together or just watch old movies or TV. Additionally, they can travel around town to watch a show at the Koger Center for the Arts, go for walks in Finlay Park or have lunch or tea at your loved one’s favorite restaurant or café.
Comfort Keepers in Columbia, SC, also cooperates with the local community to provide our clients with useful resources. We make sure to stay up to date with events and activities available in the area so that our senior clients can choose activities they like. The more opportunities your senior loved one has to participate in enjoyable activities and spend quality time with their peers, the less lonely or isolated they may feel.
