Companionship can be vital to the mental and physical well-being of older adults.
As individuals age it can become harder to keep up with normal routines and social activities. According to the CDC, older adults, particularly those who live alone, are prone to develop feelings of social isolation and loneliness that can lead to serious health conditions. Caregivers can provide companionship support that helps clients feel comfortable, secure, social, and well-cared for.
Caregivers can provide companionship services including:
• Assistance/company with normal routines
• Taking for a walk
• Providing company at mealtime, social activities, or family events and other functions
• Accompanying to appointments
