Adult Home Care Options Can Reduce Isolation Among Elderly
Find out how adult home care options in Brentwood, TN can improve your loved one’s quality of life
Expert providers of adult home care options understand that isolation is an ever-growing problem among aging seniors. As we age, our situations change, children grow up, move away, family members are far and wide, friends become fewer and may not have the means to drive to meet and socialize on a regular basis. Isolation and loneliness are not only unpleasant in and of themselves, but can cause serious risk to overall long-term health if left unchecked including higher mortality risk, reduced mental and physical health, increased risk of elder abuse, higher risk of dementia, high blood pressure, increased risk for long-term illness and a greater risk of experiencing depression as well as a number of other risk factors. Comfort Keepers offers adult home care that may be able to help.
Comfort Keepers of Brentwood, TN offers adult home care that limit the risks of isolation on seniors and other adults who live alone. Our expert care aides provide interactive caregiving that ensures seniors receive social activity as well as physical. This means that seniors engage on a regular basis with their care providers in a variety of ways including games, conversation, storytelling and more. Caregivers not only provide that create a safe environment, they also engage seniors while doing so. This can mean enlisting the senior’s help with meal preparation, laundry folding, grocery shopping and other light housekeeping chores.
Our adult home care options also include transportation for seniors who need assistance getting to social events outside the home including doctor’s appointments, social engagements, church events and other activities and errands. As part of our Interactive Caregiving philosophy, we also work with community organizations to stay involved in senior-specific events throughout Brentwood that may be of interest to the senior clients we serve. We believe that adult home care can and must, whenever possible, extend beyond the boundaries of your senior loved one’s home in order to foster greater health, happiness and engagement in life.
