At Home Care For Seniors Can Assist In Limiting Effects of Isolation
If you or your loved one is experiencing negative effects of living alone, at home care for seniors can help.
Isolation from the outside world has negative effects on almost every age group. Unfortunately, the senior population is at an increased risk of experiencing these feelings due to a number of factors including limited access to transportation and decreased physical stamina. As part of FirstLight’s at home care for seniors, we work to properly address these issues and reintroduce seniors into a more socially active and physically healthier lifestyle.
Our at home care for seniors incorporates what we call companion care services into our caregivers’ daily tasks. Simply by being available to seniors while folding laundry or preparing meals throughout an otherwise quiet day, our caregivers become a sounding board for ideas and a listening ear to stories and personal anecdotes. With consistent visits, your senior caregiver may become both friend and confidante to your senior loved one.
FirstLight at home care for seniors can also provide transportation services for seniors who can longer drive or do not feel comfortable doing so. Our transportation services allow seniors to get out in the world and enjoy social activities, clubs and events that they would otherwise struggle to attend. FirstLight caregivers can also provide rides to the grocery store, medical appointments and other important commitments.
Additionally, your FirstLight caregiver can provide companionship for seniors who may need assistance during extended periods of travel. Our travel companionship services can include assistance with airport and hotel check-ins, carrying luggage, customs and ticketing assistance, car rental, driving and navigation. During extended travel periods, a caregiver can continue to provide standard personal care such as bathing, dressing, feeding, medication reminders and other tasks. Whether your loved one is planning a cross-country road trip, cruise or a weekend resort getaway, FirstLight at home care for seniors can be there to provide companionship and care.
