Sometimes the most valuable assistance is simple companionship. But there's nothing simple about finding the right caregiver for the right kind of companionship. Whether it is supportive conversation or activity-based companionship. Assurance Home Care will find the right caregiver for a customized approach.
The link between social needs and physical health is well documented. An active mind extends both physical and mental health and overall sense of well-being.
As seniors find themselves increasingly alone due to the circumstances of aging, including transportation issues and losing touch with friends, it becomes more vital to fill that companionship gap and to maintain that emotional and social stimulation.
At Assurance Home Care we'll work with you and your loved ones to develop the right blend of individual attention that can include:
Engaging conversation stimulates the mind and provides comfort. Whether reminiscing about the past, talking about family and grandchildren or sharing life's lessons and values, our home care givers can be that individual to join in conversation. This is often where many of the strongest bonds between caregiver and client happens.
We all know intuitively, and science has shown, that the mind is like a muscle. Muscles need to be used to avoid atrophy. Along with other companionship activities, active thinking and processing exercises such as games, puzzles and other tools provide a mental challenge that strengthens the mental muscle.
Assurance Home Caregivers can lend a helping hand in coordinating social activities with friends and family. Everything from having visitors in the home to going out for social activity, shopping, walks in the park with friends, going to church and more. All of these activities help maintain a sense of purpose and independence.
Doctors and physiotherapists alike extol the virtues of exercise. This can come in many forms from small walks to assistance with maintaining or increasing mobility and muscle use. Assurance Home Caregivers are there to assist and encourage. They can even work with other professionals to assist in the programs already developed by physiotherapist and trainers specialized in elder care.
