Companion Care

As seniors age, their risk of isolation – whether real or perceived – increases. As lifelong friends pass away and neighbors move, seniors may find their social network disappearing quickly. Add in complex medical conditions that can make driving difficult or impossible, and seniors can begin to feel lonely. Even for seniors that live with a partner or spouse, feelings of isolation can lead to negative consequences.

The Toll Isolation Takes
The subject of senior isolation has been well researched over the past decade, to somewhat surprising results. The lack of a peer network of support and encouragement has been shown to lead to increased feelings of depression, while less social interaction has been shown to lead to increased progression of dementia. To be sure, unmanaged senior isolation can lead to poor physical and mental health for aging adults.

Isolation certainly has its dire consequences for seniors living at home. However, even for seniors who still get out and about a bit, loneliness can feel devastating.

How Visiting Angels Helps
Our Companion Care Services are second to none in the Fort Worth and surrounding areas. More than just a social call or friendly visit, our caregivers provide a relationship of encouragement and support to seniors who may be feeling isolated or lonely at home.

Through our personalized approach, our team works hard to recommend a schedule that appeals to the senior as well as fortifies the social engagement needed for healthy aging. Our Visiting Angels caregivers excel at making our time in a client’s home more than just a social call. We work hard to make our time together engaging and genuine, finding ways to connect and support our clients.

For some of our clients, a weekly visit that includes a neighborhood walk is perfect. For others, a daily visit that includes a robust round of cards or trying a new recipe together is just what they need to feel loved, included, and cared for.

Seniors need to feel a part of a social community, and our caregivers are happy to become a part of theirs. Contact our office today to take the first steps in building a relationship that will make everyone feel good.
