Comfort Keepers provides a variety of home care services for senior citizens living in Kitchener, Waterloo, and the surrounding area

Loneliness and isolation are often thought of as the same thing since they are typically linked together. A senior may be physically isolated and not feel lonely, or they could be lonely and not be isolated at all. This is an important distinction since one cannot ward off senior isolation simply by trying to address the concept of loneliness. There are many ways to combat social isolation through home care services and companion care from a professional agency like Comfort Keepers is one of them. Get in touch with us today at 905-689-2273.

 

The Importance of Staying Socially Active

According to the AARP, warding off isolation in seniors, especially senior women, is not just effective at combatting loneliness, but also lowers the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. In fact, “Researchers reported that older women who maintained large social networks reduced their risk of dementia and delayed or prevented cognitive impairment…and women who had daily contact with friends and family cut their risk of dementia by almost half.”

How Comfort Keepers Can Help

Sadly, some seniors do not have large social networks or families with whom they can call or talk every day. This is where Comfort Keepers companion care comes in. Not only can caregivers address a senior’s need for help with daily living tasks, transportation, or errands, but they – more importantly – can impact a senior’s need for meaningful social, emotional, and cognitive engagement. Our caregivers can assist with the following daily tasks:

  • Meal preparation
  • Laundry
  • Mobility assistance
  • Transferring and positioning
  • Incidental transportation
  • Help with errands

Companion care is more than just watching television or looking at old pictures. While some seniors may enjoy this, there is no one-size-fits-all method for in home care. The secret is taking the time to find out what a senior is truly passionate about, their interests, their dislikes, and what they define as meaningful. 

After all, seniors may be surrounded by people and still feel isolated and lonely. Others may have just one, two, or three people with whom they talk and hang out, but due to the quality and meaning of their words and time together, they find themselves fulfilled. Some activities our caregivers can partake in include: 

  • Playing games
  • Working on puzzles
  • Going through old photo albums
  • Listening to music
  • Attending community outings
  • Visiting with friends and family

Personal Care

Beyond our companion care services, we also help seniors and their families address issues with personal care. Aging seniors may find it difficult to maintain personal hygiene or other personal upkeep. Our caregivers are trained to provide compassionate care with dignity to keep seniors feeling comfortable and confident. Personal care services include:

  • Bathing, grooming, and dressing
  • Toileting and incontinence care
  • Alzheimer’s and dementia care
