Growing old can be difficult, but it’s inevitable that all of us will need new kinds of care as we age. Companionship, home safety, wellness—these are essentials to maintain. Comfort Health in Rochester, MN, can help you and loved ones find the services you need.
Companion Care. Everyone would love to be available to care for their elderly parents or loved ones, but often this simply is not an option. Parents might be hesitant to ask their children for help, don’t want to burden others with their care or loneliness, and simply do not like to talk about (or admit) any health or emotional issues they may be experiencing. That’s why companion care can be very beneficial to the health and wellbeing of senior family members. Perhaps your loved one is still completely independent but could use a helping hand with light household chores or someone to visit with. Companion care services can help by spending time with them and keeping them socially engaged.
When seniors find that they have many medical appointments and need assistance with transportation, companion care services are there to help. They assist with reminders of appointments, provide emotional support, get them involved in activities if the client desires, and will support them with friendly conversations and light housework if needed.
Home safety. Having an elderly loved one who lives a distance away can be challenging, leaving you worrying about the safety of them in their own home. Falls worry anyone with an elderly parent. Companion care services can give you the peace of mind to know your loved one is in good helping hands.
Wellness program. Having your loved one enrolled in a wellness program can be a substantial benefit. Symptoms of osteoporosis, hypertension, diabetes, and arthritis can all be minimized with a wellness program. For example, regular physical activity, social interactions, and a healthy diet are all factors in decreasing symptoms of hypertension and diabetes. Additionally, an exercise and wellness program can help alleviate the pain and swelling of osteoporosis and arthritis.
