Our Senior Home Care Assistance Includes Interactive Caregiving For Improved Health
Learn more about how our senior home care assistance can help your loved one
Think of the significance of physical and social activities for kids. Children learn to interact with others, keep their bodies and brains healthy and build friendships as they mature. For adults, physical and social activities assist in counterbalancing the pressures of work, family, and life, and result in more fulfilling and happy lives. The recipe is no different when we are aging. Our home health agency creates senior home care assistance plans that can help.
Comfort Keepers Home Care in Bridgewater has specialized caregivers who provide senior home care assistance to help your loved one carry out the necessary physical and social activities to improve their health. We make sure your loved one receives the right amount of exercise and activity necessary to improve health and overall quality of life. This approach to care is part of our Interactive Caregiving Philosophy. Interactive Caregiving activities are particularly helpful for seniors in the following ways:
- Build and maintain relationships
The brain needs varied stimulation and this can be an area of need for the elderly who interact with few people on a regular basis. Social activities stimulate the human brain and keep neurons firing. Activities can range from chatting with a companion or healthcare aide, joining a book club, going to bingo night or taking up lawn bowling. As we grow older, it’s best to enjoy the advantages of a wide-ranging social network, meet new people and build new relationships.
- Stimulate the mind
All physical and social activities provide some degree of mental stimulation. Whether it is playing cards with friends, joining a cooking class or taking up gardening, each activity keeps the body and brain occupied. Not only are the activities fun, they also keep the brain of the home care recipient healthy and sharp.
- Improve well-being and health
Based on research, seniors who are occupied in frequent social activities report better self-perception and reduced levels of life dissatisfaction and loneliness. Seniors are said to see health benefits such as reduced risk of arthritis, cardiovascular issues, Alzheimer’s disease and mental health problems, such as depression when they are socially and physically active.
- Stay connected
If elderly individuals do not make a conscious effort to remain social or physically active, they may withdraw from the world and suffer the emotional, physical, and mental effects of inadequate social stimulation. Social and physical activities offered through Comfort Keepers senior home care assistance services help provide a feeling of purpose, whether it’s just the routine of having a schedule and a place to be, or perhaps the feeling of achievement which comes from realizing a goal. Social activities help the elderly stay occupied and active in the community.
