Our companion services for the elderly are particularly valuable for older adults in the Hanover, PA area who are at risk of senior isolation. By providing companion care on a regular basis, our caregivers can help isolated seniors avoid the damaging effects to mental and physical health that senior isolation can bring about.
Companion Care Services for the Elderly
Older adults are more prone to social isolation than any other age group. Many have physical difficulties or disabilities that prevent them from leaving their home. Others simply don’t have the energy to go out. Adults who relied on the workplace for social interaction often struggle to find other social outlets after retirement. Problems can be especially acute for single seniors and those who live far away from their children.
Beyond loneliness, senior isolation can have a devastating impact on mental and physical health. Isolated seniors are more prone to stress, insomnia, depression, frailty, and illness. There is a strong correlation between social isolation and a reduced lifespan among the elderly.
