The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the vulnerability of our elderly population to isolation and depression. It might be tempting to think that the pandemic is the primary cause of these problems, this kind of thinking can be problematic. As providers of Non-Medical Home Care Services will tell you, the issue already existed before COVID-19 happened.
Treating COVID-19 as the cause of isolation and depression can hide the real reason and relegate the problem to the background once the pandemic ends. We at Changing Lives Homecare, a leading provider of Personal Care in North Carolina, believe that the real reason is less sinister but more damaging. The real reason is that the elderly have no real companions when family members are out and about doing work or school.
Having the elderly under a comprehensive program can be a solution to this problem. A Companion Service program under a trusted provider of Home Care in Jacksonville, North Carolina, perhaps? Here are some of the benefits that the elderly and their families can enjoy:
- A trusted companion and care provider can help alleviate feelings of isolation and depression.
- Companions can assist with people-related tasks such as arranging appointments, accompanying doctor’s visits, and many more.
- Our skilled companions also have the training and experience to provide home assistance like watering and caring for house plants, sleep management, and many more.
The list above gives a clear picture of the services offered by our companions. However, it is not the complete picture. To know more of the benefits and services that we are offering through this service, please contact us. Our staff members will help you with any questions or reservations you may have.
