Senior Care To Help Improve Isolation Among Elders
Learn more about our loving senior care in Leelenau County, MI
Senior care experts understand the many health risks associated with isolation among elders. Not only can living alone be emotionally difficult, it can also manifest in the form of higher blood pressure, increased instances of mental illness and depression and greater likelihood of experiencing elder abuse, among many other complications. Add these risks to the growing number of American seniors who live alone and a problem on a large scale begins to emerge. If you believe you or your loved one who lives alone may be at risk of isolation, our care agency in Leelenau County may be able to help.
Our expert senior care providers can help your loved one with companionship care by providing regular and meaningful conversation and engagement with your loved one. This is what we call our Interactive Caregiving philosophy, which works to incorporate social and physical activity into a regular and consistent routine. Our Interactive Caregiving philosophy is rooted in scientific evidence that suggests such activities are widely beneficial to adults over 65. Caregivers and private duty nursing staff are encouraged to have meaningful interactions with each client they serve. This may mean sharing memories and opinions, engaging in activities such as games or household chores and sharing a daily exercise routine like walking or stretching.
We also work to make sure your senior loved one is encouraged to take part in activities outside the home as well. Our senior care agency works with a number of resources in Leelenau County to ensure events and activities of interest to our clients are made available to them. Some of these agencies include Leelanau County Senior Services, Elk Rapids Senior Center, Leelanau Township Library and many others.
Seniors who cannot or do not wish to drive can take advantage of our accompanied transportation services. This allows your loved one’s care aide to assist with the day’s preparations, make sure the client gets to and from any activities safely and on time and is returned home in good spirits afterward. We can also stay during these outings to provide support and companionship. Not only does this improve our clients’ safety, it also promotes comfort and participation.
