Senior Companionship

Loneliness can be a big problem for seniors – We can help

You do a lot. You call her every day, take her shopping, make sure the house is safe and clean, but your home and family life suffer and still, sometimes Mom is lonely. She doesn’t like to complain, but you can tell. As more of her friends face declining health and move to be closer to family, it will only be more difficult.

Home Instead Senior Care’s® companionship services not only relieve your stress and worry, but they also provide the healthy interaction and activity that are vital for seniors in retaining cognitive abilities, physical health and of course – happiness! Our kind and thoughtful CAREGiversSM truly enjoy working with seniors. And we find that most seniors are much more likely to accomplish tasks and participate in favorite activities when they simply have a companion with whom to enjoy them.

It can be even more difficult if Mom or Dad are temporarily hospitalized or in a nursing home. Should that occur, we can provide companionship, monitoring and reporting and more. More information on hospital/nursing home companionship services.
