How Elderly Companion Services Can Improve Seniors’ Health

As your loved ones age, you may find that they seem withdrawn. This could be because they find tasks more difficult, they no longer take part in activities they enjoy or they’re lonely. While you’re likely helping them out as much as you can, elderly companion services can help further improve their quality of life. A companion can work with your loved one to maintain their well-being both physically and emotionally.

iCare Home Health’s Friend at Home program will match your loved one with an elderly companion who has a similar personality and can support their needs. Here are a few ways our companions assist the elderly:

Meal Preparation
Our companions can aid your loved one in making a grocery list, accompany them on trips to the store and assist with light cooking. For those who find kitchen tasks difficult, you can rest easy knowing that our companion will monitor their safety. If your loved one prefers not to eat alone, our companions can also provide company at mealtime.

Errands and Doctor Visits

If it’s difficult for you to take time off work to attend your loved one’s medical appointments, an elderly companion can cover that duty. Our companions will drive your family member to doctor visits in the Oakville area. They can also provide transportation for your loved one’s errands as well.

Light Housekeeping

As tasks become difficult around the home, iCare Home Health’s elderly companions will assist in keeping things tidy. While their main goal is to provide personal support to your loved one, our companions can perform basic chores and encourage participation from your family member where possible.

Social Activity

Elder care home health with us extends beyond the home. If your loved one enjoys going for walks, visiting the local community centre or various other activities, our companions will do their best to see that they maintain their hobbies. This physical and mental stimulation will go a long way in improving their well-being as they age.

Updates to Family

As part of our elderly companion services, the iCare Home Health team will provide regular updates regarding your loved one’s progress. These check ins will ensure you remain up to date on their activity levels and any changes to their well-being that need attention.

If you’re finding it difficult to spend enough time with your ageing family members, it may be time to look into hiring a companion.
