Elderly Services: Companionship

Living alone can jeopardize one’s quality of life and overall well-being by increasing the frequency of hospital visits, falls or loneliness. That is why individuals who reach their golden years are discouraged to live alone and are advised to avail of a companionship service. With companion care, seniors will experience the following benefits:



Sometimes you just need to tell someone something or talk to a person who will be there to listen. With elderly services, companionship provides an active and lively conversation with a professional caregiver. Staying social and active is pertinent to the longevity of mental and physical health. Studies have shown that social isolation and loneliness can pose risks for diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, weakened immune system, anxiety, depression, and cognitive decline.


Watchful attendant

In life, there are things you can no longer do when you get older just as eating high-fat meals, performing high-intensity exercises, and sleeping late. This is why elderly services offer a reliable caregiver to make sure that you are safe and healthy by carefully watching during day-to-day activities.


Better life outlook

Seniors who are alone in their own residences tend to have low self-esteem which may cause social isolation. However, with elderly services, all these negativities can subside with the companionship of a compassionate caregiver who seeks to encourage you to get out of the house, participate in any enjoyable activities, and mingle with other people. Studies have shown that social isolation was associated with about a 50% increased risk of dementia and other severe medical conditions.


Elderly services or personal care can be an easy solution to combat social isolation, assistance with daily activities, and companionship. Consider trying in-home care solutions before considering moving into a facility. Seniors are happier aging at home with companionship.
