Aging is an increasingly lonely business. The New York Times reported recently that 26 million Americans who are 50 or older now live alone. The percentage of American households with just one occupant is 30%, and even higher, at 36%, for people over 50 living on their own. While we don’t tend to think of age 50 as “old” or “elderly,“ isolation and lack of social contact is detrimental to physical and mental health.
Caring Hearts Premier Home Care of Palm Desert, CA, provides senior companion care. From simple conversation to assistance getting out and about in the community, senior companion care can brighten an elder’s life and help them maintain the social connections that are so vital to a fulfilling life.
Our companionship services for seniors can encompass activities like shopping and running errands, accompanying a senior to cultural events and performances, transportation to medical appointments, and general help around the house. Whether your loved one enjoys playing board or card games; trips to the local recreation center for a swim; or shopping for houseplants, décor, or new clothes, our companions can help.
Aging doesn’t have to be lonely—it can be a very enriching and active time of life with the right help. Companions from Caring Hearts Premier Home Services are trained to treat clients with compassion and respect. They also get to know their clients as individuals with unique interests. Your senior family member may enjoy attending a sporting event or simply watching the event on television with them. Whether a senior wants to bake, paint, dance, or go to educational lectures, they can get support from Caring Hearts companions and share activities they enjoy with them. This relieves them of the worry of figuring out transportation or finding they don’t know anyone in their art or cooking class. They’ll always have someone to share the experience with when a companion from Caring Hearts is with them.
