ComForcare home care franchises work with local clients to help improve seniors’ independence and health while they age at home. For some clients, it becomes increasingly difficult to enjoy an active social life due to health and mobility constraints. Home care providers from ComForcare work with clients and their families to enable seniors to still enjoy their favorite hobbies, social events, and attend community functions.
“Everyone needs social interaction, but seniors are especially vulnerable to feelings of isolation, loneliness and depression if they spend long periods of time alone,” said ComForcare Home Care President, Mark Armstrong. “Our home care professionals work with clients to ensure they have the companionship and care they need to live a healthy, independent life.”
Franchise Teams Offer Personalized Assistance
ComForcare franchises across the country assist seniors in staying active and social in many ways. One ComForcare office worked with a client who was no longer able to attend meals at her retirement home. The client’s ComForcare caregiver planned and prepared meals for her and invited the client’s friends and family over to share the meal together to provide her company.
ComForcare helps clients by providing transportation and companionship for community social events. Home care providers talk to clients to learn what types of events interest them and help with plans and transportation to such events. Other examples include enabling clients to attend theater, musical or ballet performances or to find and meet with a local club or hobby group.
Companionship in the Home
For some individuals, chronic illnesses or injuries make it difficult for them to travel to events or activities. In these situations, home care professionals work with clients to provide companionship services or invite friends and family over for a meal or game night. Home care providers will spend time with clients just having conversation about their interests, hobbies, and families or reminiscing about the past. This helps alleviate depression and improves mental and physical health for seniors.
If you know an older adult who would benefit from additional social stimulation or companionship, contact a local ComForcare home care franchise. Home care services can be scheduled on a part-time or full-time basis according to the client’s individual needs. ComForcare home care providers are carefully matched with clients based on mutual interests, experiences and personality to ensure the highest quality of care.
“Your loved one’s caregiver will be there to listen and be someone to talk with when he or she wants to reminisce about the past, talk about grandchildren or discuss current events,” said Armstrong.
