Living alone doesn’t have to be lonely. In addition to any other services you choose from Age at Home, your caregiver brings hours of a social connection and professional friendship. Having someone to talk with can brighten any day. Your caregiver can also join you in a game of cards, or help you with a craft or hobby. Just let us know what makes you happy.
Social isolation is seldom a choice, but for many seniors, it’s a sad reality. Let your Age at Home caregiver help by making arrangements for you to get out and about, or to host friends at your place.
The doctor, the dentist, the foot-care provider at the senior center, the furnace maintenance guy. Living in your home means needing appointments to attend to your personal health and the condition of your home. Age at Home caregivers can take some of that stress off you by making the appointments needed to keep everything in order.
Keeping in touch with loved ones is an important social grace that helps you feel connected and remembered. If writing has become too difficult, your Age at Home caregiver can lend a hand. As you dictate, our staff will capture your sentiments and help you get your letters into the mail or email.
Often, hearing and vision decline and make it difficult to make phone calls or write letters and email. Or, you may want to give a family member regular updates on your health and activities—a task that’s too taxing for you to do every day. An Age at Home caregiver can help you keep in touch appropriately with your loved ones.
In today’s culture, electronic social networks such as Facebook can keep families informed, entertained and involved in each other’s lives, even when distance separates them. If this kind of connectivity appeals to you, ask Age at Home for assistance. We can help you get started and regularly check in, to see and share what’s happening with your loved ones.
