How A Senior Care Aide Helps In The Home
Comfort Keepers senior care aide offers affordable solutions for older adults living at home
Comfort Keepers of Rochester, NY, cares a great deal about the elderly in this fine city. Many older adults have an opportunity to age in place with the help and support of a trained senior care aide.
Aging alone at home, though, can be a lonely business. It can also have detrimental consequences in the longer term. Our special companionship care plans exist to curb loneliness and isolation issues.
The significance of quality companion care should not be underestimated.
A Senior Care Aide Improves Wellbeing
There are plenty of recognized advantages to regular interaction with others. Yes, it offers essential social and emotional support, but that's not all. Here are just a few of them:
- Caregiver helps out with tasks that are potentially hazardous for the senior
- Someone there to provide those vital medication reminders
- Good company helps to curb negative emotions brought about by isolation
- Visits from the senior care aide give clients something to look forward to
The Potential Harms of Senior Aloneness
Few ever complain. Yet loneliness and a lack of regular social interaction can result in the decline of physical and mental wellbeing. Companionship care can fend off these harmful issues.
Whenever possible we encourage clients to re-engage with the outside world with our help. For a lot of seniors—especially older ones—it's been a while since they had meaningful conversations.
It's not only good to talk—it's nourishment for the soul. Reminiscing is especially important to a lot of older adults. A Comfort Keeper senior care aide has a genuine interest in helping clients to open up.

More Than Good Company
More often than not our companionship care plans are part of a broader care program. Yes, we're there to provide good company, but we also tailor a plan based on the senior's needs and expectations.
Depending on the age and ability of the senior, a senior care aide may also help with certain jobs around the home. Some of these may include chores like the following:
- Pay bills for client
- Grocery shopping together
- Meal preparation, dining with the client, and cleaning up afterward
- Light housekeeping
- Small repairs such as fixing a light bulb, for example
- Help care for any pets and plants in the home
- Letter writing either physical or email
- Help to fill out various applications and other forms
Everything we do and each plan we devise shares a common theme. That is, to help seniors who want to age at home do so in a way that's fulfilling, independent, and provides contentment.
