Elderly Companion Care in Miami, FL
The team of professional caregivers at Advancare is passionate about providing compassionate care for our clients, and that goes beyond simply assisting with daily living. As dedicated caregivers, we also are proud to provide loving companionship that is vital for both the physical and emotional health of seniors. Elderly companionship is one of our most popular services, and it covers a wide range of caregiving duties.
What is Companion Care for Elderly in Miami?
When you think of senior in-home care services, the first thing that comes to mind may be a caregiver helping a senior do their laundry, complete their daily tasks, or remember to take their medication. While the caregivers at Advancare certainly do all of these things, we also provide elderly companion care.
Elderly companion care providers complete a wide range of services for elderly clients, with most of them centered around attending to the social needs of the senior. While things like nutrition, exercise, and sleep are certainly essential to the health of a senior, staying in touch with their social network and maintaining connections is just as important. Unfortunately, as seniors age, their social networks may become smaller, as longtime neighbors move or pass away, family members move away, and they become increasingly homebound.
Boost Mental Wellbeing
Social isolation has been shown to increase the risk of physical health complications and mortality, and activities such as interacting with a companion care provider can be an essential lifeline. Companion care providers can help by providing:
- Encouragement and comfort
- Playing mind-stimulating games and cards
- Reminiscing about the past
How Does Companion Care Differ from In-Home Caregivers?
When choosing from our services at Advancare, you may need to choose between companion care and in-home care. Of course, you can always choose both, but companion care has more to do with socialization and providing help in completing tasks such as laundry, chores, and transportation.
On the other hand, our in-home personal care services are more centered around physical assistance to seniors, such as bathing, dressing, and other forms of non-medical assistance.
How Seniors Can Benefit
One of the biggest challenges facing homebound seniors is the lack of socialization, especially if they live alone. Like anybody else, seniors need to be engaged with the world in order to feel fulfilled and happy, which is difficult to do when you cannot leave the house. A companion caregiver can help by discussing the latest book that they read, taking a walk, or reminiscing about the past, or talking about friends or family members.
