THE MOST RELIABLE COMPANIONSHIP CARE
Senior Helper’s in-home companion care programs are intended to improve your elderly loved ones’ health and well-being so that they can get the most out of life. Although many of our clients respect their freedom, there may come a time when they need additional assistance. When family and friends live far away, even a quick ride to the doctor's office or grocery store can be difficult to overcome.
The aim of Companionship Care Boise is to provide company and friendship. Companionship Care Boise may assist with household chores such as laying out towels before a shower, but their primary objective is to spend time with the patient. Adult children may want to employ companions to keep an eye on their elderly parents.

- Garbage collection
- Respite treatment
- Light housekeeping
Benefits of Companion Care
Companionship Care Boise is aware that exercise, a good diet, and adequate sleep help us remain healthy as we age. But did you know that social contact is among the most important aspects of living a long, healthy life, according to research?
Seniors who live alone often experience social isolation and feelings of depression, which causes harm to their well-being. Companionship is an essential aspect of senior care. It assists with everyday activities like housekeeping and personal care and offers a positive human interaction that significantly enhances life quality. Here are some of the advantages of senior companionship:
Longer Lifespan -
According to research, socially isolated seniors have an elevated risk of dying prematurely, regardless of underlying health conditions. Companionship offers seniors a social bond that helps them resolve loneliness and depression, and it has a positive effect on their overall health and well-being.
Alzheimer's disease prevention -
According to research, the more seniors engage socially, the higher their cognitive functioning. According to researchers, it only takes ten minutes of talking to someone else to enhance memory, offering the same boost as everyday games and puzzles. A large Swedish study also discovered that seniors who maintain stable relationships have a lower risk of developing dementia.
Reduced Risk of Heart Disease -
According to a new report, people who are depressed or socially withdrawn are 29 percent more likely to have coronary heart disease and 32 percent more likely to experience a stroke than socially active ones. According to these figures, isolation is on par with smoking and obesity as a risk factor for heart disease.
Faster Recovery -
Companionship, according to neuroscientists, helps patients heal from surgical pain quicker. According to research, people recovering from surgery who have a friend or partner nearby feel less nerve-related pain and have lower inflammation levels, which aids the healing process.
Peace of Mind -
Seniors can lose physical strength and mobility as they age, making it unsafe for them to live alone. They may be worried about what will happen to them in an emergency or if they fall. Companionship offers seniors a sense of security, knowing that someone is there to help keep them safe when necessary, and it also gives family members peace of mind.
