Senior Companion Care
Your aging loved one deserves to get the most out of life. MDC Healthcare’s companion care services help the elderly remain stimulated, independent, and engaged in their communities.
Senior companion care is a form of long- or short-term home care that assists older adults with activities of daily living and provides friendship and emotional support. Home care aides help clients with grocery shopping, light housekeeping, meal preparation, and more. Senior companion care is an affordable and flexible solution if your loved one has trouble performing daily tasks or simply needs someone for company and conversation.
Comfort and social interaction are essential to people’s lives, no matter their age.
Loneliness and social isolation can be fatal if unaddressed. According to the American Psychological Association, more than 42 million Americans identify as lonely, and that number will only increase over time. The stress that comes with living a lonely lifestyle can harm an older adult’s health, contributing to an increased risk of stroke, dementia, and early death.
MDC Healthcare understands how lonely senior life can be. Comfort and social interaction are essential to people’s lives, no matter their age. If you’re worried your loved one has lost their mobility or needs someone to turn to for emotional support, our caregivers are here to help in any way you need.
MDC Healthcare’s home health aides provide the support older adults need to stay happy, engaged, and productive at home.
Around 90% of seniors prefer to stay in their homes as they age, and with the many advantages aging in place offers, that statistic is no surprise. When your loved ones age in place, they experience higher life satisfaction, self-esteem, and quality of life. Building an environment for the seniors in your life that’s beneficial to aging in place can keep them happy and healthy for many years.
