Aging at home is a great alternative to a live-in care facility for older loved ones. However, as Mom or Dad settle into receiving care at home, it’s not uncommon for them to experience a sense of isolation. As we age, it can become more challenging to attend regular social events, connect with long-time friends that may also be on their own care journey, and participate in regular activities outside of the home. This can leave older adults missing their former social life and longing for more connection. That’s where senior companionship services can help.
Working with a trusted home care agency can help provide vital social activity for aging adults who are feeling lonely or isolated as they age at home.

The Importance of Companionship Care
Senior isolation is a real concern. The National Council on Aging reports that senior isolation and loneliness can contribute to major health concerns, including…
- Heart disease
- A weakened immune system
- And anxiety
While the causes of senior isolation may vary, the effects are the same. However, in-home companionship services offer the consistent connection and relationship building that can help avoid these issues.
