Live-in home care service provider, Touching Hearts at Home NYC focuses on the vital role of companionship to combat loneliness for older adults in Manhattan.
(PRUnderground) March 14th, 2022
A study recently conducted by the University of California, San Francisco stated that more than 40 percent of seniors regularly experience loneliness. That’s why Touching Hearts at Home NYC places the utmost importance on providing heartwarming companionship services as part of their live-in care service.
When an elderly lives alone, the feeling of loneliness can have serious and damaging effects on physical and mental wellbeing. Feelings of loneliness have been associated with an increased risk of mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and poor sleep. Those who are lonely are more at risk of sliding into unhealthy physical habits, such as over or under eating, alcohol and drug misuse, lack of exercise, and even altered brain function.
That’s why for Touching Hearts at Home NYC, companionship service is more than just a friendly conversation. The reality is that every person receiving in-home care has a different set of physical and emotional needs. Touching Hearts NYC’s caregivers focus on a client-centric mentality and offer person-centered care, which keeps a key focus on the vital role of companionship.
As a few example areas the caregivers offer person-centered companionship:
- Current or historical events discussion
- Making nutritious meals
- Games, cards, or other mind-stimulating activities
- Help with hobbies or crafts
- Watch movies/streaming services
- Read and discuss books, papers, and magazines
“Companionship is something that dramatically increases the quality of life for those receiving in-home care. It gives the senior population a sense of purpose and a reason to wake up looking forward to the day ahead. Many think that a friendly conversation is enough, but older adults are looking for meaningful connections. This could mean sitting down and helping with a craft project, or watching their favorite film with them,” said Craig Sendach, owner of Touching Hearts at Home NYC.
“Family members who are looking after elderly parents or grandparents are increasingly finding that they simply don’t have time to offer the quality of care that their elderly parents deserve. Your in-home care provider going above and beyond to offer companionship offers the elderly family member dignity and the opportunity to age with grace, without the damaging effects of loneliness.”
Touching Hearts at Home NYC operates in all areas across New York City and is passionate about providing in-home care services that offer integrity and dignity to those in need of home care.
