The services of Sequoia Senior Solutions provide the support of a friendly companion who can help seniors stay emotionally healthy
Seniors looking for a way to remain young and continue to enjoy their life will be excited to hear there is a true path to the fountain of youth. The best part is that reaching it is possible for everyone. The benefits are endless and you will enjoy the golden years of your life just as much as any other period of time. The secret to eternal youth is the company of friends and family, staying active, and making the most of the time you have been given. Initially, this may seem simple. However, if you are coping with chronic pain, a changing landscape of friends and family, or the inability to transport yourself around town, it can be tough to maintain a social life. This is where the help of companion care may come in. Sequoia Senior Solutions offers seniors the support of a friendly companion who can help them with their needs.
Those who experience daily pain may find it difficult to motivate themselves to get up in the morning, handle their household chores, and still have the energy to enjoy life. By the time they have finished with their personal care tasks and their chores are done, they are too tired to go out and socialize. While this is alright some days as we all have days where we just feel like curling up with a good book all afternoon, this is not a healthy habit when practiced daily. People need social stimulation to stay healthy. Enjoying the company of friends and family helps you feel better about life and your physical conditions. Often, the condition preventing you from enjoying life to the fullest can be helped by socializing.
Companion care will be able to help you restore your social life in the face of chronic pain in two ways. One, it will be able to help you with those every day chores that leave you worn out. Instead of using all of your energy to empty the dishwasher and mow the lawn, you can rely on the services of a helper from Sequoia Senior Solutions to help with these day-to-day activities. Second, the helper provides companionship in the home, even if your chronic conditions prevent you from socializing outside of it. If your family lives far away, and traveling to visit them is difficult, companion care gives you a chance to chat with someone daily. According to Stanton Lawson, co-owner and Chief Financial Officer of Sequoia Senior Solutions, caregivers are paired with seniors based on common interests. He points out, “This provides an opportunity to match a caregiver with a common interest and get the senior back to living a more enjoyable life.” This means you will have someone to visit with on the daily or weekly basis without ever leaving your home.
Another issue seniors find themselves dealing with is the constant flux in their social circles. As Family members grow up and move away, sometimes visiting with senior relatives becomes more challenging. In other cases, those friends upon whom seniors have relied their entire lives, become ill or pass away. The emotional strain can be tough on a senior, and it can be difficult to “move on” because things have changed so drastically. While a person in their middle age may be able to return to work and or to caring for their own children following the loss of a parent or grandparent, a surviving spouse may feel as if he has lost his reason for living. Avoiding this desolation can be tough, but having the companionship of someone helps you cope. So, if you are able to socialize and enjoy the activities you participated in prior to the changes, you can ease the healing process.
Finally, a senior may have a tough time maintaining an active social life for the simple fact he cannot get himself where he needs to go. If you cannot drive on your own, you can rely on the services of a companion caregiver to get you out and about.
The best way to stay young and enjoy your golden years is to enjoy the companionship of others. Socializing and staying active will help you maintain good physical and emotional help. If this is a challenge for you, contact Sequoia Senior Solutions to help you build a fulfilling social life.
