Comfort Keepers Offers Senior Care To Aging Adults Living Alone In Rapid City, SD
If your loved one is suffering from isolation, Comfort Keepers senior care may be able to help
The senior population increases with each passing year, continuing a trend of increased numbers of individuals over the age of 65 living alone. While living alone in and of itself is not problematic, it can become so when an individual begins to feel the effects of isolation, which ultimately can cause significant health problems like high blood pressure, increased mental illness and a number of other negative side effects. Comfort Keepers Rapid City understands the devastating impact isolation can have and work to incorporate social activity into all of our senior care plans.
When you begin working with Comfort Keepers Rapid City, a care expert will assess your loved one’s individual situation to determine how much care and what kind of care he or she will need. At this point, a regular schedule will be laid out and your loved one will be assigned a regular caregiver. Your loved one’s caregiver will work to engage him or her in activities around the house, conversation, games and other activities to reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation. Seniors who are still able to assist with some household tasks may be included in these as well. Senior care providers share recipes, jokes and empathy which can forge a strong bond of care and friendship.
Comfort Keepers Rapid City also works to provide social opportunities for seniors outside the home by forming strong ties with the community and local agencies and groups that offer resources, events and activities for seniors. We believe our clients deserve to have the most access to available social opportunities in Rapid City. Your care provider will happily provide transportation to any social gathering or event that your senior loved one wishes to attend and can arrive early to help clients prepare for the day, accompany them during the event if desired, assist them in and out of the car and to and from each event to ensure safety and comfort.
