Physical and mental changes that come along with aging and isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic make it even more challenging for seniors. Beyond the basic needs of the cooking, cleaning, shopping and transportation, we provide: Companionship. Seniors who live alone are particularly prone to feeling isolated and lonely with reduced human interaction. A companion can play games with them, help put together puzzles, cook with them, or even just looking at old photo albums together. Technology Help. Voice-driven devices, such as Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home, can be great for seniors because they can use them for functions such as turning on and off lights, the television and more. If the senior owns a laptop or tablet, they can help them learn how to use or set up video-chat programs such as Zoom in order to stay connected and participate in our online fitness classes. Reminders. To take medication, upcoming calendar events to remember (granddaughter’s birthday) and more in a place where seniors can easily access them. This is especially helpful for those with cognitive function disorders such as dementia. Exercise. Whether it’s going for a walk, dancing to music, physical therapy home exercise program or setting up zoom and assisting them while participating in our virtual fitness classes, a companion can help stimulate mood-lifting endorphins. Give us a call to talk about a customized plan that is right for you or your loved one's needs.
