Home Health Care Services: Social Wellness Is Beneficial For Seniors

Jul 18, 2018 by Garrett Sullivan

When you graduate into your golden years, a lot in life starts to change and your loved one may experience a great deal of changes. Often times, seniors suffer from depression, loneliness, and isolation because they go through these changes alone and have no one to talk to. Home health care services providers recommend that your loved have a strong support system that can uplift them, especially when they experience life events such as the death of someone they were close to.

Your loved one’s home health care services team will recommend that your senior get involved in activities that promote senior wellness. These types of activities offer many benefits from improved immune health to better sleep and more productivity. Studies that have been conducted show that social wellness can lead to a reduction in the development of dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Often, seniors are not involved in social wellness activities because they do not know what options are available to them. Below, our home health care services team will present some ideas to help them get started:

  • Continue to learn by attending local college classes or online
  • Invite friends over for tea and cookies
  • Join in on an exercise class
  • Find a new interest or hobby
  • Volunteer and be involved in the community
  • Offer assistance to someone in the family
  • Utilize social media to remain connected with friends and family
  • Get a part-time job
  • Join a senior center and participate in activities
  • Reach out to a place of worship and see how you can help in upcoming activities

Comfort Keepers offers affordable home health care services that can allow your loved one to remain independent in his or her home. Our services are designed to promote social wellness too. Call today to learn more
