Companion Care from Comfort Keepers

The Dangers of Loneliness

Loneliness is one of the biggest problems affecting older adults every day. More than one-third of people over the age of 65 in the United States live alone, and 43% of Americans report that they struggle with loneliness. In addition to the feeling of emptiness or isolation, loneliness can lead to serious health problems. Someone who spends most of their time alone without companion care is at a greater risk of the following conditions:

  • High Blood Pressure
  • Clinical Depression
  • Dementia or Cognitive Decline
  • Engagement in Risky or Unhealthy Behaviors 
  • Early Death 

Loneliness can be a vicious cycle as well, as the feelings are contagious. Those who are lonely and not getting the help they need may lose their friends or damage relationships with those who are unwilling to be around their negative energy. Loneliness can be made worse by placing a loved one in a nursing home or assisted living community, because the experience can be disorienting.

What is Companion Care?

We have come to realize that spending too much time alone can have serious mental and physical health consequences. This is why we provide companion care for seniors living alone. Our caregivers develop relationships with each of their patients and participate in their favorite activities. They can be there as a friend and a listening ear, but they can also assist with household chores or personal care needs as well.

Living alone doesn’t have to mean being lonely. Contact us to schedule a consultation with one of our care coordinators. We’ll carefully select a caregiver based on your needs and individual interests. Let us bring joy to your life or your loved one’s life though companion care.
