True Companions

Companionships have significant impact on overall health and well-being

Social connections with both humans and animals can significantly improve the quality of life. They also make an integral part of senior care.

There are 5 important benefits to senior care.

1. Longer Life span

Companionships help seniors build social relationships that fight loneliness and depression. and have a significant impact on their overall health and well-being.

2. Protection against Dementia

Studies have shown that the more the seniors interact socially, the better they score on cognitive functioning. Researchers say it takes as little as ten minutes of talking to someone else to improve memory, providing the same results as daily games and puzzles.

3. Lower Risk of Heart Disease

A recent study found that people suffering from loneliness or social isolation were 29% more likely to develop coronary heart disease and 32% percent more likely to have a stroke than those who interact socially. These statistics were comparable to smoking and obesity, which are risk factors for heart disease.

4. Faster Rocovery

Neuroscientists believe that companionship helps patients recover faster from the pain of surgery. Tests show people recovering from surgeries that have a friend or companion nearby suffer less nerve-related pain and inflammation levels lower faster, aiding the recovery process.

5. Peace of Mind

Having a friend helps seniors feel secure knowing that someone is there to help them when needed. It also provides peace of mind for family members.

Most seniors want to stay at home as long as possible. But it's important to make sure your loved ones have good social interactions. This can be difficult if they are alone.

Having friends or caregivers not only helps your loved ones with their daily activities, but it also provides the necessary social boosts for them to lead

a healthy and happy life.
