Helping maintain one’s dignity

Helping maintain one’s dignity

One of the worst feelings a person can experience is loneliness. I hear from many clients and their families about the emotional pain experienced when a senior feels isolated, forgotten and not needed. Emotional struggles can take an otherwise healthy senior and suck the energy and joy of life right out of them. Loss of self-worth and dignity makes for misery. It doesn’t have to be this way! We all hear about people who his a professional trainer to regain their physical fitness. We offers companion caregivers who can help a senior get up and work on their physical, mental and emotional fitness!

What are some options? First, the status and condition of the individual client should be assessed. Some people have physical limitations that rule out a lot of motion-related exercise. Did you know the YMCA has branches throughout Palm Beach and Broward Counties that offer a range of activities from Senior Strength and Golden Fitness, to water walking? Have you looked at the Silver Sneakers programs available in our local area? Many people qualify for Silver Sneakers health and wellness memberships through their Medicare programs and don’t know it. Silver Sneakers is a health and wellness program geared toward the needs of seniors. These are physical and social activities that promote wellness of body, mind and spirit. They refers caregivers who can work with seniors to integrate companionship at home together with outings to centers that offer these great programs. Our caregivers can help you connect with what’s going on around you and help get you there and back.

We try to learn and understand what needs exist for that person and how can we best assist in satisfying those needs. When we succeed we help build and maintain that person’s self-worth and dignity. Whether it’s just one or two visits per week or a daily plan of care, see how we can help your loved one feel healthy and cared for! It’s affordable, just give us a call.
