We all know how important friends and companions are during our formative years. They provide laughter, solace, and support during our most difficult of times. But did you know that emotional bonds are just as crucial as we grow older? Ironically, although retiring leaves us more time to spend with those we care about, it can actually be more difficult to accomplish. Loved ones may live far away, and as we age, they may even have passed on. This is a large part of why many elderly people feel isolated in their own homes; they are left without the bonds and support they’ve known their entire lives.
And such companionship provides more than just emotional and psychological benefits. It may also prevent physical and cognitive decline. The more often people use their mental faculties to interact, the longer those faculties remain at optimum levels. And as far as physical aspects are concerned, it’s always a good idea to have someone supervising an elderly person who is no longer completely independent. This way, they may be able to avoid dangerous falls, medical crises, and other emergencies.
But where can you find outstanding care to look after your loved one when you’re not there? The answer is simple: the Institute on Aging.
The right companion can make all the difference
It’s not a great idea to hire just any home care company and hope for the best. You need dedicated, experienced professionals to visit regularly. The right companion for your loved one can make all the difference in both their physical and mental state. As such, the IOA has strict standards for anyone who wants to be on our team, which lets us provide your loved one with the best service in the industry.
Even before they start work with us, our staff is thoroughly screened, interviewed, and has a criminal background check performed. They also undergo additional training throughout their tenure, so that they are constantly updated on the latest developments and skills regarding elder care. Every employee we hire is compassionate, caring, and experienced in meeting the specific needs and challenges of the aged. They are also insured and bonded by our agency, so all the important details are taken care of before they even walk through your door.
If you’re looking for the kind of sincerity and attentiveness you’d provide to your own loved one, then the IOA is the agency for you.
