The Benefits of having senior Companion

Senior companion, why is it important? Everyone needs care, attention, and love from their family members especially seniors. However, there are many old people who do live alone.  Especially when their children already have their own families. Even though all of their children are already independent, they should give enough time to spend with their parents so that their loneliness will be eliminated.

When seniors do not get proper attention and care, their senior health will be at risk and they can acquire a lot of diseases.  For example, such as stroke, cardiovascular disease, higher stress levels, decreased learning and memory, antisocial behavior, poor decision-making, Alzheimer’s disease, and a lot more. So, they should have a senior companion who will stay with them at all times.

    Xinang,
    I have been a senior companion for many years. My aunt is 84 and I take care of all of her needs around the house. All she has to do is cook and clean. She does not have to live alone and it gives me some help also. This does help her memory and health.

      Hi John, Thanks for the comments. Yes senior companion is extremely important. There have been many studies done, and seniors do live longer and are healthier with a companion. I think it is very important that we at least visit our older loved ones and check up on them. I hope you enjoy your aunt’s cooking!

      Hi Dawn,

      When my grandpa was alive, I always made time to see and ask how he were doing. He was a major inspiration in my life and had so knowledge to share. He lived in China for 30 years, then travel to and lived in Cuba for 18 years, and finally spending 40+ years in New York. Along the way, he was captured by the Japanese and made a prisoner; when Japan temporary invaded China. He somehow escaped, and somehow wounded up in Cuba. He was kicked out Cuba because of Castro, and found himself in New York. My grandpa was 93.

    These are great reasons to visit the eldery and spend time with them. I would make a point for visiting my Baba (grandmother) all the time. I loved the time we spent together and it has given me lasting memories. The health benefits of it too are a very good reason to spend time. We would go for walks and get out of the house, which was good for her. Thanks for this post!

      Spending time with grandparents is the best! They love the attention and time spend, and you must cherish the memories. If we are fortunate, we will all become grandparents ourselves.

    I like your giving advice to younger people how to handle elderly. Understanding them and helping them to do things they cannot do fully any more. It is very important for the younger generation to enter in contact with the older, not only for the benefit of the older but quite as much for the benefit of the younger who can learn from their wisdom.

    As far to having a companion in life… this is very valid in all ages., but especially in older ages when certain functions begin to whither. Unfortunately, exactly when people need another, normally nobody is around and the older people don’t ask and prefer to draw back. That has all sorts of consequences which could be avoided by being socially active.

      Hi Heidi, thanks for the comments. Older people are a great source of wisdom that can not be understated! The more you age you realized this fact. It is also very important to make sure elders are socially active. Yes, it is true that not all seniors will have companionship in late life due to many circumstances. However, they still can be active, if physically possible. My grandpa was going to senior centers and having lunch with his pals 7 days a week until he was 93.

    We all need a good friend. The benefits are endless from physical to emotional help, especially for seniors.

    Having a senior companion when you are older means you can share some great experiences together instead of being alone and lonely. What is the best place for seniors to make companions friends?

    • elderlysafetyproducts says:

      Hi Dinh,

      My Grandfather loved going to the senior center every single day. There he would mingle with his friends and spend the whole day. This really kept him motivated to get up every morning and leave the house. Another great place is the local park, where there are always other seniors. Especially by the chess and checkers area. In addition, my grandma enjoys going to a local cafe, where other seniors tend to congregate. Thanks for the feedback.
