Why is Companionship Care needed?
Social isolation and feelings of loneliness is detrimental to our mental health and in turn affecting our physical health too. Mental wellbeing is linked to our physical health; when we are feeling happy and positive, we tend to get well faster, and our body functions better.
When we link this to being older, perhaps with less mobility, and not seeing people as much as we used to, feelings of loneliness can creep in.
Some elderly people may not see many people face to face during a week and over time this will become a danger to mental health as loneliness and isolation creeps in
A companionship carer is there to help with and encourage social engagement.
