More than 40% of seniors experience loneliness, according to a recent University of California, San Francisco study. Many seniors, regardless of whether they live at home or in a senior living facility or skilled care facility, may go the entire year without a personal visit from a family member or a friend. How can this be?!
We all need love! We all need relationships! We all need to know that we matter, and that someone out there cares about us! Many times it is the busyness of life that keeps family members away from seeing their elderly parents and friends on a regular basis. That's where your friendly and compassionate members of the Oklahoma Professionals for Home Care come in!
Our member agencies can provide companion care for your loved ones! Our loving staff are trained to provide conversation, spend time playing games, take them shopping, do gardening, take them to appointments or to visit other family members and more! It's our pleasure to fill in that gap where work and other commitments might prevent family and friends from being able to consistently do those things for their elderly loved ones!
Beyond that, our agencies are also able to provide essential personal care services like bathing assistance, toileting assistance, dressing, help with walking and transferring and eating too. We provide respite care for couples, where one member may be struggling with the difficulties of advancing conditions like dementia, Alzheimer's or Parkinson's. While our staff stays with the loved one with the advancing ailment, the loved one in better health is able to get some much needed free time away. This allows them to stay healthy, physically, mentally and emotionally!
Whatever your needs are, we would love to assist you in helping to show some love to your loved ones! We are certain you love them! Let us be are part of that loving process! Contact one of our OPHC member agencies today for more information!
