Loneliness plagues seniors across the country. The reasons for loneliness's prevalence in the senior community are plenty and include the loss of partners and friends to age and disease, children moving away for work and physical and mental challenges posed by the aging body. Some seniors have found that pets help ward off loneliness at least to a certain extent. However, the same reasons we mentioned that cause loneliness in the senior population are precisely why seniors are unable to keep pets. Thankfully, with help from in home care, your loved one will be able to keep their pet and cope with loneliness.
Of course, when most people think of pets, the first type of pet that comes to mind is dogs, and it is no wonder, really. These wonderful creatures have not been dubbed man's best friend for nothing. Dogs and humans bond quickly and are able to support each other with unconditional love unlike any other love out there. They love us almost instantly, and are loyal and always there for us when we need it most.
When it comes to keeping a dog, however, some seniors may not be able to carry out everything that needs to be done to keep their furry friend happy and healthy. An in home care professional can step in at this point and do some of the grunt work, allowing your loved one to focus on enjoying their pet.
An in home care professional will be your loved one's right-hand man when it comes to caring for their furry friend. If your parent is unable to bend over, a caregiver can clean up after the dog for them. An in home care professional can also walk the dog if your loved one is not able to go outside for some reason like being bedridden, or the whether being inappropriately hot or cold for them.
Cleaning the house is a major issue when it comes to pet owning, an in home care professional can step in here as well. As part of our regular companionship care program, Comfort Keepers offers light housekeeping, so one of our caregivers can help your loved one in this department as well.
The key to quality caregiving is making sure we are helping your loved one with all the day-to-day help they need, but also with the things that make them happy. Making the most of the Golden Years is crucial to happiness and we want to help your loved one get there.
