Socializing is an important aspect of you/r patient's life. It can make them feel good and keep them feel like they're still part of the world.
As people, we're social creatures by nature, even those of us who aren't particularly outgoing. It's nice for a person to have the choice as to whether or not they see other people.
Nobody should be left to feel lonely.
Our caregivers make sure to provide companionship for patients who might seek more socialization.
These companionship services can include things like:
- Taking walks together
- Conversations about life or events
- Playing card/board games together
- Assistance with hobbies
- It's important that the caregivers are not only attentive but enjoy the company of their patient. We like to know that the patient doesn't feel alone and that there's no danger of an accident.
Other activities or hobbies people enjoy can continue to happen with the aid of a companion. The patient can continue to enjoy the things they like without feeling as though they don't have the opportunity to.
