Realizing that your Elderly or Senior loved one is suffering depression can be difficult, and perhaps even a shock to discover. Whether your loved one is up-front about their depression or when you can indirectly sense that something is wrong, how can you make things right? Elderly depression can stem from many factors, including a the recent death of a close friend or loved one, a health condition or declining health, losing their sense of purpose, and a number of other reasons. It’s understandable if your loved one can’t tell you the root of the problem, as it can be a very personal matter, but you can help them put their mind elsewhere to focus on positive aspects of life.
How can you help your loved one when you live far away or your schedule doesn’t allow for frequent visits? A-1 Home Care provides Companion Services on a 24 hour live-in basis or hourly part-time basis. For those who are unfamiliar with home care, having a caregiver, nurse aide, or companion care for your loved one can help them remain independent in the comfort of their homes and have someone to talk to and participate in activities with.
