Ageism and Companion Care

What you believe now about your age speaks volumes about the way you will age later in life.   If you think you’re “old,” you are espousing ageism, a disease of attitude that puts certain age groups in a box.  Do you worry about your future that you will end up alone in a rocking chair and unable to move without a walker?  Are you afraid that you will be placed in an assisted living facility against your own will?  It is a little known fact that more and more seniors today are living longer lives with their physical and mental health more intact than ever before.  The elderly participate in sports like white water-rafting, skydiving and softball because they defy ageism.

Companion care is another way to combat ageism.  Home care agencies are not just for those who are in physical need, as most people might think.  They also provide companion care for recreational activities like going to the movies, going to hair and nail appointments, or paying visits to friends near and far.  A-1 Home Care has a pool of companions who will provide transportation and great company, even if that’s all you need.  Companion care is a proactive way to prevent or put off physical ailments.

To find a qualified senior companion, call A-1 Home Care today (818) 980-0094 or visit our website for more information.  We serve Burbank, Glendale, Altadena, Hollywood, and surrounding cities.
