Be Thankful for Senior Companion Services this Holiday Season

By Debbie Humphrey

It is hard to believe Thanksgiving is merely days away and Christmas is around the corner. Where has the time gone? The truth is, the older we get, the faster time seems to escape.

For most of us, preparations are well underway for Turkey Day, and we are busy scrambling to plan a menu, formulate a grocery list, and carefully check the weekly circulars to find the sales before we shop. Perhaps, you’re one of the lucky ones who gets to travel to a relative’s home this year, rather than stressing about cooking and entertaining everyone.

In the hustle and bustle that are the holidays, we must not forget the seniors in our lives. Are they able to drive themselves to the holiday venue this year? Are they going to be alone without family or friends? Are they capable of preparing a healthy meal on their own? Now is the time to answer those questions honestly and take measures to ensure your aging loved ones have the benefit of senior companion services.

There is no need to worry about Grandma or Uncle Lou being depressed or lonely when their family is too far away to celebrate together. Senior companion services are available by the professional caregivers at Home Helpers. These kind-hearted specialists efficiently and effectively manage transportation needs, shopping, meal preparation, personal care and companionship 24/7, 365 days-a-year.

Thanksgiving Day was established during the infancy of our country as an opportunity for Americans to gather with thankful hearts and share their gratitude for life’s blessings. Senior Citizens are people to whom we owe enormous gratitude and respect. Their vast body of knowledge and wealth of life experiences are priceless, as technology continues to lead our culture in new directions, far from the ways of yesteryear.

Bless someone you care about this holiday season, and they will be truly thankful, indeed!. All it takes is a phone call to arrange the perfect senior companion services for your loved one, thanks to the benevolent team of understanding caregivers that are Home Helpers. 727-942-2539.
