We will always be by your side – your warm and friendly companion.
According to AARP, nearly 90% of people over age 65 want to live at home for as long as possible. However, seniors who live alone often experience social isolation and feelings of loneliness which can have a serious effect on their mental and physical health. In fact, research shows a direct relation between loneliness and increased blood pressure among seniors. Several studies have also determined that loneliness accelerates cognitive decline in older adults and is linked to an increased incidence of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
Our caregivers provide clients with a familiar face, friendly conversation, and a meaningful human connection. The goal of Avant Care’s personal approach to care management is to find an ideal match for every client. Caregivers are thoughtfully selected to ensure that their skills and personalities will be the best possible fit for your loved one. We have seen many of our caregivers develop meaningful relationships with clients, and we strongly believe that these friendships have a positive effect on their overall health and wellbeing.
