Maintaining an active social calendar is key to staving on loneliness and depression, two things that can easily plague seniors. Find a live-in or hourly Palm Beach caregiver who can provide transportation to and from social activities and regular companionship for your senior loved one. Home Care Assistance caregivers can also assist with medication reminders, grocery shopping, cooking healthy meals, and will encourage mental stimulation through games and activities designed to delay cognitive decline.
