Senior Services In West Chester
Respect your elders is an expression that gets tossed around a lot but how many people actually follow through on it? In North American culture, we can often be too quick to tuck senior citizens away in nursing homes. And while there is no question that certain seniors can thrive in nursing homes, having found a new social circle or enjoying the structure provided by having a staff of trained professionals on the premises, there are still a great deal of seniors who feel as thought they have lost their dignity and purpose at this late stage in their lives. That’s why so many seniors in West Chester would rather try to maintain their normal lives for as long as possible, no matter how difficult it can be.
Once an elderly person’s dignity and sense of purpose is gone, it typically doesn’t take long for their mental and physical condition to start to deteriorate. So, what can you do to help maintain high spirits during this difficult stage in life? It’s difficult, especially given the physical and cognitive limitations seniors must navigate if they live on their own or in an assisted living facility.
Well, one of the best remedies is to find a way to make time to make sure they feel valued. And the best way to make someone, whether they are a senior citizen or a young child, feel valued is through compassion. Compassionate care is medical and emotional care for patients that makes their lives more comfortable.
It might sound simple, but there are plenty of families in West Chester who have to fight and scrap to make ends meet and are unable to find time to provide additional care and attention to the senior citizens in their lives. And that’s where Compassionate Senior Companions can be of service.

Restoring Independence Through Compassionate Care
We age gradually, but sometimes ‘old age’ comes out of nowhere. Your parents might have seemed fine when you visited last Christmas, but now their lives might be in decline. The decline might not even be physically noticeable. Your parents might be experiencing a decline in their mental health, which can be very difficult to detect. They might look fine, but there could be large portions of the day where early-onset dementia or Alzheimer’s disease has taken control of their lives.
Our elderly parents might not want to admit that there is anything wrong. It can be difficult for anybody to ask for help. People, especially parents, don’t want to lose their independence. They want to be reliable. They want to be helpful to their children, grandchildren, and friends. They want to hold onto their pride and independence.
Your parents might be experiencing only a temporary loss of mobility. Maybe they have just undergone a complicated surgery, or they are recovering from a minor injury. Compassionate Senior Companions can be of assistance no matter what the case may be. When we work with our clients, we don’t want them to feel like they are not involved in their lives. When we are helping with daily chores, meal preparation, or transportation needs, we are doing it in partnership with the client. We are merely assisting them through their continued independence.
Do Your Parents Require Senior Care Services?
It can be difficult to tell if your loved ones require assistance. It is a difficult subject to talk about. If you look closely, however, you can sometimes spot the signs. The clue might be a late bill payment or notice from a collection’s agency. These might be indicators of forgetting to pay utility bills on time. It could be several dents or scratches on your parent’s vehicle that they can’t explain or remember the details of.
Some of the other signs to watch out for include:
- • Yard in need of maintenance
- • Disheveled clothes
- • House in need of maintenance
- • Bruises on body
- • Forgetfulness and missing important appointments
- • Spoiled food in refrigerator
Some of these things are more startling than others. Though spoiled food seems innocent, it still means that your loved one may be alone often. When people are alone too much, they will lose interest in the things they once enjoyed doing such as tidying or meal preparation.
That’s why we offer what is sometimes as simple as companionship. Though it seems trivial, socialization and friendship are essential to our well-being. Compassionate Senior Companions wants to make sure that every individual receives the care and attention they deserve.
