At HomeWell Care Services, we’ve seen how social isolation and loneliness can negatively impact a client’s health, well-being and quality of life. It’s often more serious than we realize; ongoing, extended periods of seclusion increase the risk for depression, dementia and other serious chronic medical conditions. To solve this problem affecting countless seniors and others who are homebound, we created our Life Enrichment Activities Program (LEAP). With LEAP, our clients get to do the things they love alongside their dedicated HomeWell caregiver and break the monotony of being home alone.
Our Life Enrichment Activities Program (LEAP) enhances home care with activities designed to eliminate boredom and vastly improve the enjoyment of life. Our thorough assessment of each client’s abilities allows us to tailor engagement opportunities to them. Simple activities like an afternoon excursion or learning a craft can vastly improve the quality and enjoyment of life. Clients benefit from more companionship activities and the chance to explore new things, both of which help keep their spirits young and vital.
Studies show that people who engage in meaningful, productive activities with others tend to live longer, experience improved moods, and maintain a continued sense of purpose.
