Cheerful Heart Program
When you can’t be around to check on your loved one on a regular basis, it’s natural to worry. But what if you could have peace of mind knowing that your loved one is okay? What if you could hear the smile in a loved one’s voice, even over the phone, it’s a comforting and uplifting feeling. Everyone can use more reasons to smile, particularly older adults who shy away from group activities or are unable to spend the amount of time they’d like with family and friends.
Touched By An Angel Senior Care is helping put smiles on the face of seniors in our communities, bringing them happiness wherever they call home with our Cheerful Heart Program!
What is Touched By An Angel Senior Care Cheerful Heart Program?
Our Cheerful Heart Program helps family members ensure that their loved ones stay engaged and happy while aging in place at home (in a facility or private residence) by providing affordable, one hour visits aimed at encouraging conversation and activities.
What are the Benefits?
Our Cheerful Heart Program can help to alleviate loneliness, improve appetite, increase cognitive function, improve healing time, increase physical health and make your loved one feel important. Whether it’s a friend to share lunch with or someone to take a walk with, or someone to laugh with and tell stories to, these little moments can brighten anyone’s day.
Our Cheerful Heart Program begins with an in-depth interview with the client and members of his or her family support system where we get to know the client’s likes, dislikes, hobbies, favorite activities, social interests, and general personality better. We then match each client with a companion who best matches his or her personality and interests, to ensure that everyone has a positive and pleasant experience with our program.
From there, our specially trained companions can put a smile on your loved one’s face in a number of ways, including: conversation, reminiscing, taking walks, scrapbooking, reading together, sharing a meal, crafts, playing music and dancing, playing games and putting together puzzles, providing a companion for social activities, engaging in memory stimulating activities and games.
