Seniors can benefit from companionship for many reasons. Having someone to talk to, whether a friend or family member, can provide an invaluable outlet for social engagement. A friendly conversation can also encourage a greater sense of self-worth and purpose in life.
Having companionship and a friend to talk to can give seniors a sense of community they may not get from other sources. It can help them stay socially engaged, offering intellectual and creative stimulation opportunities. Regular conversations with someone can also help seniors stay connected and aware of changes in the world.
