Simply Helping provides social support in Perth and surrounding areas. Why is social support important?
From the moment we are born, we interact with others. Humans are naturally social. Babies communicate with caregivers using gaze, touch, and vocal sounds. As we grow up, social connections help us form relationships. This starts with family and friends and continues through school, and into the workplace. Socialising can appear to be a normal part of everyday life. However, staying social is not always that straight forward. Situations change and people move away from loved ones. Some people feel anxious in social settings, and try to avoid them. Others feel isolated due to age or disability. No matter the circumstance, it’s beneficial for our wellbeing to stay social. And, Simply Helping is here to help.
Benefits of Staying Social
The benefits of social support in Perth are plentiful. Maintaining social connections promotes good mental health. Pleasant interactions boost feelings of self-worth. They make us feel happy, and can prevent feelings of loneliness and depression. With increased happiness, stress levels tend to decrease. This is great news for our immune system which can otherwise be thwarted by stress. Then there’s the physical benefits too. Without realising it, an active social life gets us out and about. It’s an enjoyable way to increase mobility and fitness. At Simply Helping, we want everyone to enjoy the benefits of staying social. Therefore, our home care and social support services are tailored to enhance your lifestyle. To maximise your wellbeing, we invest time to learn more about you. Understanding your likes, dislikes, culture, and background helps us to match you with a suitable carer. Spending time with someone who appreciates your interests helps to build a trusting bond. Regular social support can build confidence, and lead to other social activities.
