Companionship is a basic human need and establishes a sense of belonging. Having a companion in life, whether they are a relative, friend or caregiver, helps keep the mind active and prevent social isolation. Having someone there to engage in conversation with encourages mental stimulation and positive thoughts, as well as reminisce memories.
