At Home Care for Isolated Seniors in Aurora, CO and the Surrounding Area

How Visiting Angels' At Home Care Can Increase a Senior's Socialization in Aurora, Denver, Centennial, and Neighboring Communities

Seniors who live alone might choose to do so in order to maintain independence, their current lifestyle, or to stay close to family, friends, or neighbors. Aging in place can sometimes mean increased social isolation, especially for seniors who experience chronic pain, reduced mobility, or other health conditions. If you provide at home care for a loved one who lives alone in Aurora, Centennial, Denver, or the surrounding area, it is important to keep an eye on their social health and ensure that they are not isolating themselves.

Signs of Social Isolation

  • They no longer attend church, community events they used to enjoy, or social opportunities
  • They remain at home for extended periods of time and are unable to safely or comfortably leave
  • Sudden change in sleeping or eating habits, such as sleeping too much during the day, or changes in appetite and weight
  • They are quieter, more anxious, more stressed, or more irritable
  • There is increased use of alcohol, tobacco, or drugs

How Modern Technology Can Help

Some seniors may no longer be able to access social opportunities they would have before (for instance, if a community festival becomes too challenging to walk around or if driving long distances is no longer possible). Which is why technology tools can be a great addition to your loved one’s life, and our at home caregivers have the knowledge and patience to help them acclimate to the platform or program they would like to use.

Our care providers can teach your loved one the ins and outs of their cell phone and even how to access social media. Sending texts, emails, and using Skype or FaceTime are all within your loved one’s ability now, to help them keep in touch with friends, family members, grand-kids, and loved ones. At Visiting Angels of Aurora, we believe that every senior deserves the best possible quality of life.

Benefits of Social Care

Receiving essential one-on-one at home care can benefit seniors who have a wide range of physical, mental, social, or emotional needs. Not only will our caregivers help with daily chores like laundry, linens changing, or light housekeeping, but they can also help with preparing fresh meals, transportation to medical appointments, or correct usage of mobility devices. And with a holistic viewpoint, your loved one can benefit from re-engaging with their community in a safe and comfortable way.
