Recognizing Loneliness and Isolation in Seniors

Isolation and loneliness are two different health issues, but they often go hand in hand. While loneliness is a temporary lack of contact with people, social isolation is a complete or nearly complete lack of contact with people for an extended period. Both are known to have physical, mental and emotional consequences, making these conditions too critical to ignore.  

If you are worried that your aging parent or loved one may be at risk of loneliness or isolation, there are some signs you can be on the lookout for, including:

  • Losing the ability to drive

  • Spending lots of time alone

  • Change of living arrangements

  • Spending more money than usual

  • Poor sleeping habits

  • Increase or decrease in appetite

  • Mobility, vision, or hearing issues
