Senior Care in Egg Harbor Township: Combating Loneliness and Isolation

You may be surprised to find that seniors are subject to feelings of loneliness and isolation frequently. A number of factors can contribute to this, including the loss of a spouse and living alone. At Visiting Angels® Egg Harbor Township, we provide our senior care services, which can help seniors combat these feelings and continue aging in place.

While feeling lonely and isolated seems troublesome enough, the mental and physical effects can be hard on seniors as well. The following impacts may be seen with prolonged loneliness or isolation:

  • Lack of self-care
  • Depression
  • Memory loss
  • Anxiety
  • Inability to live independently
  • Diagnosis of chronic condition

How Our Senior Care in Egg Harbor Township Can Help

One way we can help your loved one keep these emotions at bay is by supplying quality companionship for them. Our caregivers regularly visit your loved one's home, providing interaction and friendship. Your loved one will be paired with a compatible caregiver whom they can look to for physical, emotional, and mental support.

Our Social Care Program is also very beneficial for seniors who live alone. With our ever-increasing dependence on technology, it is important your loved one knows how to use it safely. Our caregivers are happy to teach their clients to use cell phones, laptops, and even social media to stay connected with friends and family.

Another culprit for feeling isolated is the inability to drive and leave the house. We can provide transportation to your loved one's appointments and errands if needed. Getting out of the house is great for mental health, and we are happy to accompany your loved one as they do so.

All our senior care services are designed to help your loved one live happily at home as they age. Here are the programs and services we offer at Visiting Angels Egg Harbor Township:

  • Personal care
  • Palliative care
  • Ready-Set-Go-Home (transitional care)
  • Alzheimer's and dementia care
