Signs of Loneliness And What To Do

At our companion care agency, we know how important it is to support seniors in Stockbridge who are lonely and isolated. For older adults, loneliness is an ever-growing problem. As family members leave the area to pursue work or other opportunities, an older parent or grandparent's circle of social contacts may shrink. Loved ones and friends may pass away, contributing to isolation.

As a bystander, it's hard to tell if a loved one is feeling isolated or lonely. But if you're worried, let's take a look at how to spot social isolation from afar—and what you can do to help. 

Identify Signs of Loneliness And Support Your Loved One

Most seniors struggle to admit they're feeling lonely or isolated, but considering a few questions can clarify the situation: 

  • Have they lost someone recently? Having a spouse, friend, or family member pass away can really contribute to feelings of loneliness. It can also make your loved one retreat from the world, increasing those feelings.
  • How often do they leave home? Ask your family member how often they leave the home. Do they attend any social events in Stockbridge? Do they have friends or family there? 
  • Do they have caregiver support? Companion care services can offer tremendous benefits in alleviating social isolation. If your loved one doesn't have a regular caregiver in Stockbridge, they're more likely to be struggling with loneliness.

At Visiting Angels® Fayetteville, we know that a bit of social contact goes a long way. It's one of the many benefits we offer with our caregiver services. If you want to support your loved one, here are a few ways: 

  • Call every two weeks. A twenty-minute call every two weeks can be easy to fit into a busy schedule, while making your loved one feel supported. 
  • Connect them with activities. Find local events and activities for seniors, so your loved one can get out of the home occasionally. 
  • Encourage any hobbies. Favorite pastimes like gardening, reading, or sewing can bring enormous comfort, not to mention mental stimulation.
