While your loved one's health and well-being are a top priority for you, the effects of loneliness and isolation can be difficult to realize. To combat these emotions, turn to Visiting Angels® Silver Spring. Our senior care services can provide the aid and companionship your loved one needs to continue aging in place safely and comfortably.

While isolation is often unintentional for seniors, it can have negative impacts on their overall health. Here are some effects your loved one may see if they feel lonely or isolated for an extended period of time.:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Memory loss
  • Diagnosis of chronic condition
  • Lack of self-care
  • Inability to perform household tasks

Talking honestly with your loved one about the above effects and/or noticing them for yourself will help you to recognize when they may need in-home assistance.

How Our Senior Care in Silver Spring Can Help

One of the best ways to combat loneliness is by ensuring your loved has companionship. Having a compatible caregiver visit them regularly can be beneficial for their mental health. Our team of caregivers is happy to supply quality interaction and friendship for each of our clients. If your loved one lives away from family or is unable to get out of the house for social gatherings, our companion care is a great solution for them.

Even though we provide companionship and aid with household tasks, your loved one will still be able to enjoy their independence at home. Our caregivers support their clients with cooperative care, meaning we step in to help as needed. Providing the right balance of aid and independence allows for a fulfilled life in the comfort of home.
