Elderly Companion Care
Does your aging loved one feel lonely? Chances are high that if your loved one stays at home due to limited mobility or transportation issues, they are feeling a bit isolated. Senior isolation is a real threat to their emotional, cognitive and physical health that only increases with age. Consider the situation - as lifelong friends pass away and neighbors move, seniors may find their social network disappearing quickly. Add in any complex medical conditions and feelings of isolation, if the senior lives alone or with a partner, can increase.
The Danger of Isolation
The subject of senior isolation has been well researched over the past decade, to somewhat surprising results. The lack of a peer network of support and encouragement has been shown to lead to increased feelings of depression, while less social interaction has been shown to lead to increased progression of dementia. To be sure, unmanaged senior isolation can lead to poor physical and mental health for aging adults.
Isolation can negative impact seniors who live at home alone, who live with a partner, or even seniors who live in a senior living community but do not participate in the life of that senior home. Fortunately, there is an easy way to stop those feelings of loneliness and isolation – a friendly face, and the consistency of regular visits, from one of our Visiting Angels.
