How Comfort Keepers Can Help Prevent Senior Isolation
Senior isolation and loneliness are serious issues that are becoming more and more common among older adults. Seniors can withdraw in themselves and feel lonely for a number of reasons. They may feel like they no longer have a place in their community or they may just avoid socialization due to health issues, such as chronic or progressive conditions, mobility troubles, mental problems, and more. Some seniors are scared to leave their home for fear of falling. Others may worry about medication management and side-effects. As a result of one or more of these factors, many seniors spend their days alone without any meaningful social contact.
What’s also alarming is that social isolation is connected to the development of many serious health problems. For instance, senior loneliness can increase the risk of dementia and heart disease. It can also lead to a gradual health decline, shortening a person’s lifespan. Fortunately, there are a couple of ways to prevent or reduce isolation in seniors, such as spending more time with your loved one, encouraging them to join a class or take up a hobby, and introducing them to modern technology.
