How to Help Combat Loneliness in a Senior Loved One with Senior Care Services

Unfortunately, loneliness is a common problem among seniors. According to a UCSF study, 18% of seniors live by themselves, and 43% claim to feel lonely on a regular basis. While none of us are strangers to occasional feelings of loneliness, isolation isn’t a choice for seniors with health concerns or mobility issues. Reluctantly, it can become their lifestyle. It can be difficult to stay active or keep in touch with friends for seniors who are homebound. In addition to health detriments, isolation and loneliness can also lead to severe psychological issues. As much as you’d like to always be there to keep our loved one company 24/7, that’s not always possible with a busy schedule and other obligations. With our attentive, experienced, and compassionate caregivers, Senior Helpers’ senior care services is the perfect resource for staving off your loved one’s loneliness.
