Senior Isolation & Loneliness: How Can You Help?

Lonely Without Being Alone

In this current Covid-19 pandemic, seniors who live in assisted living facilities may suffer from increased loneliness and isolation. Although there are many residents in these communities, loneliness among the elder population prevails. Isolation can have a significant impact on seniors and is linked to serious health problems. It is an unpleasant, debilitating feeling of emptiness. While our loved ones moved to assisted living facilities for their safety, socialization and well-being, many adults have become isolated due to the quarantine restrictions in place.   It is especially painful when loved ones cannot visit due to Covid-19 fears.

Lack Of Companionship

As we face the restrictions of COVID-19, the evolving rules for visits from family and friends is difficult to navigate.  With regulations being updated all the time, it can feel impossible to connect with your loved ones. That is where Home Care Connectors can help. Our fully vested, highly trained private duty aides can step in to help ease the loneliness for your loved one.
