Over forty percent of seniors who live at home are isolated socially. Aging, illness, and disability can often stand in the way of one’s social life, which can be a severe detriment to quality of life – social isolation has been proven to contribute to poor health and shorter life expectancy. Your personal limitations may make you feel self-conscious, or fearful of being in social situations alone. You may find yourself withdrawing from friends and activities which you previously enjoyed and were active in.
Many times, relatives and other persons involved in caregiving notice a lack of socializing by the ones they love, which leads them to investigate options for social care services. Independent Life Home Care is available to listen to the concerns you have regarding your loved one, and assess social areas where your loved one may be in need of assistance.
