Summer is often associated with fun activities and social gatherings. However, for many elderly persons, summer can be a lonely and isolating time, especially for those who cannot get out of the house due to mobility issues or health concerns. Loneliness can have detrimental effects on one’s mental and physical health, leading to depression, anxiety, and even cognitive decline. We’re happy to help your loved one get the most of their summertime fun by creating memories for them.

Socialization opportunities: We find socialization opportunities tailored to their needs and interests. This can include senior centers, social clubs, or volunteer opportunities in the community. We can arrange transportation and support to ensure that they can attend these events and connect with others.

Support with technology: Many seniors struggle with using technology, which can lead to further isolation. With some basic technology training and using new options in technology tools, we can help connect seniors with virtual socialization opportunities, such as Zoom calls or online game groups, even support groups if needed. These connections can help combat loneliness and stay engaged with the world around them.

Coordination of healthcare: Loneliness can exacerbate physical and mental health conditions. With coordinated healthcare services, you can rest assured that that they receive necessary medical attention and medication management. By taking care of their physical health needs, caregivers can help alleviate some sources of stress and loneliness in the elderly person’s life.

Family support and communication: We specialize in facilitating family support and communication. Each step of the way we act as a liaison between the elderly person and their service providers then communicate to all involved family members, helping to organize visits, calls, and other forms of communication. We also provide education and support for family caregivers, helping them navigate difficult conversations and manage the stress of caring for an elderly loved one.

Quality of life support: The clear focus we provide is overall better quality of life for the elderly person. This can include assistance with daily living tasks, travel planning, and engaging in hobbies and activities that they enjoy. By focusing on increasing overall well-being, our care managers help your aging parents feel more connected to the world around them and prevent feelings of loneliness from setting in.

While summer can be a challenging time for elderly persons who are unable to get out of the house, there are ways that we can work to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation. We happily provide emotional support, healthcare coordination, and socialization opportunities tailored to their needs. By partnering together, families and care managers can help ensure that aging loved ones get the care and support that they need to lead fulfilling and connected lives.
