Have you ever noticed that emotional bonding usually skips a generation? Grandparents are usually closer to their grandchildren than to their own kids. Most people have endearing memories of their favorite grandmother, and seniors love showing off pictures of their grandkids to their friends. Social gatherings are a vitally important aspect of seniors’ health. A vibrant social life benefits the elderly in more ways than one:
- Longer, better life
- Lower blood pressure
- Lower risk for Alzheimer’s
- Lower risk for cardiovascular problems, arthritis and osteoporosis
Did you know that friends and family can actually minimize your physical health problems? Statistics show that socially isolated seniors suffer more from loneliness, depression, poor physical health, and poor nutrition. If a senior citizen lives alone and is not regularly exposed to social interaction, he will not get the help he needs for doctor visits, grocery store errands, or pharmacy pick-ups.
Social isolation becomes a serious problem if the elderly lives in a different state than their children and grandchildren. That’s where A-1 Home Care comes in. Our skilled, compassionate, and pre-screened caregivers will take care of your elderly loved one as if they were their own. They can help your parents learn how to use social media to connect with their grandchildren, and they will provide transportation to nearby senior centers, medical appointments, and other excursions so that your elderly loved one will have some human contact with the outside world.
