Evidence reveals that there are numerous hazards and adverse effects from isolation, including elderly loneliness, – which include greater risks for mortality, dementia, cognitive decline and physical health issues. Looking after our aging family members involves assisting them in maintaining social contact and enjoying the company of others. Understanding the warning signs of loneliness in aging adults and being aware of what to do can help you give your parents or elderly family members the best possible care in their later years.
Identifying symptoms and causes of elderly solitude and isolation
Elderly people who live alone or in surroundings where they have minimal contact with close friends are at risk of isolation. If your parent lives alone, does not gets in touch with friends and loved ones, is not able to use technology (Skype, email, and so on) and doesn’t have loved ones residing in the immediate locality, they are vulnerable to feeling alone and isolated.
The most effective way to recognize signs of isolation is by using your ears and eyes. If a parent ceases his or her common routines, quits looking after personal hygiene or simply appears exhausted and gloomy, he or she may be experiencing the depression of being alone.
At times, listening to them is the key. Motivate your parents to speak to you in order to find out how they are doing. That way you will be able to learn if they are staying socially active. The elderly parent might voice frustration regarding missing particular individuals or particular much-loved activities. If this sounds like a recurring pattern, these might be indicators of distress due to isolation and solitude.
