According to a national poll on healthy aging, about 33% of American seniors are lonely, the loneliness stemming from living and spending most of their time alone.
Loneliness is detrimental to a patient’s overall health. Therefore, you must ensure your loved one spends enough time with family and relatives.
Fortunately, you don’t have to fret if you’re a busy individual, as home health care provides the companionship needed. Caregivers offer good company, friendly conversations, and meaningful human connection to your loved one.
