As they age, the elderly face many hardships and challenges in life. They retire, get separated from married children, lose a friend or a loved one, acquire a disease, or undergo Alzheimer’s Dementia Care.
They have different coping mechanisms and duration. Some may recover quickly, but many of them suffer longer, and with prolonged pain and sadness comes possible mental issues like anxiety, depression, and anger. It gets even worse when companionship is nowhere to be found.
Social isolation has something to do with their sadness too. They may even refuse help from family and respite care, increasing their risk of suicide and untimely death.
When an occasional doctor’s visit is the only way the elderly adults have contact with the outside world, assess them to identify whether they would need personal care in Scottsdale, Arizona, and connect the needy to possible resources that would help them.
Having meaningful talks can be helpful to seniors experiencing extreme feelings of sadness. It might not heal them, but it significantly impacts the healing process – emotionally, physically, and mentally. That said, we can deploy someone to accompany seniors at home. Heritage Home Care is a private agency that aims for the healing and wellness of our senior clients and prospects.
