As our parents grow older, we may not always be aware of the challenges they face. We’ve always looked to them for emotional support, they have always provided the strength when we needed it. Then a time comes when we need to provide the same love and support for our elderly relatives, be it a parent or grandparent.
Being there for our loved ones is often easier said than done. With work, family, and all the hustle and bustle of modern life, An easily overlooked aspect of leading a fulfilling life can be that of socialization. Elderly people tend to become isolated over the years. They don’t get out and about as much as they used to. The effects of loneliness on seniors living alone are compound and can lead to depression, even causing a deterioration in their health.
