Physical isolation has become commonplace. To protect the physical health of our senior loved ones, many of us have foregone our regular visits, dinner dates, and social activities with Grandma or Grandpa. In this case, it is essential to ensure that our loved ones are not lonely. While being physically isolated from friends and family, seniors need to maintain a sense of connection throughout the process. They need to know that they have someone to reach out to avoid a sense of helplessness. Well established research, and my own experience in the field, has shown that loneliness is associated with a string of physical and mental health issues commonly faced by loved ones. Depression, anxiety, heart disease, high blood pressure, and cognitive decline are just a few conditions often affecting seniors that can be triggered by the distressing feeling of loneliness.
