COVID-19 Elderly Care: The Ultimate Intervention For Isolated Seniors

COVID-19 Elderly Care: The Ultimate Intervention for Isolated Seniors

The pandemic has put a major strain on seniors’ social lives, but our COVID-19 elderly care services can help you reconnect with your friends, family, and community members.

Read on to learn how we help seniors socially distance without the risks of social isolation, or call (586)-690-7500 to speak directly with a COVID-19 elderly care specialist.

Clinton Township Seniors Face High Risk Of Social Isolation During COVID-19

According to research by the American Association of Retired Persons’ Connect2Affect campaign:

  • 17% of adults age 65 and older are socially isolated
  • 46% of women age 75 and older live alone
  • Subjective feeling of loneliness increases risk of early death by 26%

These statistics echo countless studies showing the detrimental effects that loneliness and social isolation can have on the mental and physical health of older adults.

What’s more, much of the research on the risks of social isolation was published pre-pandemic, before seniors were forced to socially distance en masse. In other words, it’s only gotten worse; as new research by the journal of Global Health and Research Policy suggests, shelter-in-place orders have had a “profound impact on older adults’ health and well-being,” greatly increasing their risks of social isolation and loneliness.

Of course, for seniors, the alternative—flouting precautions and exposing themselves to COVID-19 infections—was never an option, so sheltering-in-place became something of a necessary evil.

But with the help of our COVID-19 elderly care service, your loved ones will never have to sacrifice their social health for the sake of their physical well-being. We let you have your cake and eat it too, minimizing both the risks of infection and social isolation with a complete continuum of physical, mental, and social supports, all of which can be delivered right to the home while you shelter-in-place. In fact, COVID-19 elderly care services might be the ultimate intervention for those at risk of isolation.
