Battling Loneliness and Isolation in Older Adults

Resources for Families

Your mom lives alone.

She no longer drives, so she rarely leaves her home.

She’s lost contact with friends.

You visit as often as you can, but you worry she’s lonely and becoming more and more isolated.

What should you do?

“At the Trail Ridge Home Care, we understand that distance, work and family obligations might limit the amount of time friends and family members can spend with their aging loved ones,” said Austin Blilie, Chief Operating Officer at Trail Ridge Home Care’s parent organization, ABHM. “We work with a lot of families who’ve been in similar situations. They worry their aging loved ones are lonely, but they aren’t ready to move to a senior living community. For those families, home care is a great option.”

In addition to providing the companionship many seniors crave, Trail Ridge Home Care’s professional caregivers are thoroughly trained to help with a variety of non-medical, day-to-day tasks, including:

Light housekeeping – vacuuming, dusting, changing bed linens, laundry and clearing clutter.

Meal preparation – grocery shopping and helping plan/prepare healthy, nutritious meals.

Medication reminders – assisting with medication management to ensure the right doses are taken at the right time.

Transportation – driving clients to and from appointments, errands, shopping, recreational activities and more.

Personal care – assisting with bathing, grooming, dressing and toileting.

Dementia care – allowing clients to remain in a familiar environment, instead of moving to a senior living community.

“Whether it’s watching old movies, looking at photo albums, playing board games or going for walks, our professional caregivers love spending quality time with our clients,” Blilie said. “It’s great for the seniors’ overall well-being, and it gives their families much needed peace of mind.”
