Loneliness is a big problem for elderly people. As their friends or spouses die and their children and grandchildren become overwhelmed with busy schedules, older people can lose connections to others. Facilitators at assisted living communities can go a long way toward helping to solve this problem by planning social activities for their residents so that they can develop friendships and make new connections with other people.
A book club is a fantastic activity that assisted living communities can offer residents.
If you have a parent who hasn't quite reached the stage where they require an assisted living facility, but they still need some help around the house, it may be time to start thinking about personal care services. One of the benefits of personal care services is that the care provider will come right into your loved one's home and help them with their day-to-day needs. The care is specifically geared to what your loved one will need.
