The Vortex of Loneliness in the Elderly, Leading Cause of Stroke and Heart Disease

September 1, 2018

Social isolation is one of the leading causes of stroke and heart disease among the aging population. As we get older, we lose more and more contact with loved ones when we mourn the loss of a spouse, parent, or unfortunate death of a child. Retirement and loss of mobility due to arthritis or other health conditions are also factors of social alienation. According to a journal Heart, perceived social isolation, or loneliness, is responsible for 30% increased risk of stroke and coronary artery disease. Researchers link loneliness to a compromised immune system. A-1 Home Care in Whittier makes a long-last contribution to the aging community with high quality 24-hour companion care.

Reduce Perceived Loneliness, Prevent Alzheimer’s & Dementia

The presence of a warm, friendly 24-hour caregiver makes a big difference in the daily lives of seniors. Not only does it help to have delightful company around the house, but 24-hour care in Whittier deters the onset of Alzheimer’s and dementia because it brings face-to-face social contact to seniors day in and day out. If your elderly loved ones live alone, live-in and live-out caregivers will help them use smart technology to connect to their loved ones in nearby cities, other states or even countries. A-1 Home Care’s certified home health aides are the bridge between isolated seniors and the outside world. If your elderly loved ones can no longer drive, our caregivers provide transportation so that your parents can engage in activities with other seniors in the community.
