What Every Senior and Family in Victoria, BC Needs to Know About Loneliness and Depression

Senior Loneliness and Depression | The holidays may be full of celebrations, gathering relatives and friends from afar, but elderly adults who have physical and emotional challenges at this time of year may not think the festive season is all that bright.

Chronic disease, discomfort, and mobility challenges can make it difficult for older adults to participate in holiday festivities. Isolation and loneliness may result, with their sadness and depression creating an impact on their physical, as well as emotional well-being.

Recently, several studies have concluded that loneliness can affect the brain and even bring on the onset of dementia more quickly.

Researchers also point out the connection between feelings of loneliness and cardiac disease, also. Harvard researchers followed 44,000 people with cardiac disease for four years. They discovered that 8 % of the patients living alone had died, compared to only 5.7 % of those who were living with a spouse, friend or family member.

After researchers at the University of California in San Francisco kept watch on a group of older adults for six years, they reported that almost one-fourth of all the aging adults who had expressed feelings of isolation and loneliness had died by the end. 25 % more had significant health declines during this time.

We do have some good news to report: the aging adults who had said they were feeling content and satisfied with their lives did better. Only 12.5 % had a health decline, and 14.2 % had passed away.

At Comfort Keepers® Victoria we feel that home is the best place to be.

If you are concerned about the health and well-being of your aging loved ones we can help with 24-hour care, senior care, companionship care, end-of-life care, post-surgery care, palliative care, personal care, senior living transition services, and much more!
