If you live in a house without any companions, not even one, how do you imagine you would feel? Do you still think that you can call your house a home? There may be numerous things that can give you comfort like your comfortable couch, a TV with cable, or those shiny trophies of your past achievements in your shelves. However, nothing still beats the company of a person.
Companionship plays a big role in both your physical and mental wellness. Having a genuine company around can make you feel calm, comfortable, and keep your mind positively stimulated. It can give you the motivation to perform your daily activities.
Seniors tend to get lonely at home because their family members are either at work or already living in their separate homes. If they do not feel well, they do not have anybody but themselves to take care of them. If they need someone to talk to, there are times that their phone calls will not be answered, or even returned. Eventually, they will stop calling, having given up on looking for a companion.
It can be dangerous when your senior loved one start to fall into depression due to loneliness because it can affect their mental and physical health. If their depression becomes chronic, then they may not live long.
