Connecting with people is vital for everyone, but it is essential for seniors.
If you have watched grandparents and great-grandparents struggle with isolation and loneliness over the years, you know how powerful this issue can be. Being disconnected from the world can be devastating for seniors who live alone or have limited mobility.
Approximately 25% of community-dwelling Americans aged 65 and older are socially isolated. Many adults in the United States report feeling lonely.
What leads to senior loneliness and isolation?
Isolation and loneliness are among the most common issues facing seniors today. As we age, many of us lose our independence, mobility and ability to live alone. Many seniors living alone have lost spouses or partners, so they have no one to spend time with.
Others may have grown children who now live far away and don't visit often enough to compensate for the loss of companionship they once enjoyed from family members nearby. And many seniors simply don't want to burden their families by relying on them too much for help with daily activities like cooking and cleaning or taking care of transportation needs.
Village Green: Reducing Senior Loneliness and Isolation and Providing Care and Support
Village Green is an assisted living and memory care center that serves seniors who are isolated, lonely and/or in need of care and support.
We believe in the Eden philosophy of care. It focuses on eliminating loneliness from our seniors living in assisted living communities. Our communities are designed to be inclusive and welcoming so that our elders feel like they have a place where they belong. When our elders live at Village Green Assisted Living, we make sure that thye are never alone. Our dedicated staff members are always available to help with their daily routines and activities while still giving them time to do what makes THEM happy!
We believe that the best way to keep our residents happy and healthy is to ensure they have a sense of community with other residents and the outside world. That is why we are constantly looking for ways to connect our elders with the outside world—to allow them to feel like they are part of something bigger than themselves.
- We maintain a strong presence at Village Green, so all our residents feel supported and cared for. Our staff members are trained in a variety of areas, including emergency response, housekeeping services, and personal care services. This means that our staff members are able to provide assistance where needed, day or night—whether it's helping one resident find their suite after an activity or providing another resident with a few extra minutes of support during their morning shower routine.
- We believe there is no better way to feel connected than by getting out and doing something with the people around you. So we have always made plenty of activities at Village Green, so our residents can meet new friends and stay active.
