Is connecting to the outside world becoming more challenging?
Life is full of challenges. Staying connected to those we love and enjoy is a difficult, regardless of what stage in life we are entering.
Sometimes it is the loss of a spouse…family and friends live at a distance… a medical condition has caused the client’s driver’s license to be taken away. Numerous events can lead to isolation and the feeling of being alone. Believe it or not, there are MANY people out there in the same situation. For most of us it is not easy to make new friends and put ourselves out there.
A care manager can help bridge the gap between isolation and the outside world. Not only do we help our client’s reconnect with old hobbies and activities, we can help establish new interests as well. With regular visits, encouragement, and even companionship in trying new activities to connect in the community, care managers are a great tool for helping our client’s get up and out of the house.
