Stopping Social Isolation

Nurses With Heart is excited to add another home health hint to our video blog – every week we will be posting a short video related to staying safe and healthy at home. This week we discuss the impact of social isolation on the elderly as well as the benefits of sharing a meal together.

Older adults who live alone are at increased risk of isolation. This can have an impact both on their mental and physical health. One of the easiest ways to help minimize the risk of isolation is by sharing a meal. In the video below, we discuss the dangers of isolation as well as how to remedy them with a simple meal.

Thanks for watching!
