Helping Elderly Family Members Socialize

Compassionate Caregiver Support in Jacksonville

If you have an aging family member, you know just how challenging it can be to make time for anything beyond the basics of eating, bathing, doctors appointments, and so on, much less even more time for creating quality experiences with your senior. However, deliberately carving out time for positive interactions and new happy moments are a gift you give to your aging family member. In fact, going beyond the basics of caregiving to spend time connecting with your senior can result in a notable increase in their quality of life and prevent exacerbation of mental health problems. Since many seniors struggle with depression as a result of confinement to the home and social isolation from friends and loved ones, it is critical that social interaction and quality time factor into your caregiving approach.

How Can I Encourage my Senior to Be More Social?

The first step to helping your senior attain a healthy level of social interaction is to spend time with them yourself. It may require some effort to have a substantial or stimulating conversation with your senior, especially if they are suffering from Alzheimer’s or any form of dementia. However, the mental processes involved in listening, synthesizing information, producing speech, and talking about abstract concepts (i.e. going beyond discussing medication, bathing, eating, etc.) can help your senior retain important neural connections and help maintain relationships.

Many family caregivers are largely alone in their efforts to preserve the life and well-being of their loved one. However, it can bring a great sense of community, belonging, and overall happiness to your aging family member to have visits from other family members, arranged time with friends, and at least the occasional opportunity to be a part of a community event. This can include watching a sporting event, going to an outdoor movie, attending a church or religious service, or spending time with an old friend, co-worker, or family member.
