Declines in Health Caused by Isolation and Loneliness

Seniors are at higher risk for social isolation and loneliness due to changes in health and social connections, such as memory loss and/or the loss of family and friends. Social isolation and loneliness for seniors have high risk factors and increase chance of falls.

Loneliness is a well-known health risk factor that increases the risk for heart disease, stroke, diabetes and even an early death. The more people feel lonely and isolated, the more likely they are to have multiple chronic medical conditions that can lead to death.

A recent study by the University of Chicago found that loneliness is equivalent to smoking 15 cigarettes a day. One hour a week of socializing can help to reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and dementia. Many have tried to help seniors with this through technology, but nothing compares to a human voice.

With Seniors Home Services Connect Home Monitoring system a team of four Remote Care Coordinators are there for the seniors to speak with them up to five times a week, depending on the senior’s preference. These calls turn into relationships where the seniors often share things they never share with their families or physicians, leading to a better quality of life and environment.

These calls are included with the Connect Home Monitoring System, a system that does not require wearable items. There a no cameras, no listening devices. The 24/7 live professional monitored system uses artificial intelligence (AI) and infrared technology to detect unusual behaviors such as falls, not getting out of bed, unusual bathroom patterns, and more. It can also detect breaking glass, stoves left on, and water on the floor.
