The typical role of the extended family in caring for their elderly loved ones is shifting as those caregiving children leave the neighborhoods where they were born or raised.
In many instances, communication with aging relatives has been relegated to occasional visits and video calls. Those who are fortunate enough to live with their loved ones are often left on their own when those caregivers head off to work or travel.
This isolation can be painful and can often cause the elderly to abandon the very activities that once filled them with joy and purpose, eroding their physical, mental and emotional health. This diminished quality of life can be devastating for our older loved ones and it’s the reason that Housing With Hope exists today.
