Social isolation poses serious health risks, especially for older people. It significantly increases a person’s risk of premature death and is associated with a 50% increased risk of dementia. Poor social relationships are also associated with an increased risk of heart disease and stroke as well as higher rates of depression, anxiety and suicide.
Sometimes it’s hard to pull yourself out of the loneliness you are feeling, especially right now in a world forcing us to distance from each other. But just because we are physically distant doesn’t mean we can’t still find and feel community with others. That’s where CarDon comes in to help residents and their loved ones find meaningful connections.
Stay Socially Engaged
Being part of a CarDon community like Harbour Manor & The Lodge Family-First Senior Living Community helps seniors stay socially active.
This community is a collaborative environment. It’s like a big family really. Every day residents have the chance to interact with nurses, dietary associates, the life enrichment team, physical or occupational therapists and other residents.
From providing creative activities to coordinating family visits — yes, the community is beginning to open back up for visitation — the Copper Trace staff makes sure residents never feel neglected or alone.
Find Caregivers, Neighbors, New Family Members
At Harbour Manor & The Lodge, residents receive a greeting every day from staff members, who offer a warm smile, a comforting word and a health and wellness check, both physically and mentally.
The dietary staff provides delicious — and nutritious — meals three times a day. And depending on the ever-changing regulations surrounding COVID-19, residents may be able to socially distance while eating and chatting with other residents in the dining room. But even if the dining room isn’t open, the dietary staff serves up a healthy meal made with pure love.
Either way — you’ll get a hearty helping of human interaction with every meal.
Community is shown when team members engage with, provide emotional support to and know each resident by name. Harbour Manor is a family to go to. To talk. To listen. To smile. To care.
Human beings were created to be in community with one another. At Harbour Manor and The Lodge, your loved one will be surrounded by neighbors as caring as family. You can rest easy knowing that residents and staff members are providing company and good cheer throughout the day.
