Growing old is not easy for anyone. Physically, the elderly cannot do as much for themselves as they once could, they are often isolated and, in many cases, develop mental illnesses because of it. If you’ve ever had the chance to meet an isolated senior citizen, you may notice many differences between them and active, social seniors. Being in good company and avoiding boredom can be all the difference to the health and well-being of older people.
This video is a sobering reminder of what life is like when a person is isolated from family and friends, bored and unable to do many of the things they once did to pass the time alone. What this woman did with her time alone is scary to imagine. Thankfully, there are good people out there and the benefits of what they do cannot be measured.
