Spending quality time with family is a luxury that not everyone has for many different reasons. In close families, people can start to feel isolated if they are separated from their loved ones for an extended period of time.
This is especially true for grandparents and any elderly family members who live alone.
The past few years were especially hard on senior citizens
Over the past few years, social restrictions were especially hard on senior and elderly populations who were encouraged to isolate and avoid contact with everyone— including their close family and friends.
Grandparents everywhere were dealing with unusual isolation that left them feeling lonely, depressed, and helpless. Loneliness is a crippling experience that can quickly have negative effects on the entire body.
