Call in to speak with the host
Jim Crews, is the owner of First Light Home Care in Scottsdale, a provider of professional, non-medical in-home care for seniors and others who need assistance. Jim can discuss a topic that largely goes unnoticed in the senior community: loneliness. When we think of senior mortality and causes of death, our minds typically think about cancer, dementia and other prominent diseases. A lesser known evil is loneliness. Recent findings just published online by the Archives of Internal Medicine report people over 60 who felt lonely had a 45 percent higher risk of death than those who weren't lonely, the six-year-long study found. By the year 2020, one in four Arizonans will be over the age of 60. So what can family members and friends of the elderly do to help lower this risk? Consider speaking to Jim about ways people can be more involved with their elders and how in-home care companies can be an option for many families looking to help prevent loneliness in their elderly loved ones.
