The government is currently looking at funding more Home Care Packages for people to continue ageing at home. A lot of elderly people are living at home alone with Home Care Packages, visiting twice weekly to every day twice a day. Depends on the needs of the clients. A lot of isolation comes with the loss of driving licenses. Family members are too busy with own lives the elderly person does not want to be a burden to anyone.
Do you have any ideas for activities that these people who live alone and are socially isolated may be able to do themselves or with a caregiver who may be visiting for a short time.
I would like others comments
Thank you
