HOW CARER CONVERSATIONS ARE COMBATING LONELINESS

Updated: Nov 21, 2023



Loneliness might be a temporary feeling, or it can linger, staying with you for a long time.

If feeling lonely becomes a constant state of being, it affects health and well-being.

Knowing how to feel less lonely can help you, or a loved one to feel less isolated and happier.


There are things you can do to help combat loneliness.


TALK WITH PEOPLE:

When you are already feeling lonely and perhaps a bit low, it can be difficult to talk to people. However once you start having a chat with someone, you begin to feel less alone.




CONNECT WITH NATURE:

Nature has a grest way of helping us feel more connected with the earth and each other.

Spending as little as ten minutes a day with nature can significantly improve feeling of well-being.





  • Go for a walk in a local park

  • Spend a few hours gardening

  • Get a pet like a cat or dog






LET PEOPLE IN:


Often, lonely people feel anxious about making new friends or meeting new people. We can all have negative feelings sometimes, but often, this is over-amplified by thinking too much with all that time alone. Be brave, get out there and you will soon wonder what you were worrying about.




SHARE YOUR OWN EXPERIENCES:




Share your own stories and experiences to help build a connection with the service user. This can help them feel more comfortable and engaged in the conversation.
