There are a number of views that people have about Valentine’s Day. Some believe it is a day to spoil their significant other, some pretend it does not exist and some are reminded of lost loves and the fact that they may not have anyone to share the day with. To that end, Just Better Care is urging people to think of Valentine’s Day as a day not only to appreciate your loved ones but also a day to reach out to others who may not have anyone on this day, with the aim of reducing social isolation.
Social isolation is a major issue for older people living on the Mornington Peninsula. Many people don’t know that social isolation and loneliness can have a number of detrimental effects on an individual’s health, including depression and decreased mobility. Just Better Care Mornington has services that are able to support people in their own homes to access the community and get back to doing the things that they enjoy.
This Valentine’s Day, why not do something a little different and purchase a Just Better Care Gift Voucher and give the gift of time to a friend or family member. Call today for more information on 5972 1860.
