Holiday Loneliness and Seniors
The holidays can be difficult for anyone, but they can be especially tough for older adults. Loneliness and isolation are common problems for seniors during the holiday season. Nearly one-fourth of seniors are considered to be socially isolated.
The holiday buzz of family gatherings and friends coming together isn’t as easily accessible for seniors. It can leave people feeling forgotten or left out. Holiday loneliness can lead to feelings of depression and anxiety. Feeling lonely can also increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

Our community makes senior living feel like home for older adults in all stages of retirement. We offer:

Seniors with memory loss are especially at risk for depression and loneliness. The holidays are a challenging time for people to balance seeing family and friends while also caring for a loved one.
Compassionate Alzheimer’s Care In Dallas County
With the aging population growing, Alzheimer’s is becoming an increasing concern. At least 13 percent of Texas seniors have the most common form of dementia. Family members are often the first to step in and provide care.
Being a caregiver to a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia is a noble task. However, it can be challenging and isolating, especially during the holidays.
Cambridge Court welcomes families in the Dallas area to find relief in The Cottage.
The Cottage offers memory care services by a team of trained professionals. Our dementia care team lets residents live in the moment with the guidance of evidence-based therapies. We encourage residents to spend time with each other every day.
From Fit For You classes to gardening and art, Cottage residents stay busy and social to reduce their feelings of isolation.
