Stress and Loneliness

By Homewatch CareGivers of Silver Spring

We, at Homewatch CareGivers of Silver Spring, take pride in providing holistic solutions to take care of you and your loved ones. Loneliness is a major problem in our society which our companion care services can help to alleviate, whether you need in-home care for yourself or you are feeling isolated as a caregiver to a loved one.

Stress and loneliness in our society are a silent epidemic. However, there are intervention strategies that are easy to adopt to break out of the cycle. A scientific research conducted by Lindsay and colleagues found that 2-week mindfulness training reduced daily loneliness by 22%. Mindfulness is a type of meditation where you are keenly aware of your senses in the moment without judgment or interpretation. In our community, you can find resources such as guided meditation. For example, Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring offers Virtual Guided Meditation.
