Isolation and loneliness are the enemy of Seniors and those homebound due to disabilities. So, be consistant when visiting them.
Always set a specific date and time when planning your visit. Setting an appointment, which you are certain you can keep is essential.
Frequency of visits is also very important. Whether you are able to visit weekly, monthly or another time frame, try to maintain a pattern.
Realize that your homebound friend will be looking forward to your visit.
