Relations of social care home residents as a precondition for coping with loneliness
Mykolas Romeris University, Lithuania
The article analyses relations of social care home residents with relatives, former neighbours and members of local community. The focus is laid on residents’ feeling of loneliness as one of the outcomes of unsuccessful adaptation. The emphasis is also laid on the fact that this feeling may occur when an individual is strongly related neither with other residents of social care homes nor with relatives. The analysis of correlations revealed that statistically relevant correlations exist between visits of relatives and possession of children and relatives. The residents of Utena Social Care Home with children pointed out that they are visited statistically significantly. The article discusses communication among residents of social care home and their participation in the community activity.
