The consequences of senior loneliness and isolation can be alarming and even harmful.
By investing in our older adults, we ensure that they will thrive in our community.
Nearly 1 in 5 adults over the age of 50 is at risk of social isolation, which may lead to loneliness. Loneliness can impact your immune system, increase inflammation, lead to diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis and other serious health conditions—the impact on your health can be as significant as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. It can also contribute to cognitive decline and the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
