Reducing isolation and loneliness

Addressing social isolation is important at every age, especially for older adults. It is associated with increased mortality, depression, dementia and risk of hospital re-admission and falls.

Older people who have close connections and relationships not only live longer, but also cope better with health conditions and experience less depression. It also increases cognitive function and boosts confidence levels.
