You don’t have to go very far to see the face of loneliness. It is everywhere.

  • Up to 50% of those 60+ are at risk of social isolation, and that was before the impact of COVID-19
  • Social distancing increases isolation and loneliness
  • Social isolation is associated with an increased risk for early death, cognitive decline, and various mental health conditions
