According to the National Institute of Health, “Previous research has identified a wide range of indicators of social isolation that pose health risks, including living alone, having a small social network, infrequent participation in social activities, and feelings of loneliness.” An estimated 32.7 million people currently live alone in the U.S., accounting for nearly 28% of the country’s total households.
“That said, isolation can have an especially negative impact on older adults,” says Carol Marak, Aging Advocate and Editor at Seniorcare.com. “This is because isolation among our age group can lead to ill health, a reduction in social activities and feelings of loneliness. None of these results are good for positive aging.”
