Seniors and Isolation
We have developed a resource for addressing isolation. It describes what isolation is, who is at risk, why it is important to address this issue, what are some simple solutions communities or individuals can take on and how they can implement these ideas to alleviate isolation in their community, even if it is one person at a time. This free resource is available to communities.
