Isolation | January 5, 2021
If your family starts to notice that your senior Mom or Dad is isolating themselves and not doing the activities they once loved, we are here to help. In a study published by the National Academy of Sciences, researchers in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at University College London found that seniors who report feeling lonely and isolated are more likely to report having poor physical and/or mental health.
