Social isolation is a health risk for seniors that often gets worse during the winter months. Frigid temperatures, difficult driving and walking conditions may limit opportunities for outings and socialization. These conditions can be especially difficult for the elderly and increase their risk of health problems, injuries, and loneliness.
DID YOU KNOW?
In Canada, nearly a million seniors are socially isolated and don’t participate frequently in any social activity.
On October 1st, International Day of Older Persons, take a few minutes to connect with a senior who may be lonely or isolated.
