Imagine that you’re 1 of over 1,000,000 UK elderly people who experience loneliness each year. In fact, 1 out of 3 older people are affected by loneliness. Research shows that loneliness and social isolation are harmful to our health: lacking social connections is a comparable risk factor for early death as smoking 15 cigarettes a day.
