Did you know that social isolation affects 1 in 5 seniors and another 30% are at risk? Social isolation can contribute to anxiety and depression, poor physical health, higher rates of disease and dementia, and even suicide. We recently discovered that Canadians over 65 have a higher suicide rate than any other age group - and men are at greatest risk.
This is a crisis that cannot continue. With your support, we can start to take action and explore solutions and in doing so, let Canadian seniors know that they are not alone.
