Pan-Edmonton Group Addressing Social Isolation of Seniors
Social isolation and loneliness are important social, health, and quality of life issues.
Seniors are especially at risk of being socially isolated or lonely because of a combination of factors such as life transitions, health challenges, and smaller social networks.
Social isolation is a complex issue and addressing it requires community involvement from multiple angles. By addressing a range of factors that may lead to social isolation, PEGASIS is encouraging and promoting healthy connections and building networks among seniors, caregivers, and communities.
By working together we will have a collective impact on reducing the social isolation of seniors.
