Report: Social Isolation and Loneliness in Older Adults — Opportunities for the Health Care System

National Academy of Sciences report

Even the most socially isolated individuals — those who have no or very few community connections — interact with the health care system. With support from the AARP Foundation, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine has published a report that details the meaningful role the health sector can play to help people overcome isolation along with recommendations to enhance that role. Practitioners and researchers can promote the report using content from this social media toolkit.

Funding for this initiative was made possible by contract no. HHSP233201500088I from ACL.  The views expressed do not necessarily reflect the official policies of the Department of Health and Human Services; nor does mention of trade names, commercial practices, or organizations imply endorsement by the U.S. Government.
