The Importance of Social Interactions for Seniors 

April 17, 2014

Social Interactions for Seniors

Among many obvious contributors to poor health in the elderly – such as lifestyle, past injuries, or limited access to medical care – there is one factor which may not be immediately obvious but has a significant impact on overall health: isolation. With old age comes an increased risk of isolation as the older adult becomes less mobile and his or her peers and older relatives pass away. It is clear how this likely has an emotional impact on the elder, but what might be less obvious is that this emotional effect influences the elder’s physical health. By addressing isolation and helping an older adult find more pathways to social interaction, the elder’s overall health can be improved and their cost of care may be reduced.
