Social isolation and loneliness are major social, health and quality of life issues for older people. Over time, their mental and physical health deteriorate, sometimes to the point where they become “invisible”. But it doesn’t have to be that way… RISE is an initiative to help you identify the risks… and the possible actions to take. Feel free to download this poster and engage with your community in helping identify and support seniors at risk.
Social isolation can stem from the reduction of a senior's social participation or social contact, which may cause loneliness or other emotional distress.
Canadian population over 65 years: 5 million, 15.3% (2011)
