Before the outbreak of coronavirus, we were already facing a loneliness epidemic amongst older people. But as a result of the pandemic, this crisis has intensified.
Most of us will feel lonely at some point in our lifetime. For some, loneliness can define our lives and have a significant impact on our wellbeing.
We can help you feel less alone.
