Combating older people's loneliness and social isolation

Family, friendship, and community in housing, care and support

Date: Tuesday 8th November 2011

 

A Bloom conference presented by Lemos&Crane

 

Loneliness and social isolation are among the greatest sources of misery for older people living in the UK today – one in 10 older people say they suffer from "intense" loneliness and more than half of people over the age of 75 live alone, according to research by Age UK.

 

This Bloom conference sets out fresh objectives and provides practical guidance and inspiring examples from a range of settings for providers and commissioners of care and support services for older people – to enhance family relationships, encourage love and friendship, and promote community involvement and engagement.
