Both social isolation and loneliness are associated with poor physical health, mental health, cognitive decline and increased risk of dementia, loss of independence, and, even, early death. According to one study, the adverse effects of social isolation on life expectancy are comparable to smoking 15 cigarettes per day.
Considering everything from the physiologic impacts—effects on immune function and levels of inflammation, sleep quality, stress levels—to simply how someone is feeling about their own health and state of mind, we know that loneliness and isolation are taking a toll. While this is a public health crisis affecting people of all ages and backgrounds, we also know that certain groups are at higher risk and that the impacts on the health and well-being of older adults are particularly widespread and devastating.
Social isolation is perhaps the most significant secondary adverse consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic.
There is an immediate demand for effective engagement strategies and urgent need for a safe and scalable infrastructure to reduce loneliness, as seen in this global pandemic. The convergence of these two epidemics (Covid- 19 and Social Isolation) are magnifying the scope, intensity and scale of the problems on a global scale.
