Addressing Loneliness and Social Isolation in Older People

There is a growing body of evidence about the role older people's housing plays in tackling loneliness and social isolation, but a lack of practical guidance for providers and those who work with older people on how to address it.

This new guide from EROSH consolidates some of this evidence, highlights the positive role sheltered and retirement housing plays in reducing loneliness and social isolation amongst all older people in a community, and includes good practice guidance for those who support older people who are, or are at risk of, loneliness and social isolation in any setting.

It seeks to demonstrate the role sheltered and retirement housing organisations play in preventing and addressing loneliness and social isolation.
