Alone or Lonely: A Resource for Addressing Isolation of Older Adults in Rural Communities

Saskatchewan Seniors Mechanism, a RISC partner, has produced a resource for people who live in rural Saskatchewan in order to assist them in overcoming social isolation of older adults in their community. It describes what isolation is, who is at risk, why it is important to address this issue, what are some simple solutions communities or individuals can take on and how they can implement these ideas to alleviate isolation in their community, even if it is one person at a time. This free resource is available to communities.
