This full-color book looks at the problem of social isolation in elders who live in the community and offers advice on identifying and helping to alleviate its symptoms and causes in order to improve elders' health and well-being. The book is organized around ten risk factors of social isolation that were identified through focus goups and surveys conducted by Satellite Housing with a large pool of senior caregivers, service coordinators, and older adults living in idependent elder housing communities. Supported by anecdotal examples, statistics, and dignostic information where appropriate, this resource offers senior care providers concrete suggestions for addressing each risk factor.
