Research increasingly shows that social isolation and loneliness can deeply impact the quality of life, especially for older adults. And some studies show that more than a fifth of adults in the United States identify themselves as lonely, isolated or both. This lesson will help participants to define the difference between social isolation and loneliness and identify the risk factors for both. The various consequences of isolation and loneliness will also be discussed, as well as, strategies for staying connected with others.This event will be held September 7 from 9 - 10 a.m. in the Champaign Extension Auditorium at 801 N Country Fair Drive, Champaign, IL 61821
