Loneliness in #Seniors Is Hazardous to Their Health, By Martine Ehrenclou, M.A. @Med_Writer #nurseup:

Loneliness in Seniors Is Hazardous to Their Health, By Martine Ehrenclou, M.A. @Med_Writer #nurseup:"In reading the San Francisco Chronicle article, "Loneliness Lethal for Seniors, UCSF Study Says," by Erin Allday, I thought about the number of seniors I know who have become isolated, one of them being a member of my immediate family. His medical conditions now prevent him from leaving the house without being accompanied by a caregiver. His career as a successful attorney has long since past.
I discovered Bill (not his real name) just before my mother's funeral twelve years ago. My mother was adopted and I never knew she had sought out her biological parents and in the process had found a close relative. Having very little of my own family of origin, I originally sought him out through phone calls and letters. He was reticent at first, probably a little overwhelmed by my enthusiasm over finding a biological relative."
