XXXIII Annual International Congress of Gerontology and Geriatrics: Loneliness and social isolation. New challenges and resources

  Date:
 Type: Congress
 Line of Knowledge: 
 Location: Museo Verbum - Vigo

Although it is difficult to measure social isolation and loneliness accurately, there is strong evidence that many adults aged 50 and older are socially isolated or lonely in ways that put their health at risk. Older people are at greater risk of loneliness and social isolation because they are more likely to face factors such as living alone, losing family or friends, chronic illness and hearing loss.

This congress of the Sociedade Galega de Xerontoloxía e Xeriatría will reflect on this complex phenomenon with very diverse expressions.
