Poll shows many older adults, especially those with health issues, feel isolated: Physical and mental health issues, hearing problems, and poor diet, exercise and sleep all linked to feeling isolated

One in four older adults say they feel isolated from other people at least some of the time, and one in three say they lack regular companionship, according to a new national poll. Those feelings of loneliness showed up most in people aged 50 to 80 who also reported they had health issues and unhealthy habits. The findings amplify research showing links between chronic loneliness and health issues ranging from memory loss to shorter lives.
