Older men’s experiences of loneliness and social isolation in later life

This research from The University of Bristol highlights older men’s experiences of loneliness and social isolation in later life.

Loneliness can impact on people’s lives at any time, however, later life is consistently associated with loneliness (Age UK, 2018). While higher percentages of older women report loneliness as a problem compared to men, a greater number of older men (50+) report moderate to high levels of social isolation (Beach & Bamford, 2013).
