Improving the lives of older people is a community group with the aim of reducing loneliness and isolation. ILOP has created three community projects aimed at addressing this need: Tech and Talk, Alonely Monologues and a Community Retirement Programme.
One of those themes was the isolation caused by the fear of computer technology and the era of the “Internet of Things”; on-line shopping, email etc.
Also, in today’s community, there is a lack of awareness of the effects of isolation in older people. These become critical nearer the point of retirement.
