Social Isolation in Older Adults

Researchers at the University of Toronto’s Institute for Life Course and Aging are conducting a study on the best policies and practices, nationally and internationally, with respect to social isolation. The researchers are looking for 200 participants (people over the age of 65) to complete an online survey (~20 minutes) about their
experiences and perspectives on social isolation. A $10 gift card will be provided for eligible participants.
