Insight: Facing down loneliness for NZ’s ageing population

23 Jul 2018

Ageing Well researcher Dr Sally Keeling was featured on a recent Radio New Zealand program, Insight: Facing down loneliness for NZ’s ageing population (15 July 2018).

Dr Keeling discusses that one in four New Zealanders will be over the age of 65 in twenty years time, with many living in their homes. The health risk of loneliness and social isolation of older people has been likened to smoking cigarettes 15 a day.
