Loneliness forms part of the complex human condition and older people are especially prone to feeling lonely. No one escapes it, even if it is experienced rarely. Now research says that loneliness not only makes a person feel bad, but it can really harm us.
Elder abuse is never OK. June is recognised world-wide as Elder Abuse Awareness Month. And 15th June was World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. I am passionate about defending human rights and preventing all forms of abuse. I am especially passionate about defending the rights of older people.
