Even in the era of technology and instant communication, the feeling of loneliness remains a sad part of our society. It can happen to anyone, without warning and at any time. People who are elderly, ill, and/or disabled are at a high risk of feeling isolated. Their limited mobility and/or their care needs make it more difficult for them to leave their homes. This can be disheartening. Access to society may be limited, thus the outside world may come across as frightening or threatening. Your social environment shrinks with age; the wish for social contacts, however, still remains.
