Seniors are Lonely During Holidays

67 percent of adults feel happy when thinking about spending time with family and friends this holiday season

Make it easier for them

Thirty-one percent of respondents say they have felt lonely during the holiday season sometime during the past five years, and 41 percent have worried about a family member or friend feeling lonesome.

A new AARP Foundation survey found that 67 percent of adults feel happy when thinking about spending time with family and friends this holiday season; in addition, many feel loved (47 percent), joy (46 percent) and excited (44 percent). About a third (34 percent) say they typically receive more kindness from strangers this time of year.

Older persons may not be able to follow their families from place to place because of physical limitations or their financial situation. Feelings of isolation and loneliness can take hold, especially during the holidays, a time that in the past was filled with activities and traditions with family and friends.
