Are you feeling lonely?

Feeling lonely can be fleeting, felt for just a day, or it can be longer term. It is a
normal human emotion that is simply a sign of wanting contact with people.

If you think you are feeling lonely this Easter, you could try one or more of the tips from our loneliness factsheet or Wise Guide 3: Healthy, happy, connected

At Independent Age we’ve been listening to the needs of older people for over 150 years. We believe there is lots of information that older people need but don’t always get, which is why we have put together the Wise Guide series.

The Wise Guides are packed full with helpful tips, contact numbers, good ideas and valuable insights to help boost your income, find support and stay independent.
