Parkland Fredericton is delighted that Her Honour Jocelyne Roy-Vienneau has agreed to give a talk on social isolation and seniors on Thursday, March 28 at 11 am in the lobby of Regent Hall. Social isolation and its consequences have been identified as one of the key concerns in Canada as our population ages. ”Social relationships, or the relative lack thereof, constitute a major risk factor for health –rivaling the effects of smoking, blood pressure, obesity and physical activity”. In addition to these consequences, socially isolated seniors are not able to participate and contribute to their communities and seniors are the backbone of voluntary services. Losing these contributions is a significant loss to organizations and to society. Please join us for this free presentation. All are welcome.
